"Carol Frazier's impassioned vocals and catchy songwriting along with excellent musicianship and clever arrangements make for quite a discovery. I was playing it over and over right away...As the title say's Life's a Ride - and so is this marvelous debut CD. One of the brightest newcomers to make the scence." Andy O'Leary - KUVO

“Frazier hits all the right points and, more importantly, at the right moments. Continuing the momentum on "One Word," Frazier makes the most of a world music/pop and gospel crossover sound. Performing a cover of the Police's "Walking on the Moon" is a daring proposition, but she holds her own with a whispering and sultry style over a Latin jazz arrangement. Of note is the funky vibe on "Janey Lane," a duet between Steve Amedee and Frazier that is one of the easy highlights to notice. A touch of Celtic-inspired music finishes the record during "It Is Well." The album is sinfully soothing. ~ Jason MacNeil ”

"Carol is a great singer who knows how to get her message across. She has an amazing vocal range and can express herself in a myriad of ways. On her debut recording, "Life's A Ride" Carol has surrounded herself with great musicians like producer/pianist Taylor Mesple and smooth jazz phenom saxophonist/producer Darren Rahn. This CD really swings all the while sending out a uplifting vibe!" -- David Arivett CJA Network

“Singer/lyricist Carol Frazier has assembled a top line group of Colorado's best to join her on Life's A Ride, including saxophonist Nelson Rangell, guitarist Dave Beegle and pianist/composer Taylor Mesple', the latter of whom produced the album and co-wrote most of the original material. The result is a strong presentation of Frazier's versatility both as a performer and composer. Ranging from straight pop to hard swing, but always with a jazzy atmosphere based on both the contributions of the instrumentalists and Frazier's phrasing, this is an album in search of a market - is it AOR? Soft jazz? Straight jazz? Is that a touch of gospel I hear? What is it? In the final analysis, just good music played and sung by talented people. This is as good an argument against the commercial compartmentalization of music as you'll hear this year, and it's better music that you'll find in most of those commercial compartments.”
