Frazey Ford with Garrett Kato
Following her stunning 2016 Australian live debut, where she mesmerised crowds at Bluesfest, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide with her boldly sincere self-possession and full-throated ebullience that puts flesh to musical bones, Frazey Ford has announced a return to Australia this November and will be joined by Garrett Kato & Odette Mercy & Her Soul Atomics plus a run of local supports. The East Vancouver-based singer songwriter will debut in Auckland (New Zealand), Western Australia and Brisbane, along with a headline performance at Mullum Music Festival on 19 November.
Exuding equal parts Americana, alt-country, and soul, Frazey Ford (Be-Good Tanyas) has bloomed as a solo artist, the soulful, honey-dipped restraint in her vocals and lyrical intimacies finding a growing Australian following in recent years.
Frazey will bring audience favourites September Fields and Done down under alongside her single release, a lush reinterpretation of D’Angelos’ When We Get By, out now via Caroline Australia.
When We Get By is the first single in three years to be released by Frazey since her scathingly soulful and brutally honest stand-up-for-yourself 2014 anthem Done, which has over one million YouTube views.
With the momentum of her two solo albums—2010’s Obadiah and 2014’s Indian Ocean—Frazey is returning to Afterlife Studios to record her third outing which will be released by Arts & Crafts Records. Frazey will be taking the seat of co-producer with John Raham (We Are The City, Soujouners, Destroyer), a familiar face from Frazey’s past projects, and her new album will showcase talent from Vancouver and international A-listers alike.
The lightness and hallowed grace Frazey Ford casts on audiences during her live performances lifts melodies to new heights as she sings about renewal, strength, pain, tough truths, knowing when to breath in and let go, trusting yourself, being bold and appreciating all the nuances of love to be found in life. It’s an experience Auckland and Australian audiences from coast to coast will be able to immerse themselves in this November.
