I don't really listen to music on the radio and only very occasionally watch Vh1, and therefore have no idea what's playing these days, so forgive me if you've all heard of A Fine Frenzy. I just discovered her and she is great. Jared has been listening to her album practitcally non-stop the past few days whilst working on his thesis.
A Fine Frenzy is actually just 22-year-old Allison Sudol. She is a self-taught pianist/singer/songwriter. Her songs have catchy melodies and great lyrics. Check out her website and watch the "Almost Lover" video, and I think you might get hooked too.
