After the Group disbanded, Franny worked as a supporting vocalist with Bob Dylan, Tanya Tucker & Glen Campbell, Suzi Quatro, Barbra Streisand & Gene Simmons (of “KISS”) to name a few. The highlight being touring around the world (abroad & in the USA) and playing Broadway as one of Bette Midler’s revered & adored “Harlettes”.
During this time, she met & married her superlative husband Andrew McCartney, for which she is ever grateful to Bette. Going back to her roots in musical theatre, she has appeared in plays from California to N.Y. & Toronto, garnering rave reviews. She enjoys singing all kinds of music including opera, which she studied for many years with Madame Marina Koshetz (who continues to coach her from on high). After Marina’s passing, fate brought her to Smitty.
She began singing in his exceptional “Harmony Choir”, became one of his soloists, and discovered that he had also written a wealth of fantastic songs in many different genres. He is especially knowledgeable in the art of Jazz. He has not only been a wonderful teacher, but a great friend.
Her plan is to spend her time on the planet surrounded by people she loves (& who love her) doing meaningful things. One of which is sharing her joy of music & life with others. What’s wonderful is that there’s so much more to learn & do.
