This Week’s Surprise Discovery – Allysen Callery

Allysen Callery

I’m showing up fashionably late to the party that is Allysen Callery (unlike a real party, where I normally show up an hour before the other guests and sit in a corner quietly contemplating the dip selection).
Allysen’s first album, ‘Hopey’ is properly amazing. I hear shades of Diane Cluck, Sandy Denny, Cat Power and a bunch of other great stuff that makes me swoon a bit. If you like any of those ladies you should obtain this album immediately.
Allysen Callery is from Rhode Island. So far I think she has only played shows in America, but she has already got airplay on Folk Radio UK and WFMU which is a pretty good measure of quality music.
I don’t know if she will ever play a show for us here in Brighton. I hope so, but mainly I’m just trying to spread the love for some great music.
