Ken Burton, founder London Adventist Chorale states: “Too many books aiming to help people achieve what they want are simply ‘cut-and-paste’ or based on theories which have been passed down. Francis has been at the cutting edge of British gospel music , and it’s this first hand experience which gives legitimacy and credibility to the information. Many who are starting out need clarity and this book provides it.”

Incredible informative and inspirational. Roy has been a cheer leader and influencer of Gospel in the UK and Europe for decades he is one of the shoulders that we as UK artist stand on. He has charted the history of Gospel music in the UK but has also given every artist real tips and practical pointers to succeed in the current climate. He really has left no stone upturned in revealing the cogs that make our industry go around. We honour you Roy for your commitment to Gospel music and for documenting the process demystifying the detail.”
