One of our favorite records this year was Obadiah, the new solo release from Frazey Ford — former lead singer of the folk group The Be Good Tanyas. Her new record is a soulful slow burner, and as she says, something of a return to her roots. Songs draw on her love of both soul and country music, with lyrics about reconciling her upbringing and raising a child of her own.
Look to the end of the audio portion for her cover of “The Happy Song” (Otis Redding).
