Multitalented singer, songwriter, producer & actor, Francis Jocky is something of an enigma, an artist with universal appeal and blessed with a unique voice. Raised in Paris, France and now living in New York City, Francis Jocky has developed a sound that transcends borders.
He’s rapidly becoming an international personality, sharing the microphone with the likes of Bono of U2 and Stevie Wonder, just to name a few.
From an early age he learned to express himself through music and by the age of twelve had begun playing piano and writing his own songs. 
Francis Jocky has a wonderful duality as an artist, which probably has its roots in his combined educational and musical training. He is the recipient of a Ph.D. in International Relations from the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris, France, combined with being a critically acclaimed musician and artist.

Those with an adventurous palate might want to arrive earlier to hear Jocky…[his music] combines acoustics with electronic flourishes for a worldly yet melodic sound.
Sarah Rodman

Le Parisien

“Jocky’s voice, like Al Jarreau’s, is very groovy and lively, infused with instruments in very technological tones…he passes smoothly from soul to world music, from blues to ballad, and from synthesizer to simple guitar. Francis Jocky is an animal on stage with an expressive energy, capable of heating up a room in no time at all. He is truly amazing!”

"Mr. Pain” brandishes an expressive medley of jazz, funk, soul, fun and contemplative tempos, and tangible lyrical themes that will leave you reeling.
Blown away by the pieces “How Can I Stand,” “Sera” and “Song of Freedom” I hope, perhaps selfishly, that he will constantly find inspiration and cause to cry out. With this incredible project, Pain is beautiful. 
C. Lizaire


Francis Jocky plays a brilliant mixture of Soul, Rhythm and Blues, and Jazz with skill and emotional honesty.
Those qualities are rare enough in popular music they should be celebrated and encouraged whenever they are encountered.

Something Inside so strong 
Where Paris´ leading daily newspaper, Le Parisien, hears ´Al Jarreau´s successor´, my perhaps less finely-tuned lugholes suggest the new Labi Siffre.
This is one horse he´s riding alone. No need for a photo finish, Francis triumphs with Mr Pain.

“Like a funkier Cat Stevens or a more direct Dave Matthews, Cameroon native Francis Jocky exudes sweet, sunny charm as he gets to the heart of the matter. A true pleasure to discover
