If I had to sum up today’s artist in four words, it might be “funny name, serious voice”. Frazey Ford is a former member and co-founder of the Vancouver-based Be Good Tanyas (see Song of the Day #24). Fans of that band will recognize Frazey’s lovely and unique rootsy vocals. In this video, another great live performance from KEXP in Seattle, Frazey performs September Field.
One is not enough. Here’s Frazey performing Gospel Song from the same session. You can watch all four songs from this set, as well as a ton of other great live music videos at KEXP’s youtube channel. If you like Frazey Ford, also check out her episode of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series.
