BIO
From humble beginnings in the Michigan industrial city of Saginaw to bright lights on national stages, Stewart Francke's creative work has transformed the lives of thousands who've listened to his songs or read his writing. Since releasing his first album in 1995, Stewart has created a body of work cited by critics as spiritual in tone and remarkable in its emotional breadth. In 2009 Saginaw recognized their favorite son by awarding him a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Saginaw County Cultural Arts Commission for "the enjoyment and insight his songs have brought to so many in his home town, home state and beyond."

A bone marrow transplant survivor, Stewart has been recognized by the Points Of Light Foundation for his personal work in cancer patient support. The Stewart Francke Leukemia Foundation was presented the prestigious Partnership In Humanity Award by the Detroit Newspapers and he was named Volunteer of the Year by the National Marrow Donor Program in 2002. He's been recognized by his peers in his community through numerous Detroit Music Awards, including Best Artist, Songwriter & Album. Hour Detroit readers voted him most popular musician 2002-2004. He was awarded a Creative Artist Grant by Artserve Michigan in 2004.

He's performed on bills with the likes of Sheryl Crow, Stevie Winwood, Steve Earle, Eddie Money, Huey Lewis & The News, Shawn Colvin, Hootie & The Blowfish, Chicago, Hall & Oates, Chuck Berry and many others, and fronts his own 10 piece soul band at venues across the country.

His first album, Where The River Meets The Bay (1995), contained the hit single, "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," made famous through its use as an episode theme for the TV show Melrose Place. In the ensuing nine albums there have been other regional hits, including a duet with Detroit soul legend Mitch Ryder and several songs cut with the Funk Brothers, in what was their last session together. He's sold over 50,000 copies of his nine albums through independent distribution and marketing, with his latest being 2009's Alive & Unplugged At The Ark.
