Review of John Frazier:

Steve Martin’s protégé, John Frazier, an A-Session musician’s musician, known for his brilliant mastery of the mandolin, guitar and the fiddle, and his Frazier Band, has audiences screaming for more during his 2016-17 tour for their CD “Some People Change.”  John Frazier is sensitive to the needs of others, and being a single father of two children, makes him want to connect even more to his audience as he knows that music can be very healing in so many ways, which is personally very gratifying for him.  
 
The CD was produced at the famous Destiny Studios in East Nashville with some VIP performers making appearances on it; Mr. Frazier also features 5 of his original songs; The Rod & The Cane, Tell Me (Moving Along On The Water), Pie In The Sky, Flesh & Bone and Fall Down/Rise Up. 

Mr. Frazier is by no means a “newbie” to the music scene.  He has toured and played with film and comedy legend Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. During the tour, Mr. Frazier, Mr. Martin, and the Rangers co-wrote the song “Go Away, Stop, Turn Around, Come Back,” that Mr. Martin recorded on Rare Bird Alert; and also with John Cowan, Jim Lauderdale and bands, such as, Yonder Mountain String Band and Hit & Run.  He brings a powerful, eclectic history as an acoustic and bluegrass performer into his leadership of FrazierBand.  Forever on the move to share his passion for music, he has performed at venues all across the U.S. and overseas from the Grande Ole Opry to The Kennedy Center, and at the Royal Festival Hall in London. He has also appeared on countless TV shows.
