Based in Oxford, UK, Fraser Broadfoot takes inspiration from the likes of Elton John, and Passenger, for his new 5 track EP, ‘Be My Valentine’.
With gentle vocals accompanied by mellow guitars, and soft piano, Fraser has put together what’s possibly the perfect Valentine’s record, with immensely relatable, story-telling lyrics.
Fraser is no newcomer to music, having been writing songs for more than a decade, and he’s certainly got a knack for crafting heartfelt songs. The first and title track is especially poignant, and it becomes clear why when you learn he originally wrote it for his wife, on one of their first Valentine’s Days.
There’s a tender peace to Broadfoot’s music, which exudes a feeling of love. His debut album, ‘A Place Where I Can Be’, was released in 2005 as a work of passion, while he worked as a vet. He was further inspired to make more music during lockdown, resulting in his second album, ‘Sea Of Change’, released last year.
The new EP includes some reworkings of songs from his previous releases, as well as ‘Be My Valentine’, which was originally found on ‘Sea Of Change’.
‘Be My Valentine’ is out now, and can be streamed and downloaded here. You can find out more about Fraser Broadfoot and his music online on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Soundcloud, Spotify, and Apple Music.
