Obadiah by Frazey Ford
Frazey Ford steps out of her spot in the Canadian folk trio, The Be Good Tanyas, for her debut solo album, Obadiah.  A blend of folk-rock and soul with acoustic guitar, hushed drums, banjo, organ, little swells of strings, and even gently building brass comes across as a fairly even tempoed mood album.  It's Ford's voice that is undeniably the strength of the album.  Describe it any way you want (throaty, sultry, smoky), it is compelling and perfect for the stories that her songs tell.  These stories cover relationships, love and loss, motherhood, and family each with characters which Ford inhabits seamlessly.

Visit Frazey Ford's Web site to learn more about her and her album.  There's also an interview with Ford on NPR with links to other content and check out the reviews below.
