Touching on souls with Frazey Ford

Frazey Ford’s music is about renewal, strength, knowing when to breath in and let go, trusting yourself, letting the waves rush over and appreciating all the things worth loving.

She will be coming to the Filberg Centre in Courtenay Friday, April 27.

The root of all soul music is freedom-sheer abandon. It’s about luxuriating in the emotions that make us all human. No wonder singer Frazey Ford placed her ear to the earth and tapped into that lush tradition to give voice to her own stories on Indian Ocean, an album about pain and dealing with tough truths but also about trust, love contrition and being bold.

Ford’s self-possession and passion puts flesh to the musical bones.

Whether it’s a main stage festival play or an intimate venue, Frazey touches the souls of her fans wherever she tours. No stranger to the Comox Valley, Frazey returns here to showcase tunes from her upcoming new release as well award-winning favourites from her first two albums.

Gritty singer-songwriter Steph Cameron has been added as support for Frazey. A one-time travelling musician and busker, Cameron’s musical beginnings can be traced to hitching train rides across the country, singing for her supper and channelling a raw punk energy inspired by life on the road. Cameron is now based in Saskatoon, and has two releases to her name, Sad-Eyed Lonesome Lady (2014) and Daybreak Over Jackson Street (2017).

Advance tickets are $30 plus GST, and are available at Bop City, Riders Pizza in Cumberland and online at Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show is set for 8 p.m.
