Frazey Ford Announces North American Tour Dates; 'Indian Ocean' Out October 14

“Frazey Ford takes an unexpected turn on her forthcoming album. She collaborated with the Hi Rhythm Section, best known for their work as the backing band for artists like Al Green and Ann Peebles. The result is gorgeous.” – KCRW

“With subtle vibrato and pulsing emotion, Ford's velvety vocals take center stage in ‘September Fields’… the electric organ in the track transforms her normally aching lullaby into something funkier and full of sunshine.” – Mother Jones

“[Ford’s] soulful voice reinforces the celebratory mood of ‘September Fields.’” –
NPR All Songs Considered

Frazey Ford has announced that she’ll hit the road on October 14, the same day her anticipated solo album Indian Ocean is released. Frazey’s nine-city run begins in Toronto and includes stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles and Berkeley. All tour dates are listed below.

The follow up to 2010’s critically acclaimed Obadiah, Indian Ocean is a lush album filled with songs about pain and dealing with tough truths, but also about love, contrition and being bold. Part of what gives this album its gilded edge is the work of Al Green’s band, The Hi Rhythm Section, the iconic architects of the famous singer's instrumental sound. Ford is the beneficiary of their almighty talents, the trio accentuating her sensual and opulent vocals with deep-bottomed bass, subtle backbeats, and airy flights of organ. They're joined by the golden horn arrangements and the undulating tides of Debra Jean Creelman and Caroline Ballhorn's backing vocals that kick off the restless but hopeful album opener, "September Fields." John Raham, Frazey’s creative partner and co-producer, brings his considerable talents helping to create the album’s delicate musical balance. Indian Ocean was recorded, mixed and mastered between Memphis’s historic Royal Studios and Vancouver’s Afterlife Studios.
