Q, also known as Francesca Mudannayake, is a Sri Lankan based singer/songwriter who has been performing since she was 6. After honing her skills at the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in the UK and singing at the Barbican Theatre, Q released her debut EP Hysteria in April 2021. Blending alternative R&B with lyrics on female sexuality and independence, Rolling Stone India described it as “everything you want to hear in music of empowerment”. In addition to this she has modelled for fashion brands and has appeared in magazines like L’Officiel Italia and Cosmopolitan Sri Lanka. An actor too, she was most recently featured in Deepa Mehta’s Funny Boy.

"I can speak from my own self, that I am a bit of a weird, complex creature that is very emotional and very sensitive to things. So for the past couple of years, I've just been going through all of those emotions and thinking, well, I should just really put this all down in an EP. Because these are all my lived experiences. And maybe, just maybe if a girl is listening to it, they might be a bit more comfortable with themselves, you know, and think to themselves, oh, I don't need to be just this, and I don't need to be just that. I can be all of this. If you can come to that sort of point where you're at peace, with all of these different personalities that you have, I think it's a better way to live."
