Welcome to the website of composer, songwriter & musical director

Francis Goodhand

Number 1, UK Easy Listening Album Chart, December 2020


“Mr Goodhand leads the cast and band with energy, clarity, and aplomb.  Under his leadership, all the subtleties of the score are fully realized, and the audience is able to enjoy an effortless ride.”
Ron Melrose, Music Supervisor, Jersey Boys

"All credit too to Francis Goodhand’s musical direction. Familiar though the music is, it feels as though we’re hearing it for the very first time."

Gypsy, The Mill at Sonning

“Musical director Francis Goodhand oversees dynamic arrangements for an assured off-stage quartet, complemented by a trio of actor-musicians who parade here and there like travelling players.”
