Jessie Frye Performs Thursday Night at the Mohawk
They are seemingly contradictory terms, yet they all describe the soundscape of songwriter Jessie Frye. 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. The 22-year-old musician, based in Denton, TX, formed her first band in 2009 after receiving an invitation to play at South By Southwest, and that same year, she opened for Pat Benatar at the House of Blues in Dallas.
Frye’s latest EP, Fireworks Child, is a distinctive and eclectic mix of emotional opposites – mercurial and impetuous, yet intimate and constantly drawing you in.
