Frazey Ford

U Kin B The Sun (LP)

Vancouver-based soul-Americana artist Frazey Ford released her third album U kin B the Sun. The album is at turns ecstatic and heavy-hearted, gloriously shambolic and deeply purifying. Throughout the stirring collection, Ford seamlessly inhabits an entire world of shapeshifting rhythm, elevating every beat and groove with the subtle magnetism of her mesmerizing voice as she examines pain and loss telegraphed through a prism of unfettered joy.

Recorded at John Raham's Afterlife Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, featuring her Vancouver musicians Darren Parris, Leon Power, Craig McCaul and Caroline Ballhorn, along with Phil Cook on keys, U kin B the Sun follows Ford's 2014 release Indian Ocean, an album made with members of legendary Memphis soul band The Hi Rhythm Section. U kin B the Sun partly draws inspiration from several instances of serendipity that transpired during her international touring in support of Indian Ocean - including playing separate rooms in the same venue as D'Angelo one night in Holland, which eventually prompted her 2017 cover of the iconic neo-soul singer's "When We Get By."
