A Fine FrenzyI just got info sent to me about the red-haired singer in the season premiere of CSI: NY. She played the singer, Nova Kent, one of the killer’s targets.

I had actually been wondering about her when the message arrived. She’s a good singer. Apparently, her real name is Alison Sudol and she performs under the stage name of “A Fine Frenzy.”

(Follow the jump to find out more about Allison and her latest tour dates.)

Here’s the press release I received:

“CSI NY” TAPS A FINE FRENZY
AKA ALISON SUDOL FOR A ROLE AND PERFORMANCE
IN SEPTEMBER 26th SEASON PREMIERE

A Fine Frenzy Currently On VH1 “You Oughta Know” Tour 2007

Alison Sudol, aka A Fine Frenzy, will make her acting debut on the season opener for “CSI: NY,” which airs Wednesday, September 26th, on CBS. Sudol will also perform two songs: “Almost Lover,” the lead single from One Cell in the Sea, A Fine Frenzy’s debut, and “Last of Days,” another track from the album.

“Almost Lover” is already in the Top 30 at Mainstream AC radio and has been added by AC stations such as WLTW-New York, the most listened to station in the country, and KOST-Los Angeles where it is getting Top 10 airplay at both. The accompanying video, directed by acclaimed indie filmmakers the Brothers Nee, is in large rotation at VH1 and the band is currently on the road with Brandi Carlile for VH1’s “You Oughta Know” Tour 2007. A Fine Frenzy will appear on VH1’s “Top 20 Countdown” on September 29th just prior to the tour’s two nights at New York City’s Fillmore/Irving Plaza (10/3 & 10/4).

Sudol will be featured in Vogue’s December issue and A Fine Frenzy has recorded a searing version of “Fever” (the Peggy Lee classic) for the Dan In Real Life soundtrack, due out October 2nd. She is one of Nokia’s featured artists for September/October and is included in Music Choice’s “Fresh Crops” program for September. [insert AOL “About to Pop” information]

A Fine Frenzy’s One Cell in the Sea debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart earlier this year. The album has scanned over 50,000 units thus far and sales have been increasing each week. The band, which was the first in 2007 to cross over from the new artist chart to Billboard’s Top 100, has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “Last Call with Carson Daly.”

“The melodies on this debut are breathless…imbued with piano swells,” said Entertainment Weekly. “Such attention to the dramatic works wonders on stripped-down tunes like ‘Almost Lover,’ which lets Sudol’s delicate voice take center stage.” The album earned a four-star review from Paste, which found it “bursting with talent” while Harp observed: “A Fine Frenzy is a blend of sounds and influences…..where there’s Ella, Aretha and Louis, there’s also Radiohead, Sigor Ros, Aqualung and Keane.”
