Fraser A. Gorman. A 23 year old kid who looks like a teenage Bob Dylan, a full time carpenter obsessed with the history of rock n’ roll, expressing himself through wry poetry, bent tropicalia, country-soul and rock. After playing a flawless series of shows at SXSW 2015 and tearing apart an opening slot for best mate Courtney Barnett and Bully throughout sold-out UK tours in March and April, he’s now NME approved, hotly tipped by BBC’s Radio 6 and Radio 1 and signed to an international label deal with Marathon Artists (Jagwar Ma, Courtney Barnett, Childhood).
Add to that the fact he’s an active part of the small but amazing DIY collective Milk! Records (run by Barnett and Jen Cloher) and the endorsements of his skill as a writer and musician are ringing loud all over the world. Now, Fraser Alexander Gorman’s collection of cool-as-fuck, funny, heartfelt and super-infectious tunes has come to fruition on his debut album titled Slow Gum. His live shows have grown in a short time from intimate to majestic. Fraser’s built an enviable support-slot CV over the past year featuring such diverse yet prestigious names as Damon Albarn, Wanda Jackson, Guy Clark Jr, Justin Townes Earle, CW Stoneking, and his buddies You Am I.
