The wild Highlands of Scotland have produced more than just whiskey and the Loch Ness Monster. Frazer Kennedy is also a product of that mighty land. His philosophical outlook on life has been forged from his upbringing in that mountainous region. His music could be best described as acoustic singer songwriter with a blend of world rhythms that has developed over recent years to encompass a bigger electric sound. Frazer has been writing and performing music for over 25 years the Roots are in Scotland with Branches reaching everywhere.
The broad appeal of his music has led to invitations to perform live in Clubs and Festivals across Europe, Asia and The Americas and also on a variety of Radio Stations. After many years of writing and performing his own material, Frazer is currently enjoying musical collaboration’s with other Artists.
Yesterday’s Gone” the flagship single taken from the debut album “Yesterday’s gone” of the same title joyously this track has reached # number One position in the Uk's Independent Unsigned Music Chart!

Peter Stevenson

Music Maker Magazine
Yesterday’s Gone is Frazer Kennedy’s debut recording - an album of ten original songs, with the title track and its reprise bookending proceedings. A singer-songwriter/guitarist whose roots are undoubtedly acoustic, undeniably folky and often betraying a Highland heritage - Frazer’s voice is rich with Scottish intonation and a strength and power permeates through all of the songs.

Here is a collection of resonant observations and atmospheric tales, crafted from the uncertainty of life’s trials and tribulations. The songs might work as well as simple acoustic incarnations but here they are presented in their evolved state - fully formed and attractively fleshed out. Frazer has wisely coloured each and every one and the attendant friends and musicians with their sympathetic input, has helped to bring out the melodies whilst adding depth and decoration.

It’s hard to select a song for special attention when consistency is the order of the day. The title track has been receiving the plaudits elsewhere but Street of Dreams was my personal favourite and perhaps best typifies Frazer’s thoughtful approach. It might just be his best song, where the instrumental interplay between harmonica and electric guitar allows room for breath between the verses.

Frazer’s songs have a mature assurance and often reveal an ear for a catchy tune and refrain. On the evidence of this recording, he’s also a musician deserving of wider recognition and perhaps it’s just a matter of time.

Yesterday's gone Von Frazer Kennedy (German Review)
YESTERDAY’S GONE von Frazer Kennedy – eine brilliante Kollektion balladig-rockiger aber auch durch Schottische Musikelemente beinflusstes Werk.
Frazer bringt in einfühlsamer Weise Stimmungen zum Ausdruck, die sich mit der Liebe und der Sehnsucht befassen.
Seine Weltoffenheit kommt mittels weltmusikalischer Elemente in seinen Melodien deutlich heraus.
Besonders überzeugend ist jedoch seine Bodenständigkeit, die sich durch den unverfälschten Klang seiner 6-seitigen Akkustikgitarre abzeichnet.
Die CD YESTERDAY’S GONE ist eine Einladung zum Träumen, sie lässt den Alltagsstress verschwinden. Zudem bietet sie dem geneigten Hörer zahllose Bilder, die sich beim Genießen der musikalischen Darbietungen unweigerlich einstellen.
Das Album ist ein Juwel für jeden Liebhaber von handgemachter Musik, authentischer Klänge und einer unvergleichlichen Stimme mit Tiefgang.
Frazer vereint Emotionen, variiert Nuancen und gewinnt die Herzen im Nu durch seine Bodenständigkeit und Natürlichkeit.

YESTERDAY’S GONE ist eine weltumspannende Freundschafterklärung !

A Gem From Scotland
Yesterday's Gone is a perfectly-pitched mix of folk and blues, country and soul, an album that takes the sweetest from all those genres and offers an indie delight that stands out proud in an age of bull and hype. Production is perfect, complementing but never obscuring the catchy melodic structures that give the album instant appeal. Scotland hasn't produced a singer-songwriter as good as this since Al Stewart!
The choppy rhythmic hook of the title track is threaded with soulful brass harmonies that reach out to a nostalgic yearning in all of us, eventually fading out with a cheerful whistle that kind of reminds us all to soldier on anyway. Exquisite!
Humour and nostalgia and romance walk hand in hand through Kennedy's lyrics - through the lovely Whispering Rain and along the winding road that leads to Alice. But the man's from Scotland after all, and it's no surprise that some of the songs are proudly tinged with magic and legend from the Highlands, from the lovely imagery of Moonbeam Castle to the exorcist cries of Damn You All.
It's hard to find a weak track on Yesterday's Gone, but it has to be said that Street of Dreams must rank alongside the title track as a winner. In those long gone days when music suits knew what they were doing, this would surely have been released as a stand-out single, been given lots of airplay and brought a fresh talent to everyone's attention.
Maybe things don't work that way anymore. Yesterday's Gone - perhaps - but Frazer Kennedy is a talent that should give us hope for tomorrow.
