A Fine Frenzy on Cover of Guitar Center Publication

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 31, 2009) — Yamaha artist Alison Sudol, the voice and music behind A Fine Frenzy, scored the cover of Guitar Center's Buyers Guide publication for the month of April. Guitar Center catalog subscribers will receive a copy in the mail, or it can be viewed online at Guitar Center's website by clicking on "View Our Catalogs" at the bottom of the site.

The article takes readers behind the scenes with the indie rock phenom to learn what inspires her, when she learned her first instrument, and what she likes about Yamaha instruments.

"I love Yamaha pianos," she raves in the article. "I've played a lot of different pianos that I like, but not the way I love my Yamaha pianos. At home I have a Yamaha upright that has the most incredible sound…Yamaha pianos are really well made and they have great tone."

On the road, Alison plays a CP33 88-key stage piano, which she loves for its ease of use and great weighted action.

"Tuning an acoustic piano and setting up microphones can be a hassle on stage," Alison says. "The CP33 is a great solution on the road."

A "You Oughta Know" artist status as declared by VH1, tours with Rufus Wainwright and Brandi Carlile as well as airtime on TV shows such as Gilmore Girls and One Tree Hill all helped propel A Fine Frenzy's debut album One Cell in the Sea into the limelight.

Alison is currently wrapping completion of her follow-up album, which is set for release this August. In addition to beginning a promotional tour for the album, she will also make some stops in Europe for a few festivals in July, and she is looking forward to the publication of her first book.
