HIDDEN GEMS  |  Francie Conway

The seeds for this album Hidden Gems were sown when The Zombies were inducted to the Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame in March 2019 in New York City.


Due to this achievement widespread interest has grown in the band members individual projects which include ARGENT, Colin Blunstone and The Chris White Experience.   

Francie and Chris have a longstanding musical relationship since the 80’s and Francie is featured on three of the albums from The Chris White Experience ; these are included on Hidden Gems.

 

The artwork of the Hidden Gems CD  reflects the Vinyl experience, with great quality sound and the convenience of a CD.
