Frazey Ford on tour for her second solo album, Indian Ocean. The lead single is “September Fields,” which premiered on NPR’s All Songs Considered.

Ford is also known as the lead voice of Vancouver-based alt-folk band The Be Good Tanyas. She released her debut solo album Obadiah in 2010.

For Indian Ocean, Ford recorded with Al Green’s band, The Hi Rhythm Section. The band includes Charles Hodges (organ), Leroy Hodges (bass) and Teenie Hodges (guitar), who recently passed away. Backup vocalists include Debra Jean Creelman and Caroline Ballhorn. John Raham co-produced the album, which was recorded, mixed and mastered between Memphis’s Royal Studios and Vancouver’s Afterlife Studios.

“It was an amazing feeling being in that studio, singing into those old microphones, and collaborating with these incredibly talented heroes of subtle groove and soul. I could feel the history and vibe of that place coming up through the floor,” Ford said in a press release for the album.
