Her early days making folky guitar tracks came to a halt after she got tendonitis harvesting girthy vegetables (read: butternut squash). Frances came to CapRadio to talk about her post-squash music, where her samples come from and how being fluent in Spanish doens't mean you're understood BY the Spanish. Frances has upcoming tour dates in the Bay Area this May.
