Francesca de Valence is an Australian artist, award-winning songwriter, international speaker and mentor, and the founder of I Heart Songwriting Club; helping emerging singer-songwriters inspire their way to success in a music career they love. She writes a monthly column for Songwriting Magazine UK, has a fortnightly ABC Radio songwriting segment and facilitates songwriting workshops nationally and internationally for PROs including APRA AMCOS & IMRO.

Acknowledged by the Los Angeles Music Awards with an International Songwriter of the Year Award and also holding an Australian Songwriting Award, Francesca has supported artists including Jimmy Webb, Belinda Carlisle and The Manhattan Transfer, and her latest show “Songs de Paris” is a breathtaking musical and visual immersion of Paris. When she’s not on the road running workshops and speaking, Francesca can be found in her hometown of Brisbane or her creative hub in Paris – eating baguettes and writing songs in French language.
