DALLAS FRASCA (VIC)
DALLAS FRASCA (VIC) DUO
Gutsy slide blues and vocals

Triple JJJ airplay, now a leading star on music festival circuit, she has one gutsy voice (reminiscient of Janis Joplin), a tearing rhythm on slide guitar accompanied by Jeffrey's riffs on mandolin and guitar. Her music is mesmerising, empowering and lifts an audience to its feet as she takes her slide blues into the popular music realm.. providing the perfect crossover.
You can walk into a Dallas gig suffering a fit of the blue devils and then there is something about her voice- the way she is a mix of optimism and realism- the blend of raunch and humour- that makes it all alright. Better than alright! Her debut solo EP, Acoustic Slide Groove she had no idea she would be winner of JJJ’s ‘Light Your Fuse’ comp. in March this year (with over 500 entries Australia wide) nominated as a finalist for APRA’s prestigious Professional Development Award, 2006, support Xavier Rudd on his recent national tour April , and then in May, short-listed for the John Butler (JB Seed) grant with two of her songs hitting #1 on MP3.com.
