Francis, you're a star!" - Bono U2
"Amazing, you sound like Otis Redding" - Stevie Wonder
"Jocky is a sort of postmodern soul man..." - Global Rhythm Magazine
"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!" - Le Parisien
Multitalented singer, songwriter, & producer Francis Jocky is something of an enigma, an artist with a universal appeal. Raised in Paris, France and now living in New York City, 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. His latest project- An EP entitle "SANCTIFIED", produced and recorded in New York City, features some of music top producers and recording engineers including extraordinary writer Andrew Wyatt and Grammy Award Winner Scott Jacoby (John Legend, Ayo, Naturally Seven, etc.).
On "SANCTIFIED" Jocky blends aspects of Classic Rock n Roll, Pop, and Soul into a patchwork of tracks that will find a home in any true music lover’s collection.
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 PhD from the prestigious Sorbonne University in Paris. "I have traveled the world, and there is no place like New York. The energy keeps you moving- it's raw and it fusels your creativity. The city challenges you to be the best yet, it has no place for compassion". It only demands the best and that what "SANCTIFIED" is says Francis Jocky.
