Rebecca Frazier gained fame as the first woman on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, and has since become known as “a genuine triple threat as singer, songwriter, and flatpicking guitarist” (Nashville Scene). In 2017, Paste Magazine included Frazier in its piece titled “7 Women Smashing the Bluegrass Glass Ceiling.” Frazier was the first woman to be nominated for Guitar Player of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) in 2018, and she was nominated again in 2019.

Frazier is widely known for her work with award-winning Colorado-based bluegrass outfit Hit & Run. The only band to win all three Rockygrass, Telluride, and SPBGMA Festival Band competitions, this successful touring act has graced stages of prestigious festivals and venues in 42 states and Canada, and eventually migrated to Nashville in 2007 with two studio albums under their belts.

After experiencing the loss of a child in 2010 and a subsequent break from touring, Frazier focused solely on her writing for two years. The result is her transparent most recent Compass Records release, “When We Fall,” which reached No. 3 on the Roots Music Report National Bluegrass Chart, No. 6 on the Bluegrass Today Monthly Chart, and garnered praise as the “Best Bluegrass Album of 2013” by Bluegrass Situation. Nashville journalist Craig Havighurst dubbed Rebecca Frazier “East Nashville real deal bluegrass.”
