About Us

The first series of Ditty In A Dash is here. Artist, musician and songwriter Frances will challenge some of her most creative friends to write a song from scratch in just 15 minutes. Each episode will see Frances invite a special guest into her home studio, once a fortnight, for a chat about their musical journeys, before setting the timer and getting down to business. With chart-topping, award winning guests lined up, the first series is guaranteed to pull back the curtain and reveal a glimpse of the talents of some of the music industry’s biggest songwriters.

Latest Episodes

S1 Ep 5: Andrew Jackson

The legendary Andrew Jackson joined me for this episode and what a joy it was! Andrew has written for Dua Lipa, Rag ’n’ Bone Man, James Arthur, Kygo and Hailee Steinfeld to name but a few. We have been writing together fairly regularly for over a year now and he is definitely one of my favourite collaborators. I’m sure you’ll love him as much as I do!

S1 Ep4: The Covid-19 Solo Edition

Recorded in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.. this was a very interesting one to do. I’m used to writing on my own, but I really felt the pressure this time!! I hope you enjoy this little peek inside my brain!

S1 Ep3: Becky Hill

I was so lucky to have Becky Hill join me for episode 3. She is a powerhouse vocalist and an incredible songwriter! Year after year her career gets more exciting. Her releases shoot up the charts and you’d struggle to do a journey in the car without hearing her voice on the radio. We hit it off straight away when we first met a year or so ago and I’ve adored working with her in the studio. I’ve no doubt you’ll love her as much as I do!

S1 Ep2: Maisie Peters

The wonderful Maisie Peters joined me for today’s episode. She is a songwriting pocket rocket bursting with genius ideas and lyrics that make you melt into an emotional puddle or go ‘OMG ME TOO’! It was a total pleasure to have her and I’m sure you’ll agree that she is going to take over the world any moment now!

S1 Ep1: James Newman

It’s episode 1! To kick things off with a bang, I convinced superstar songwriter James Newman to come and hang with me for a little while and play... Ditty In A Dash! We chatted about the hits he’s had and the never heard before back catalogue... but best of all of course, we picked a genre from the ‘hit hat’, flexed our musical muscles, set the timer and attempted to write a ditty, in a dash!!
