A Fine Frenzy: Live from the Artists Den
After opening for KT Tunstall during her 2007 performance at the Prince George Ballroom in Manhattan, A Fine Frenzy returned to the Artists Den stage as a headliner in August 2009, two weeks before the release of her second album, Bomb in a Birdcage. The intimate show took place in the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in East Hampton, NY and was announced via Twitter to A Fine Frenzys followers -- which number over one and a half million.
Taken from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, A Fine Frenzy is the name of 24-year-old singer-songwriter Alison Sudol's band. Born in Seattle to dramatic-arts teacher parents, Sudol moved to Los Angeles at the age of five, where she later taught herself to play piano. Her groups debut record, One Cell in the Sea, cracked the Billboard Top 100, earned the #1 spot on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, and garnered her recognition as a VH1 "You Oughta Know" artist. A Fine Frenzy's sophomore album, Bomb in a Birdcage, was released in September 2009.

A FINE FRENZY
"At first glance, singer/songwriter Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy looks delicate fragile, even. But, as her performance at at Guild Hall in East Hampton, N.Y. attests, shes a soulful singer inspired by the greats, ranging from Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong to the Velvet Underground, Talking Heads and Belle & Sebastian."
