“…like impressionistic poetry, witty wordplay, music that is intimate and universal.”

I am inspired and drawn to create songs that are lyrical and evocative, which summon questions of the spirit and of the human condition.
My music explores personal, topical, political and spiritual landscapes. They can be humorous, tragic, joyful, ironic, beautiful and not so beautiful. It’s poetry, folk, jazz, rock, spoken word, rap — it is ancient and postmodern.
My deepest hope is for you to find your own space within the songs and inhabit them. May they resonate for you and may you visit often.
Her music is indelibly buoyant, in all of its shades of light and dark, as is the testimony of her lyrics.
“Random Days” is a dynamic collection that stirs the mind and heart and is sure to warm your soul.
Eight of the 11 selections are her own compositions.
The joyous exultation of the collection’s title track Random Days with lyrics and music that sparkles; the edgy Marusa; the deeply personal Dreamchild — ballads that are held together musically through excellent production and bold instrumentation notably the empathetic interplay of longtime collaborator-producer, guitarist Jim Woodyard.
Of the covers, she surprises us (opening with a lick reminiscent of Bill Withers' Use Me) with a heart-stopping interpretation of Murray Head's Never Even Thought. Frost gives a wonderfully nuanced interpretation of the Mark Knopfler gem Romeo and Juliet while her homage to the George Harrison modern classic While My Guitar Gently Weeps is safe in her hands. She inhabits these songs with passion and respect owning them with the same compassion and intelligence present in her own work.
Frost’s music has been featured on CBC-Radio AM & FM, CITR, CKNW and College Radio stations across Canada. Harriet has performed all over the Lower Mainland and at music festivals.
