Jessica Frech, the YouTube sensation with more than 8 million views on her channel, turns dreams into a “Reality” with her independent launch via social media networks. The quirky, pop-folk artist is rewriting the music scene by utilizing her online fan base to not only promote her record, but they also served as its primary investors through Kickstarter.
“I still cannot believe that this whole journey started when I uploaded a funny video called ‘People of Wal-Mart’ to YouTube,” says Jessica. “Just like any other college kid, I wouldn’t have the funds to pursue this avenue and I can’t send enough thanks to those that traveled over to Kickstarter.com to give me a chance at recording a full length project.”
Jessica’s satirical songs, covers and parodies have captured fans around the globe since the release of “People of Wal-Mart,” which was recognized by Break.com as the #1 viral video for 2011. Her videos have landed Jessica features on FOX News, Billboard, ABCNews, MSNBC, G4 “Attack of the Show,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and COSMO radio on SiriusXM.
It seems that Jessica has found the attention of more than just the national media scene as celebrity Kirstie Alley tweeted Jessica Frech’s parody of Katy Perry to her one million followers. Marketing departments are tuning in as well as Hyundai connected with Jessica to write and star in two commercials this holiday season. Also, Pepto-Bismol engaged Jessica for a song for its upcoming campaign. These benchmarks are tell-tale signs that 2012 is going to be an exciting year for this Zooey Deschanel meets Norah Jones star. To stay updated on Jessica, visit the following:
