"ONE SONG CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING"
17Days Music is a songwriter, producer and mixer management company founded in 2017.
At its helm is Lucy Francis whose time in music spans over 18 years and includes experience in artist, writer and producer management and records and publishing A&R.
The company is founded on the belief that one song can change everything and we believe our roster has the skill to deliver that song start to finish.
What Song Changed Everything?
"I can safely say Prince is my favourite artist of all time. He is indefinable, innovative, brave, deviant, classic, timeless, Genius.
Having been obsessed from the age of 10 all I dreamt of was to see him live. The Gold Tour coincided with my 12th birthday.
All my dreams came true and my life changed.
The day he died I sat in my lonely room with two cigarettes and a broken heart listening to this song on repeat.
I knew naming my company in his honour would make me strive to protect and push for the best for and from my creative roster and so, 17days Music was born. "
"Boo by Ms Dynamite ft. Sticky for me was the most exciting, interesting and powerful tune from a female artist from London in this era! It completely embodies my adolescent years growing up in east London and for me is the soundtrack to my youth! Ms Dynamite will forever be my idol for being unapologetically fierce on this track."
“It was the first record I received a proper credit on. That was the moment I knew I wanted to mix records.”
“A lot of Motown songs are the perfect templates for songwriting but for me especially this one. It had everything I didn’t know I wanted in a song and made me want to work out why it’s so powerful”
“It made me want to play in a band.”
“This song gave me knowledge that is was possible to write something with depth and a message that was neither ‘preachy’ or imperious, it took me 3 hours to write but 10 years of living to be able to express it in a way that didn’t feel heavy handed. It’s ultimately about kindness which I still believe is the purpose of life.
Aside from the song itself, it rewarded me with all manner of opportunities and set out my mission statement in terms of future writing; to write pop music both with purpose and substance that could make a difference to the life of the listener however small that may be.”
