Fans of groups like the Infamous Stringdusters and the Punch Brothers will find plenty to enjoy in Frazierband. Led by renowned progressive bluegrass multi-instrumentalist John Frazier (vocals, mandolin, guitars, fiddle), FrazierBand have just recorded their new album showcasing their hybrid, bluegrass sound. John Frazier is a well-respected Nashville-based string player who has played alongside everyone from Hit & Run Bluegrass, Del McCoury, and Bela Fleck to John Prine and Steve Martin. The group is getting to release their sophomore album, Frazierband: Some People Change, and Glide Magazine is excited to premiere of the its standout tracks, “Tell Me (Moving Along On The Water)”.
On the song, John Frazier says, “I wrote this song a couple of years ago with Travis Book (Infamous Stringdusters). It’s the only co-write on the album, so that aspect is pretty cool. It started out as more of a troubadour song: just played and sung solo with an acoustic guitar. Adding the intro and instrumental sections to it was a nice challenge, and I was pleasantly surprised to feel so comfortable with the result. I owe a lot of that to the guys in the band, who fell into the groove and played so beautifully on the session. To me, the instrumental support of the song itself reflects and enhances the questions asked by the lyrics, and creates a singular compositional inquisition that is beyond what I imagined possible with what was, originally and essentially, a simple song.”
