far beyond frail prepares for west coast tour in support of new EP, Butterfly Sketches
Los Angeles, CA â€“ June 4, 2007 â€“ Kansas City-based band, far beyond frail , draws listeners near with an irresistible blend of alternative-folk music, poetic lyrics, and stunning female vocals. Formed in 2002 on Martha’s Vineyard, the band’s vocalist Sharlynn Verner and songwriter/guitarist David Cecil are a dynamic duo sharing musical likeness with Aimee Mann, Tori Amos, and Sarah McLachlan.
After two successful independent releasesâ€”their debut, The Vineyard EP and A girl, almost… in 2005â€”far beyond frail is gearing up for their first west coast tour in support of their third EP, Butterfly Sketches. The new EP is an intense look at love, at its most heartbreaking and uplifting. Recorded in Cincinnati, Ohio and produced by Grammy-nominated producer Ric Hordinski (Over the Rhine, David Wilcox), this collection of songs represents the band’s most impressive work to date.
On June 5, Butterfly Sketches will be available for purchase on the far beyond frail web site, www.farbeyondfrail.com. To coincide with the start of the tour, the EP will be available [Amazon] beginning June 15.
