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.

Just like i mentioned in the opening line, his voice is so high compared to my expectations. Considering it was regarded as a "soul" album and the fact he looks like a giant man made ... read more

I don't know why I looked at the cover and thought his voice was deep??? The first shock of first listen, the smoothness of Aaron Frazer is quite delicious. As much as we've heard something like this record a thousand times before, this body of work seems so particular. As the title implies, this introduction is well received, for my part (at least).

This is just a great sounding soul record. The production is great, the songwriting is solid, and Aaron Frazer has a great voice for this sound. Yeah it’s a little long, and nothing on here is anything I haven’t necessarily heard before, but it’s really well executed and makes this a very enjoyable listen.

Honestly not a huge fan of this guy's constant falsetto but this was a pleasant listen. Shout out Dan Auerbach for the production!

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

An excellent debut showing from drummer turned vocalist Aaron Frazer. This album features production from the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and takes a journey through many different styles of vintage soul instrumentals. From the 50s to the 70s and from the US to Northern England, the production is massively varied but it is Frazer's voice that is the real highlight. His range is incredible and the best tracks here are ... read more

Great and unexpected retro soul with a very vintage instrumentals and melodies that will stick in your head. Very nice production as well by Dan Auerbach. I just kind of whish what he would be a little more varied with his voice as he is always going for that falsetto. Overall, very enjoyable and I expect to give some more listens in the future.

É um álbum muito bom de estreia. As letras são bem básicas porém a sonoridade Soul do disco e os vocais do cantor estão muito bons.

Aaron Frazer debut sees a more modern take on some old school soul, such as Chicago Soul, Motown and Smooth soul all blended into a modern pop soundscape with some crystal clean production and with a nice variety of styles the album has a lot to offer and Aaron Frazer's vocals are impressive to say the least, however I do wish for more tightening songwriting many tracks although lush on the ears doesn't resonate as much as they could and mainly stick with quite accessible lyrics most likely in ... read more

A simple soul record topped with a fantastic nasally vocal inflection, what's not to love?

"The main characteristic of the album is its style and sound. Introducing… counts as influences mainly from rock and blues, in addition to hints of modern r&b. What makes this something really striking is the fact that this very interesting mixture seems something very faded nowadays. It is difficult to look at the Frazer’s face on the album cover, for example, and think that this album would have such a characteristic sound. Undoubtedly, perhaps, when you look at ... read more

A drummer by trade, Aaron Frazer turns to soulful tunes on his solo debut ‘Introducing...’ which feels like he’s trying to go for music for ‘Chill’ and ‘Study’ Spotify playlists. And it works, because this feels very ‘aesthetic’ but also genuine and polished and full of character as well. However, it’s not musically very interesting or innovative, which means it’s harder to see past it’s ‘made for purpose sad girl ... read more

Drummer/ vocalist of the band Durand Jones and the Indications Aaron Frazer has been influenced heavily by the feeling of 60s soul and Motown. On this album he is working with Producer/ member of The Black Keys Dan Auerbach. Aaron Frazer's last album he did with Durand Jones and the Implications "American Love Call", had a really nice nostalgic feel to it, but didn't really leave me hooked or interested throughout the record and after listening to this new album by Aaron Frazer four ... read more

Introducing ... é um disco focado no soul de um jeito bem legal com várias músicas legais nesse estilo mas isso acaba sendo repetitivo algumas saem um pouco disso mas no geral bem parecido mas op que importa que a maioria é boa

The formula is basic but catchy, it's a cohesive album from start to finish, with simple lyrics but with a good vocal performance.

This was a pretty good project. At some points throughout the project, it got a little slow and boring, especially on the track 'Have Mercy". However, towards the end, it started picking up speed and becoming more interesting. The project as a whole sticks to the same theme and style, which works for it in the end. It manages to stay interesting throughout minus one or two off moments. Overall, this project could be improved with maybe one less song, and Frazer could have added some ... read more

This is one hell of a unique voice.

Very good debut album all around. Straightforward soul melodies with a little bit of pop flavour. Looking forward to hearing what's next from him.

Pretty standard, slow-paced soul album, musically it's also not really adventurous, and led by a decent, but very high-pitched Frazer's voice, it feels like it's going for hours.

Based on the reviews I went into this thinking it’d be mediocre at best but I actually really enjoyed this. I do not mind high falsettos.
