“Fraser/Daley have an understanding of the music they play that rivals that of the originators, and their own compositions can look the classics in the eye knowing they are as good as what has gone before” – Bob Segarini
Fraser Daley‘s music combines the freshness and vitality of authentic country blues with close vocal harmony “sounding so sweet these two could be siblings”(Eric Thom, Maverick). This duo also sounds uncannily like a full group when Alec employs the “brushbass” technique, playing a small drum mounted on his standup bass simultaneously with his basslines. Their repertoire combines old-time blues like Blind Lemon Jefferson’s “Bad Luck Blues” with original songs in the country blues style like “Oh Alberta” and “Mr. Blues..”
With their fresh take on the country blues, Fraser/Daley is winning fans across the country. Radio airplay has been strong, with cuts from their debut CD remaining in rotation on several blues shows and the CBC Galaxie network. The duo also has a strong presence on YouTube, with ‘live in the studio’ videos racking up hundreds and even thousands of unique views.
