David Fraser...reason and album from Californian singer/songwriter and keyboardist

David Fraser is a professional musician (keyboards, harmonica, accordion), singer and songwriter with roots based in Blues, R'n'B, Classic Rock, and Country music. He is a native of California and calls Los Angeles his home. His soulful presentation always pleases crowds who hear him perform both internationally and throughout the US. 

David has a very soulful and expressive voice reflecting his lyrical ideas with a wide variety of musical styles. Co-produced along with fellow musicians Nick Kirgo and Debra Dobkin, and including bassist Mark Goldberg, “Reason & Rhyme” delivers a rich tapestry of songs with striking results. “River Of Tears” and “Get You Off My Mind” are both unique bluesy expressions of love gone wrong. “Jolie Coeur”, and “Let’s Dance” reflect celebrations of life with a Southwestern Louisiana flavor. “The Clock” and “For A Million Years” give us a bit more cynical perspective. “Dad Said”, is a poignant tribute to a father’s love, while “The Right Way” contributes a little fun and sensuous humor. “When The Rain Comes Down” and “Good Friends” are both heartfelt and uplifting. All these songs are very up close and personal. Fraser’s harmonica and accordion playing, combined with lively contributions courtesy of his many talented friends, are welcome icing on the cake. 

For over ten years, He delighted Disney audiences of all ages, working in stage shows throughout the park, and in numerous venues at the Disneyland Hotel. David also played concert tours opening for well-known artists such as the Beach Boys, Tower of Power, Journey and Glen Campbell and performed in concert with Johnny Rivers and The Blues Brothers.

His musical heritage and roots may well come from a deep love for early blues and country artists….originators, who not only helped inspire his career, but also paved the way for others of his respected favorites such as Ray Charles, Randy Newman, James Brown, Delbert McClinton, and Allen Toussaint.
