Arlington Singer/Songwriter Jessie Frye: "I'm Playing SXSW, Too!"
"I think I am the only artist that is invited who is from Arlington," says Frye. "I'm playing March 19 at midnight. The venue is the 18th floor at The Hilton Garden Inn, a very snazzy place."
Snazzy is the appropriate term, both for the venue and Frye's music. Incorporating her classical training into her modern pop compositions, Frye has found an interesting niche between Carole King and Tori Amos. Songs like "Birthmark (Chicago)" and "Fool's Gold" are intricately arranged and exceedingly well played examples of smart pop.
