Frazey Ford Announces Headline Tour Dates Presented by CBC Radio 3 And Exclaim!

Vancouver songstress Frazey Ford, formerly of The Be Good Tanyas, has announced a handful of headline tour dates (presented by CBC Radio 3 and Exclaim!) that kick off on Nov 19th in Edmonton, AB.

Frazey has spent the past few months touring North American and the UK with her band The Quiet Revolution in support of her critically-acclaimed debut solo album Obadiah. Her live shows have been met with rave reviews. The Financial Times (UK) recently said, "Frazey Ford came to fame as a third of the Be Good Tanyas, a Vancouver folk trio with the lyrical precision of a scalpel. But her concert at the Purcell Room confirmed what her practically perfect solo album Obadiah had suggested: that as a lead singer she is poised halfway between folk and soul, paying simultaneous obeisance to Bob Dylan and to Otis Redding."

Obadiah was released this past July and debuted at #6 on the Overall Digital Album Chart in Canada, putting her in the company of such artists as Eminem, Sheryl Crow, Jack Johnson and fellow Canadian artist Drake. Exclaim! said Obadiah was "a multi-generational sonic quilt you just can't wait to sink into, and her voice is one you hope will linger in your mind for a long time," and The New York Times commented, "It's hard to think of another singer who suggests Dolly Parton, Ann Peebles and Feist.” The Globe and Mail said Obadiah was "consistently rewarding" and NPR host Bob Boilen called it "a wonderful, wonderful record."
