The East Vancouver-based singer songwriter exudes equal parts Americana, alt-country and soul. Known as the golden voice from 90’s exquisite alt folksters, Be Good Tanyas; Frazey Ford has bloomed as a solo artist with her honey-dipped restraint in her vocals and lyrical intimacies finding a growing audience around the world as her YouTube videos amassed over 2 million views.
The feisty music video for stand-out track Done from her latest critically-lauded album Indian Ocean, caught the viral attention of everyone from NPR Music to Buzzfeed to Rhythms Magazine Australia; which not only showcased her dance moves and sassy strut, but also Frazey’s fabulous jumpsuit collection.
“As with previous dynamic duos Black Keys and White Stripes, you’re offered a soulful, howling vocalist/ guitarist (David Novak) and a hefty, no-frills drummer (John-Henry Pajak), the sound a punky retread of 60s R’n’B. Both men pledge allegiance to Stax/Motown, their soul moves refracted through a lens of their favourite garage rock bands: The Stooges and The Strokes.”
