Notts musician releases EP after charity sleep out
NOTTINGHAM musician Frazer Lowrie will tomorrow launch an EP to raise funds for homeless charities.
He was inspired to record the CD after taking part in a sponsored sleep-out, organised by Framework, outside the Capital FM Arena.
"After taking part in the Big Sleep Out event I realised just how ignorant I was about homelessness," says the 20-year-old.
"Before that night I had never really thought of the problems they faced."

Profits from his Brittle Bones EP, which costs £4, will be shared between Emmanuel House, a day centre in the city providing practical assistance to the homeless and Framework, which gives support and training to 9,000 vulnerable people every year.
"I have since visited both of these organisations and seen for myself the great work they do in often challenging circumstances.
"Brittle Bones, which explores my thoughts on what being homeless must be like, has been described as 'gorgeous', 'beautiful' and 'haunting'. Playing the song for the staff at Emmanuel House was a great highlight for me and I was delighted by their response."
Framework's Natalie Goodrich, who organised the Big Sleep Out, says: "Frazer delighted us with his performance at the event and we are so pleased to hear that it had such a profound effect on him that he wished to use his talents to support our work."
The EP will be launched tomorrow at the Jam Cafe in Hockley from 8pm. It will be available to buy on iTunes.
