Frazey Ford - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

Frazey Ford, best known as the co-founder of Canadian folk trio The Be Good Tanyas, grew up with soul music in her blood. In fact, before her days harmonizing with The Be Good Tanyas, she was in a soul band. Her first solo outing, Obadiah, started to reveal Frazey's romance with soul music, in particular, the Memphis sound. This was apparent to documentary filmmaker Robert Gordon who by chance heard a song from Obadiah on the radio. Following an inspired thought, he tracked down Frazey to suggest that she come to Memphis to record with Al Green’s legendary session band, The Hi Rhythm Section, at Royal Studios.
