Francine live at T.T. the Bear's Place, December 2007.
|Origin||Boston, Massachusetts, United States|
Francine was founded by Clayton Scoble, who previously performed with Til Tuesday and Aimee Mann, and was a member of Poundcake. He assembled the group toward the end of 1997 and soon after self-released a few solo demo tapes. The newly formed band then released an EP and a full-length on Massachusetts indie label Q Division Records. A second album followed in 2003. The group received positive reviews but did not tour nationally behind the album. In 2006, the group returned with a third full-length, entitled Airshow. The Francine song "Albany Brownout" was featured on Fox network's series The O.C. in January, on Episode 3.11, "The Safe Harbor."
Francine is currently working on an as-yet-untitled fourth album.
