Harriet Frost is a Vancouver-based independent singer songwriter. Strikingly original in her song writing, her listeners find themselves captivated by her commanding voice and distinctive melodic sensibility. Rooted in a folk rock tradition she invites shades of gypsy jazz and pop underpinnings into the mix. Frost's music explores political landscapes, personal dreamscapes and life's panoply of disappointments and joys. Harriet’s musical journey began in Montreal where she wrote and performed throughout her high school and college years. A pivotal move to Israel brought her to the international stage where she had the opportunity to work with various artists staging shows to promote peace in Israeli and Palestinian communities. Vancouver is home where while raising a family, she continues to compose and perform her eclectic fusion of folk inspired music. Working with Vancouver’s most notable musicians, Harriet's critically acclaimed CD Random Days can be heard on CBC AM and FM Radio and public & college radio stations across North America.
Word Whips are presented by the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery in collaboration with Pandora’s Collective.
