Fraser A. Gorman grew up in a small surf town on Melbourne’s southern coast. Growing up surrounded by surf culture, Gorman quickly strayed away and looked to the songs of Bob Dylan and early 60's Rock’n’Roll.

With his love for country, blues, and folk, he started a solo project writing songs with a laid-back, storytelling style. In 2015 he released his first full length album, Slow Gum, receiving critical acclaim across the globe including mass praise in Uncut, Mojo and Rolling Stone.

Gorman toured the world three times before settling back in Melbourne to work as a carpenter and contemplate existence.

Now the break is over, and his sophomore album, Easy Dazy, is out featuring guest musicians Leah Senior, Anika Ostendorf (Hachiku) and Hollie Joyce and members of King Gizzard.

Gorman's songwriting builds around his ability to convey his life, hopes, and fears openly with sun-drenched tones and lyrical wit. Sonically, the album has a warm and timeless feel. Taking a slight step away from the country folk vibes of his previous releases, Easy Dazy is more laid-back Americana with a driving pop sensibility. Tasteful horn arrangements sprinkled on a few tracks evoke the vibe of contemporary blue-eyed soul and the lush background vocals evoke the sound somewhere between Transformer era Lou Reed and Bill Fay's Omega Day.
