Frazey Ford

Vancouver-based Soul-Americana artist Frazey Ford released her critically acclaimed album U kin B the Sun via the Arts & Crafts label on February 7, 2020. Ford is a founding member of the seminal folk band The Be Good Tanyas.

She has previously released two critically acclaimed solo albums, including her 2014 album “Indian Ocean” which made the Polaris Prize long list and was nominated for a Juno in 2015 in the best roots album category. This album was recorded with Al Green’s band, The Hi Rhythm Section, the iconic architects of the Memphis soul sound. It was named one of the top releases of 2014, an acclaimed country soul gem inviting comparisons to Cat Power’s The Greatest. The video for Frazey’s song Done from this album has captured over 2.5 million view on YouTube and still counting.

Her latest album has garnered incredible international reviews. At turns ecstatic and heavy-hearted, gloriously shambolic, and deeply purifying, U kin Be the Sun has been praised as “her best yet” (The Times) for its “dramatic and rather dazzling” (Uncut) blend of Ford’s mesmerizing vocals and percussion-soaked grooves. Performing live, Frazey Ford is a captivating presence supported by the intoxicating lilt of her band. Fans have had the opportunity to see her post pandemic as she has toured in the countries of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Sweden, Ireland and the UK in 2022 & 2023. Frazey new live show for her U Kin B the Sun album gives fans the irreplaceable intimate, live experience featuring Frazey and her excellent band members showcasing songs from her new album as well as fan favourites.

Press quotes: “With lyrics like Joni Mitchell and a voice à la Macy Gray, but all her indelibly own….The music is beautiful, the stories she sings about stark, tackling it all, from right-wing politics to abuse. Somehow, though, it is never too sad - more a celebration of getting through life.” — GQ Magazine

“Her vocals are an unmistakable thing of wonder. Lilting, creamy and laidback….Her new album lets these vocals shine with simple but tuneful compositions and lots of sonic space for the gentle melodies to grow and bloom.” — Readers Digest
