"Jessie Frye is a fascinating study in contrasts. On record, she's deceptively demure, purring into the microphone in a husky, come-hither voice. In concert, she's a perspiring, kinetic wreck, unable to stay seated at her piano for very long, often appearing to teeter on the edge of a complete nervous breakdown. Either way, Frye is in total control, conveying her intimate compositions with skill, placing her at the forefront of area songstresses.

Frye has been steadily playing around town and at South by Southwest over the last three years, landing opening slots for high-profile shows such as Pat Benatar and Joan as Police Woman. Fireworks Child is just the sort of appetizer the unconverted need as motivation: Become intrigued by the stylish, richly observed songs on record and fall completely head over heels in concert. Provided she maintains her relentless work ethic and continues composing songs that reward repeated listens, Frye is bound for big things."

Track Name: Like a Light
hello the morning says
right on time
and i'm not feeling so well
it must be the strange

but i keep dreaming
that i am running late
a mouth full of words
but nothing good to say

like a light
from a star
let the magic in your heart
set you apart

don't believe them when they tell you
that we're the same
'cause the beauty of it all is
is that we're not

well i've been playing
hide and seek with fate
i've been over the hills and
far far away

i heard that you've been waiting on change
to come
maybe a haircut or an airplane
ticket to london

is it warm inside
or tired and fake?

let the magic in your heart
set you apart
you've come so far
don't you let yourself down

oh, you are a light
so let yourself shine
Track Name: Prepared
i'm a wilting flower
for your love
and it's the waking hour
but i'm not waking up

you better be prepared
he speaks to me in sign language
but my eyes are shut

people fall but they get right up
so just get right up

too many windows and not
enough doors
but outside my sunshine is
brighter than yours

but who are you to say,
to take it all away?
people fall but they get right up

today is the kinda day you question
meaning in things
you don't fall behind, you know, you just...
fall in between
but sir, i am in bloom

i've got better things to do
than listen to you
people fall but they get right up
so just get right up
