Far Beyond Frail

If Tori Amos sat down and covered Counting Crows songs, you would hear something similar to Kansas City’s far beyond frail – an alternative-pop duo composed of vocalist Sharlynn Verner and songwriter David Cecil. Formed in 2002 on Martha’s Vineyard, a small island off the coast of Cape Cod, far beyond frail combines edgy love songs with stunning female vocals, creating music that ranges from breathy and playful to moody and daring.

If Tori Amos sat down and covered Counting Crows songs, you would hear something similar to Kansas City’s far beyond frail – an alternative-pop duo composed of vocalist Sharlynn Verner and songwriter David Cecil. Formed in 2002 on Martha’s Vineyard, a small island off the coast of Cape Cod, far beyond frail combines edgy love songs with stunning female vocals, creating music that ranges from breathy and playful to moody and daring.

“Empty City Nights,” their latest album, is an intimate portrait of urban life, love and loneliness. Recorded on one microphone for only $200, it is presented as glimpses into the lives of different people during one “empty city night.” It is the kind of stripped back, raw, and emotional album that fans of far beyond frail’s live shows and earlier EP’s have been waiting for years to hear.

“The album was inspired by the view from my loft in downtown Kansas City. I’d be looking out my window late at night, see a handful of lights on, and wonder what might be happening in those apartments,” says far beyond frail guitarist and songwriter David Cecil. Sharlynn Verner, the band’s vocalist adds, “It’s kind of a reflection on how isolated city life can feel, even though you’re in such close proximity to so many people going through the same things.” « hide
