Francesca De Fazi is an Italian Rome-based singer-songwriter and guitarist. She has collaborated with artists such as Scott Henderson, Stefano Di Battista, Marcello Rosa, Andy J. Forest, Roberto Ciotti, Louisiana Red, Taj Mahal, Rory Block and many more. She just released a new full-length.
Craft Songs is out today via Carlo Barbagallo imprint Noja Recordings. She describes the 11 tracks of “Craft Songs” as being “tied together with water, tears, sea, whiskey, rain, blood and amniotic fluid.”
Three days ago we shared the full streaming of the album. Today we are glad to premiere the official video of the track “Post Partum Blues“. It was directed by Elaine Carmen Buonsangue. Watch it below.
The album Craft Songs took its shape within the Rubedo Recordings Studio; a few days days in which the artist has arranged and recorded live all the songs on the album, written throughout her career, together with the musicians gathered by producer Carlo Barbagallo: Manuel Volpe (Rubedo’s studio owner) on bass, Simone Pozzi on drums, Nicola Meloni on keyboards, the very young Tom Newton on harmonica and the same Barbagallo on guitars together with De Fazi. The video is strictly live, immortalizing one take of “Post Partum Blues” from those sessions; a crooked and emotional soul blues ballad guided by the indomitable front-woman performance personality, enriched by the unique style of the backing band.
