Indie folk singer-songwriter Robert Francis almost abandoned his music career after a near-nervous breakdown following the release of his critically acclaimed third album, Strangers in the First Place (2012). It wasn’t too long, however, before his passion for music drew him back into the recording studio and onto the road. “I’d never known a life other than one consumed by music,” he says. “I had to lose myself in order to rediscover who I was in the beginning.” Francis plays with his backing band in support of his latest release, Heaven, at The Mothlight on Monday, June 23, at 9:30 p.m. Denny and the Jets also perform. $10/$12. themothlight.com.
