Layla Frankel: Tame The Fox

Tame The Fox is the debut EP from Chicago singer/songwriter Layla Frankel. The six tracks are spirited folk-rock with tight harmonies, catchy songs, understated instrumentals and loads of Frankel's wonderfully expressive voice. With leanings from blues to jazz, this EP is a singular showcase of the artist's writing and vocal chops, with all else placed to enhance appearance like a chef plates an entree. Evocative, intimate and thoroughly enjoyable, is what the listener can expect. This is the type of artist one might find on the new incarnation of A Prairie Home Companion, rather than a work in step with current indie genres. Stream and buy Tame The Fox at the link below.
