About the only quibble you'll have is with the title. Music this soulful should need no introduction.

American Songwriter

He has released one of the early contenders for finest debut of 2021. The appropriately titled Introducing… justifies the spotlight status he clearly deserves.


ll too often, this type of record can become bogged down by its own reverence for the period it seeks to re-create, but on Introducing..., Frazer manages to overcome the vintage doldrums with good songwriting and top-notch arrangements.

Under The Radar
Frazer steps out of the shadow of earlier era giants to stand alongside them, shoulder to shoulder.

It’s a thin line between deep respect and fetishism and Frazer’s debut is on the right side, a quality love letter to the music he committed to early on.

Sometimes looks are deceiving.

"Introducing..." Is Aaron Frazer's debut album and one of the more enjoyable releases of the week. The lovey dovie project has a really authentic soulish charm to it and a lot of good moments, backed up by a solid consistency of quality and cute lyrical content.

On Aaron's Frazer's 'Introducing...', he tries his hand at pop soul with pleasant and relaxing results, but by the time it's over, you can't help but feel like you've just heard some cool ideas dragged out for 40+ minutes, it gets quite tiring and monotonous by the time it's over. This project's certainly well produced, but Aaron repeats himself a bit too much, his high-pitched nasally vocals are cute, but hearing this vocal inflection performed almost identically throughout wasn't all that ... read more
