Robert Francis (born September 25, 1987 in Los Angeles, California) is a multi-instrumentalist, Americana singer-songwriter. His debut full-length album One By One was released in August 2007 by Aeronaut Records. The record has gained attention due, in part, to Francis's musical performances that stem from his "eccentric classical-record-producer and pianist father, a Mexican mother who frequently invited her sisters over to sing Ranchero songs, a Hari Krishna brother, and two older sisters who were in various rock bands that played in clubs all over the city".
One of his popular songs, "Junebug", was featured as a free song on iTunes for a week. This song reached #26 in Germany and #22 in Switzerland.
It was announced that Francis would release his third album, and first with Vanguard Records, Strangers in the First Place, on May 22. Following the announcement, Some Things Never Change, the album's first single, was released as a free download on his website.
Francis' song, "All of My Trains," from his album "One By One" appeared in the 2009 film, The Vicious Kind.
Two of his songs, "Dakota" and "All of My Trains", were used in the 2012 film Deadfall.
