Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ANDY FRASCO AND THE U.N.

Half A Man

2014-06-09

  Andy Frasco is a keyboard player from California. He is only 24 years old and already, Half A Man is his fourth album. Calling his musical style "party blues", Andy Frasco mixes his blues with gospel ("Sunny Day Soldier"), soul ("Main Squeeze"), country ("Pay to See You Smile"), folk ("All of My Friends") and reggae (the last hidden track).  The songs, featuring organ, occasional horns, and Frasco's sometimes growly, sometimes soulful vocals are light and fun.    Rebecca Ruth
