Jessie Frye

"...a robust, versatile voice that she showcases with a wide-ranging pop sensibility." -The Wall Street Journal

Garnering the attention and support of The New York Times with her performance at SXSW in 2012, she used this national spotlight to tour throughout Texas that year and the Midwest the following year. Frye once again found success through her fans when her debut LP, Obsidian, was crowd sourced through Kickstarter. Obsidian made several Best of 2014 lists as well as the music video for Shape of a Boy featured in the Dallas Observer's best videos of 2014.

She has opened for bands such as Beck, Pat Benatar, Chvrches, Julianna Barwick, The Avett Brothers and Joan As Police Woman—though that is only a short list of artists with whom she’s shared a stage. Her energetic live shows and penchant for musical inclusivity also earned her the top spot in a fan-voted contest to see who would open Edgefest 24 in Frisco, TX . But Frye isn’t simply rehashing the past onstage; she is currently in the process of writing and recording new material, which will find her mining the same heartfelt and emotionally absorbing territory that fans have come to expect from the ferocious singer.
