Brandie Carlile/ Fine Frenzy tour

A Fine Frenzy and Brandi Carlile are touring together for the Vh1 "You Oughta Know" tour. You really oughta know about these girls, both are brilliant, if you're in any of these cities check them out.

Last spring, VH1 expanded its successful "You Oughta Know" new music promotion franchise to concert halls across the country with its first-ever "You Oughta Know" tour featuring Mat Kearney and special guests The Feeling and Rocco DeLuca & The Burden. The tour was a hit and VH1 is proud to give the ladies a turn this time with the second YOK tour featuring Brandi Carlile with special guest A Fine Frenzy.

A Fine Frenzy is the music of 22 year-old Alison Sudol. Born in Seattle to dramatic-arts teacher parents, she developed a strong love for the fantastic literary worlds of CS Lewis, Charles Dickens and others, while becoming a passionate author in her own right. She immersed herself in classical music, Motown, Aretha Franklin, swing bands, Ella Fitzgerald, Elton John, Louis Armstrong, the Beatles, Technicolor movies and classic 1950's television. After teaching herself to play piano, she found solace in the new global British bands Aqualung, Radiohead, Coldplay and Keane, etc... She was also moved by the diatonic minimalism of Philip Glass and the transportive allure of Icelandic music (Bjork, Sigur Ros.) Inspired, Alison developed the sound of A Fine Frenzy - hypnotic piano arrangements under classic American melody fused into irresistible, atmospheric songs with the power to reach around the world.

Down Time

About The Music may be a little quiet for a while. You see, I'm getting married. When I get back from honeymoon and get an internet connection we'll be back, but until then kick back and relax with some time off.

Here's some news to keep you going:

Here is "Big Old House" performed by Bright Eyes from The Hottest State soundtrack:
