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.

Temples - FUV Live - 2014

by Kara Manning

It's not often that the first recording of a young band perfectly conveys that group's promise and mission. Temples, then a duo, managed to do that very thing with their debut single, 2012's "Shelter Song." That delectable slice of woozy psychedelic pop (which got them signed to Heavenly Recordings) led to the eventual addition of two other bandmates and three strong 2013 singles: "Colours To Life," "Mesmerise" and "Keep In The Dark." Last winter, Temples released their handsome, self-produced debut album, Sun Structures. It's been a heady gallop for the band, spurred on by prestigious support slots, sold-out headlining gigs and major festival outings.

Owl John - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

It’s been a decade since Scottish singer-songwriter Scott Hutchison formed the band Frightened Rabbit. After four albums, a major label record deal and an intense few years of touring and gaining a huge international audience, he was drained. It was obvious to everyone, including his label, that Scott not only needed take time off from his band, but also to pursue his desire to record some songs on his own. With the blessing and support of his label and his bandmates, he and some members of Frightened Rabbit decamped to the Isle of Mull off the coast of Scotland and commenced a fast-paced recording project dubbed Owl John (Scott’s embellished middle name).

Graham Nash - FUV Live - 2014

Dennis Elsas with Graham Nash

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Graham Nash this past summer, shortly after he had overseen the production and release of CSNY 1974 – a beautiful audio/visual collection capturing the band during one of their most memorable tours. He had also recently completed his fascinating autobiography, Wild Tales, chronicling his historic musical and personal journey.

Ellis Paul - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

For some 25 years, Ellis Paul has been one of his generation's consistently outstanding songwriters. A Maine native, he broke out of Boston, where he was a perennial Boston Music Awards winner. Since moving to Virginia for family reasons a decade ago, he's continued to tour 100-150 nights a year and managed to keep his writing fresh. For his latest CD, Chasing Beauty, he went to Atlanta to collaborate with Kristian Bush of Sugarland fame.
