Jessie formed her band when she received an official invitation to showcase at South By Southwest 2009. She has been nominated for several local music awards including best female vocalist and best solo act by The Dallas Observer and Ft. Worth Weekly. Her influences are Tori Amos, The Cure and Ryan Adams.

“Innocence and old soul. Fiery, then cool. Reluctant and, all at once, beguiling. Frye carries an intense passion and delivery in her voice that is well beyond her years…Fryes latest EP, Fireworks Child, is a distinctive and eclectic mix of emotional opposites mercurial and impetuous, yet intimate and constantly drawing you in.” -Laurie Gallardo, KUT Austin

“…little will stop her from releasing a wonderfully potent full-length. Or from altogether blossoming into a full-fledged monster in the pop world.” -Dallas Observer
