Francis Dunnery is an English musician, singer-songwriter, record producer and record label owner. He is best known as a solo performer since 1990. Dunnery's musical approach is diverse. While with It Bites, his songs mixed an outright love of varied pop music with a solid grounding in progressive rock and hard rock. His solo work has continued to express these influences but added further elements including soul, disco, folk music, blues, hip-hop beats, chamber pop and electronica. Most of his tours have been solo and acoustic-based, and this has increasingly influenced the sound of his albums.
