heston Francis


Heston’s music is beautiful, lyrically refreshing, vocally and melodically unique, timeless, rich and soulful.
He has been compared to legendary artists such as Marvin Gaye and Leon Ware for his honesty and musicality.  Heston possesses one of those rare, “instant classic” voices laced with confident sensuality - nostalgic, yet very much his own style. 

This Dominican born, Atlanta based, 'Love Junkie' is a hot-blooded man, unabashedly romantic, allowing listeners to enter his most intimate spaces and thoughts.  With his polished voice, passion for delivering stellar music, and loyal and growing fan base, Heston is poised to make a legendary impact on the music world.


Heston is a perfectionist and he defines his journey as a full-time musician, composer, songwriter and producer. The precision of his musicality both on his albums and love is unparalleled in this day and time. 


Heston lives and loves great music.  His music is accompanied by a full band with foundational rhythms that stem back to his island roots, comprised of percussions, horns, acoustic and electric guitars, leaving audiences captivated.


This Soulful Gentleman mesmerizes his audiences all over the World, including London, France, Holland, Japan, UAE- Doha, Middle East, Portugal, Spain and Australia. He has shared the stage with India Arie, Emili Sande, Wycliffe, George Clinton, Kanye West - just to name a few. Heston will soon begin his Transparency 2016 Tour around the globe.


“Creating timeless music has always been my ultimate goal,” says Heston with a poised, yet humble demeanor. “I want to leave the world with music that can be played for a lifetime."


Transparency is Heston's newly released fourth full album and truly an international album - having been written, recorded and produced all over the  world - from London to Amsterdam, the United States to the Caribbean.  To add further to the international flavor of Transparency, Heston has signed  with P-Vine records in Japan for the album release on 20th April, 2016 and US based E1 Distribution for world release in May, 2016.  

The meaning of the word 'Transparency' has been defined simply as "the perceived quality of intentionally shared information from a sender" and Heston is clearly transparent with his heart and soul in this album.  Along with other amazing artists - you can expect to hear tracks produced by the likes of renowned international DJ - DJ Kemit, as well as the talents of Lorenzo Johnson and  Cornell Phillips.  Heston says "I've gotten to a point in my life where I feel like I know myself best.  I’m truly comfortable with who I am, where I am, and how I am and not afraid to embrace it. I’ve lived long enough to experience a little bit of everything; from the good, to the bad, to the ugly and TRANSPARENCY is my most honest recollection of those experiences."
