“Her abstract poetry mixed with a literal mind is just unbelievable…this is one of the best conceptual albums I’ve ever heard” – Brandi Carlile
With Outside Child, which was No. 2 on The New York Times’ best albums of 2021 list, Allison Russell joins the charmed inner circle of soul music immortals. Nominated for three Grammy Awards and three Americana Music Association awards, her debut album is hailed for its suite of courageous, truthful and joyous songs. Also a member of Birds of Chicago (with JT Nero) and Our Native Daughters (with Rhiannon Giddens, Amythyst Kiah and Layla McCalla), this extraordinary artist stands proudly on the verge of inevitable and lasting stardom.
