BiographyNew York City, New York (2004 – present)
Between the release of her debut album My Paper Heart and its follow-up Hundred More Years, Battistelli married Christian band percussionist Matthew Goodwin and gave birth to her first child, Matthew Elijah. According to the Hundred More Years songfacts Battistelli chose to title her sophomore record after the track “Hundred More Years” because the tune’s subject matter of a couple falling in love and having their first child mimiced her own life. Hundred More Years was released on March 1, 2011.
Francesca Battistelli is no stranger to the stage. Raised by parents immersed in the arts and Broadway, she developed a love of music, theatre, and performance at a young age. But instead of using these talents for applause and accolades, Francesca prefers to point people to something beyond herself —towards hope in Christ. Her soulful piano-pop sound resembles a blend of her music interests — jazz, rock, gospel and R&B — woven beautifully together with themes of trust and risk-taking.
