FRASE is a singer, producer & multi-instrumentalist from Montreal.  With authenticity and lyrical finesse, his buttery, soulful voice sits atop lofty grooves that push the boundaries of contemporary electronic music.  

 Since his debut EP “Daggers & Shields” in 2015, he has captured the hearts of music lovers around the world with a sound that is analog and soulful, yet pushes to the future.   With a voice the sounds reminiscent of the intimate,  alternative R&B from the likes of, Mac Miller, and Sampha. Frase pairs it with productions that are more the 4 on the floor rollers of Kaytranada and Disclosure.

Playing Jazz Festivals, back to back with EDM Raves, FRASE is blurring the lines of contemporary music performance. Original songs, mashup and remixes are delivered in a dynamic, up-beat live/hybrid show where Frase sings, plays guitar, or keys and bass all while dj’ing his productions and loops. Amplifying the liveness of the show and making things move is dancer, Embody MVMT.   She is a trained in Contemporary with a decade of experience in street dances: B-Girling, Popping and House. Their love story and dance collaboration began on the subs while opening for Fat Boy Slim, in Florence Italy in 2016 and they have been a power couple on a mission to move people ever since. 

FRASE and Embody MVMT are lighting up crowds at world-class music festivals such as Bass Coast, Kaslo Jazz, Shambhala (4 years running), Pop Montreal, Canadian Music Week, Cumberland Wild and Tiny Lights.  In the past 5 years they have been touring non-stop and have supported and shared the stage with such artists as: Dub Fx, Bonobo, Bedouin Soundclash, Fat Boy Slim, Noisia, Moontricks, The Funk Hunters,  I M U R,  Skiitour, Caracol, & Delhi 2 Dublin.  All over Canada, Italy, Germany, and India.
