Come out and see Jessie Frye at 9pm this Friday, Sept 20th!
Jessie Frye has become something of a DFW institution since the release of her debut EP, The Delve, back in 2009. On the strength and reputation of that first collection of songs, she was invited to perform at SXSW that same year and began a round of extended touring with some local musicians whom she knew and had brought together to form a permanent band.
Garnering critic praise from regional press in Fort Worth and Dallas, her work on a follow-up release was quickly started. Fireworks Child, her second EP, was released in 2011, and Frye and her band continued to tour and build on her already considerable fan base, playing festivals and cities across the US. Having shared the stage with artists like Julianna Barwick and Joan As Police Woman (among dozens of others) – and played SXSW every year since 2009, along with repeat appearances at 35 Conferette in Denton – Frye has meticulously honed her gleaming, and at times densely packed, pop aesthetic. She and her band are primed to reach a much larger audience with the release of their debut LP, Obsidian, which is due out sometime later this fall and was funded via Kickstarter campaign.
The way in which the music effortlessly interweaves with her voice without overpowering or drowning out her intimate vocal complexities is a testament to the intuitive interplay between all members of the band. A compelling example of how synth-pop can expand and develop past its bloated mainstream inclinations, “White Heat” is equal parts inclusive campfire storytelling and rafter-reaching pomp. Expect to hear more from Jessie Frye very soon.”
