What Does Optimism Look Like? — A Conversation with Jerry David DeCicca

Last fall, Jerry David DeCicca delivered a country-kissed jewel of a folk rock record that celebrated the melancholia and quiet joys in life. The Unlikely Optimist & His Domestic Adventures is colored by subtle emotions and the sharpness of unflinching reality, while sonically, it’s a melting pot of Texas’ diverse musical heritage. Throughout the album’sContinue reading “What Does Optimism Look Like? — A Conversation with Jerry David DeCicca”

Allysen Callery – Ghost Folk

If a cool autumn breeze could sing, it would likely sound like Allysen Callery’s elegantly wistful Ghost Folk LP. Hailing from Bristol, RI, Callery plays elemental folk music that feels alive with the landscape of rustic New England. The spirits of ancient seaside farmsteads, crumbling colonial graveyards and deserted craggy shores inhabit each song. InContinue reading “Allysen Callery – Ghost Folk”
