Frazey Ford is revered for her soulful voice, captivating live show, and immersive lyrical storytelling and is returning with her first new original music in five years with her new album U Kin B the Sun due out Feb 2020
Frazey first became known to UK audiences within her role as a founding member of the beloved Canadian alt-folk band The Be Good Tanyas
In 2010, Frazey Ford launched her solo career with her debut album Obadiah on Nettwerk Records. Obadiah garnered reviews in publications such as The New York Times and The Guardian. In October 2014 Frazey returned with her second Nettwerk released solo album, Indian Ocean - a lush album filled with songs about love, contrition and being bold. Frazey recorded this album in Memphis TN at the famed Royal Studios and as well in Vancouver at Afterlife Studios with producer John Raham taking on the role of co-producer alongside Frazey.
‘A singer and songwriter who can pack a wealth of heartbreak, forbearance and rapture into the smallest intimations, and even into the spaces in between them’ (Uncut)
‘It’s hard to think of another singer who suggests Dolly Parton, Ann Peebles and Feist. She phrases intuitively, waiting on a word and then drawing it out, and turns good lyrics to oatmeal, adding strange new colors to vowels, making whole syllables vanish’ (New York Times)
Frazey is now signed to the Arts & Crafts label in Canada. She has been receiving rave reviews for her first single and video from this new album for her soulful activism anthem ‘The Kids Are Having None of It’
Frazey plays an intimate show at London’s stunning Union Chapel; the perfect setting for her unbridled full-throated ebullience that takes listeners down to where the soul rivers run deep.
‘Ford’s voice is a wonder, scrunching and chewing up words into airy new shapes that are not always clear, but which have an emotional intensity that’s gestural more than emphatic. Epiphanies ride on the most effortless grooves; a precise recreation of historical settings, given a new spin by the character of Ford’s voice and the quality of her songs’ (Uncut)
