FRASER A. GORMAN

Sat 1st Sep 8:30pm

To coincide with the release of his sophomore album ‘Easy Dazy’ out July 13 on Caroline Australia, Fraser A. Gorman has announced a national Australian tour kicking off in Adelaide on August 18 and finishing in Brisbane on September 28.

‘Easy Dazy' - the follow up to Fraser’s debut album ‘Slow Gum’ - was recorded at Head Gap with producer Nicolas Vernhes (War on Drugs, Silver Jews, Cat Power) and Melbourne musician Dan Luscombe (The Drones). The record also features guest musician friends including members of King Gizzard, Leah Senior, Anika Ostendorf (Hachiku) and Hollie Joyce. 

Gorman's songwriting builds around his ability to convey his life, hopes, and fears openly with sun-drenched tones and lyrical wit. Sonically, the album has a warm and timeless feel. Taking a slight step away from the country folk vibes of his previous releases, 'Easy Dazy’ is more laid-back Americana with a driving pop sensibility. Tasteful horn arrangements sprinkled on a few tracks evoke the vibe of contemporary blue-eyed soul and the lush background vocals evoke the sound somewhere between Transformer era Lou Reed and Bill Fay's 'Omega Day'.

‘Easy Dazy’ will be out July 13, 2018 and is available HERE on Caroline Australia

Sean McMahon is a dedicated, deft singer, songwriter and performer.   

His poetic and melodic style of song writing is loaded with confessional narratives, vivid story telling and lyrical beauty.  

Over the past decade, and a handful of albums, he has honed a style and voice all his own, and traversed a musical landscape from densely textured alt-country through to an eclectic blend of folk, blues, alt-country and rock and roll.  

Sean McMahon and Blind Date Records are pleased to announce the release of the next single from the forthcoming album - 'Spring'  and an accompanying 18 date solo tour from Melbourne to Brisbane.

Sean will play Major Tom's on Saturday August 11

"..a master of his craft." - Sydney Morning Herald

"..some of the tastiest guitar playing and songwriting around" - Rhythms 

" McMahon walks that fine line between edginess and vulnerability" - Happy 

"There is something reminiscent of Eels' Mark Oliver Everret to McMahon's vocal, and indeed were you to cross Eels with The Band you might have something resembling (album) Shiner." - Beat
