‘Spellbinding performer’ brings smoky vocals to Vernon – Vernon Morning Star

His music may not fit the boundaries of any specific genre, but one thing is certain: When Frazey Ford brings his blend of smooth jazz and smoky soul to the Vernon and District Performing Arts Center (VDPAC) on April 20, the audience will be transported to a world where it is safe to move freely and look within.

Based in Vancouver, the former singer and guitarist of The Be Good Tanyas, Ford mixes folk, soul and psychedelia as her third album, U Kin B the Sun, traverses a spellbinding world of smooth rhythms and 70s funk that will attract of course the public. moving.

“I used to talk more in metaphors, but this album came out a lot more raw and direct,” Ford said. “I would say it’s a result of being more in my body and more in touch with the wholeness of anger, taking space and having boundaries. On this record, I freed myself from the folk writing format, and that was a whole other exploration for me.

VDPAC Artistic Director Erin Kennedy calls Ford a “spellbinding performer” whose unique sound “allows us to escape and leave our day behind us as we are enveloped in her beautiful music and storytelling.”
