But their common ground was Jeff Healey. The master jazz, rock and blues musician whose career was cut tragically short when he died in 2008 referred to Fraser and Daley as his “big brother and little brother.” It’s an apt description of two guys who were plainly meant to play together.
Their sound is whimsical, mostly original and utterly musical: “country, blues, and country-blues” as they call it, with a hint of old-time jazz and enough big grins and backbeats to earn the term “party music.”
We talked to Fraser/Daley about their relationship with Healey, their new CD, and the musical magic they make together. Enjoy!
