A true artist in every sense of the word, Alison Sudol is an immensely talented actress, musician, and individual.

Sudol released 3 studio albums, one live album and 4 EP’s as A Fine Frenzy, and has been featured on the soundtracks of many films.
Alison Sudol has now expanded into exploring many different facets of music including composing, performing and songwriting. On 2 November 2018, Sudol independently released new music under her own name with the ‘Moon’ EP; her first music released in 6 years. The ‘Moon’ EP was released via Hearth, a record label founded by Sudol and longtime manager Adrienne Butcher, as a way to release music that is supportive of the artist. This spring, Sudol will release the highly anticipated follow up EP, ‘Moonlite.’ Both EP’s were co-produced by Ali Chant (Perfume Genius, PJ Harvey) and feature Clive Deamer and Adrian Utley (Portishead) and John Parish (PJ Harvey).
Sudol was recently seen starring in Warner Brothers’ second installment of the Harry Potter prequel franchise, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, released 16 November 2018. She starred alongside Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Ezra Miller, and Johnny Depp. The film follows the adventures of Newt (Redmayne) as he is enlisted by Dumbledore (Law) to thwart Grindelwald’s (Depp) plans of raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings. Sudol reprised her role of Queenie Goldstein, a free-spirited witch who joins Newt on his adventure.

Jackson, Ed Harris and Bradley Whitford. The film, which chronicles Pits’ (Irvine) heroic deeds on the battlefield thirty-four years after his death, will be released in 2019.
Sudol made her television debut in the critically acclaimed, two-time Golden Globe winning Amazon series Transparent, created by Jill Soloway, playing the recurring role of Kaya, an artist and love interest to the role of Josh (played by Jay Duplass).
