Vancouver-based soul-Americana artist Frazey Ford released her critically acclaimed album U kin B the Sun via the Arts & Crafts label on Feb. 7, 2020. Ford is a founding member of the seminal folk band The Be Good Tanyas.

She has previously released two critically acclaimed solo albums, including her 2014 album Indian Ocean which made the Polaris Music Prize long list and was nominated for a Juno in 2015 in the Best Roots Album category. This album was recorded with Al Green’s band, The Hi Rhythm Section, the iconic architects of the Memphis soul sound. It was named one of the top releases of 2014, an acclaimed country soul gem inviting comparisons to Cat Power’s The Greatest. The video for Frazey’s song “Done” has captured over 2.5 million views on YouTube and still counting.

Her latest album has garnered incredible international reviews. At turns ecstatic and heavy-hearted, gloriously shambolic, and deeply purifying, U kin Be the Sun has been praised as “her best yet” (The Times) for its “dramatic and rather dazzling” (Uncut) blend of Ford’s mesmerizing vocals and percussion-soaked grooves. Performing live, Frazey Ford is a captivating presence supported by the intoxicating lilt of her band. Fans have had the opportunity to see her post pandemic as she has toured in the countries of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Sweden, Ireland and the UK in 2022 & 2023.

Frazey’s new live show for her U kin B the Sun album gives fans the irreplaceable intimate, live experience featuring Frazey and her excellent band members showcasing songs from her new album as well as fan favourites.

Sammy Volkov

Opening the show will be Edmonton’s own Sammy Volkov whose album Be Alright! was the first album to debut at number one on the CKUA Top 30 Chart. The Edmonton-based singer has “...vocals that emanate…an air of melancholy. Roy Orbison, with a dash of Chris Isaak and a pinch of gospel-era Elvis Presley are the knee-jerk comparisons, as Volkov sings like a man out of time.” (The Edmonton Journal).
