Singing the unspeakable, sharing her light


Allison Russell has walked through shadows. Her extraordinary gift of songcraft speaks to a powerful reclamation of self; her words conjure joy from pain, defiant strength and love in the face of overwhelming darkness. Having been compared to Nina Simone and Edith Piaf, Russell, too, roars with dignity and hope. Yet this Grammy-nominated artist’s cathartic and soulful voice is squarely her own, a voice that can “carry a story of tremendous weight and command the spotlight in the revelatory telling of it” (NPR).
