Lily Frost And Her Kelvinators –“Leave My Man Alone” (Aporia Records): To this observer, Lily Frost is one of the most under-rated Canadian singer/songwriters around. The prolific artist (12 albums to her credit) has worked in country swing, jazz, rockabilly, francophone pop, rock, r ‘n b and cabaret styles, with equal finesse. Frost and her ace band Her Kelvinators are planning to release a single every month, culminating in a full album.
Recent cut "Witchdoctor" was a spooky delight, and this new track is equally strong. Co-written by Frost and guitarist Nicol Robertson, it has a retro vibe and features punchy horns, resonant guitar and cool backing vocals by Ted Hawkins. A winner. We can’t wait to hear more.
Frost plays Orillia Jazz Fest on Oct. 5.
