January 19, 2016 BY Nettwerk
Following on from a banner international tour year in 2015, Vancouver’s Frazey Ford returns to Canada for a February run of tour dates, starting February 13 in Calgary, AB at Lantern Community Churchduring the Blockheater Festival and ending on February 19 at an already sold out show in Winnipeg, MB at the West End Cultural Centre. Joining Frazey onstage is her band The Quiet Revolution along with good friend Phil Cook, who opens all of her Canadian shows. All tour dates are listed below.
Though her latest critically-lauded album Indian Ocean came out late 2014, Frazey recently caught the viral attention of everyone from NPR Music to Buzzfeed to Bitch with her feisty music video for stand-out album track “Done,”which not only showcased her dance moves and sassy strut, but also Frazey’s fabulous jumpsuit collection.

Praise For Indian Ocean
“Indian Ocean is textured with organ undertones, punchy horn sections and laid-back bass lines. And of course, overtop is Ford’s instantly recognizable voice, with its delicate power, warped vowels and quaintly disrupted diction…Ford’s songwriting and voice shine through, tempting to you to press the repeat button.” — Exclaim!
“Frazey Ford progresses in country-soul directions on her smokey new album
Indian Ocean.”— Globe & Mail
“The result on her album is a clash of culture, which makes Indian Ocean wholly, and unexpectedly, original.” — The Province
“Frazey Ford is well known as a folk artist, but she has always had an old soul beneath her airy and tremulous voice. Indian Ocean, her second release, has given that soul a haven for a depth of expression we haven’t heard before.” — !earshot
“For both old and new Frazey Ford listeners, Indian Ocean stands out as a textbook example for a solid Americana album.” — The Gateway
“That’s Ford’s genius – finding the ways opposing forces complement each other. She’s got the glitter to balance her grit, and exactly enough sully in her sweet.”
— NPR Music
“An album that transcends its influence… she stands centre of this LP
like a quiet testifying force.” — Mojo (4 Stars)
