Frazey FordAfter a decade in the terrific Vancouver trio, The Be Good Tanyas, Frazey Ford went solo, releasing a charming debut album, Obadiah, in 2010, that received glowing reviews from the Washington Post, which praised her “warm voice” and the album’s “smoky, soulful mood,” and the New York Times, which called her sound an amalgam of two classic records, Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together and Neil Young’s Harvest. She’s just released a new album, Indian Ocean, and the Al Green comparison still applies – Al’s band the Hi Rhythm Section plays backup, and the first single, “September Fields,” has an irresistible soul groove that takes you straight to Beale Street.


“It was a crazy, adventurous time for everybody,” Frazey says of her early years. “My parents were on the run from the Vietnam War and had escaped into communes in Canada where my sister and I were born.” She grew up listening to singers like Ann Peebles, Donny Hathaway, and Roberta Flack, and she began to write her own music “just for the joy of it,” she says. Her lyrics are tender and poignant. On “Hey Little Mama,” she sings to a new mother, “You’re trying to be for somebody what nobody was for you,” and then she adds, “But oh, you’ll love her like you never thought you could.” The same could be said of Frazey’s music – give it a listen and you’re likely to love it like you never thought you could!

 

Sonoma County singer and songwriter David Luning has an easy country drawl and a comfortable way of putting across a song, whether playing a tender ballad or a slide-guitar  romp. The website Music Worth Reviewing calls his latest album, Just Drop On By, “a gritty, joyful, soulful piece of Americana” and says it’s “sure to establish him as a definitive voice in the Americana/folk scene.” David attended UC Santa Cruz, studied Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music, and, in January of this year, sang his song “In Hell I Am” on American Idol, prompting Keith Urban to praise his “staunch originality.” His music is a delightful blend of folk and rock, country and blues, performed with heart and charm.
