ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Allysen Callery's debut studio album "HOPEY" was chosen one of the "Top Local CDs of 2007" by The Providence Phoenix



HOPEY- The PROVIDENCE PHOENIX says: "There's something magical about Allysen Callery's new album. It has a dreamy quality that feels mysterious and bewitching. The opening tune, "Feathercap," sounds somewhat like Sandy Denny, with a subtle soprano sweetness. In fact, a British folk influence permeates Hopey.
Allysen's acoustic guitar sits in a pocket well behind her vocals with muted tones, and the delicate accompaniment is haunting in the frailest way, as if Allysen is afraid that any noise might disrupt the mood.

But it's the ambient nature of this recording that distinguishes it from others in the genre and it's the only acoustic album since I started writing this column that invokes such haunting British spirits."
~Bob Gulla/THE PROVIDENCE PHOENIX September 2007

" Pick any song and you will enjoy some sweet sadness, soft smiles, and a wonderful glimpse of sunshine.
Perfect music for a drive through the desert, or in my case a lazy afternoon in a sunlit lounge."~Simon Lewis/
TERRASCOPE(UK)/reveiw of Hopey March 2008



"The lyrics are conscious with gentle analyses of the environmental appearances and reactions of people, also on stage, or recalling moments to remember within a love affair, to nourish with caring remembrance under the form as songs, or more likely as things she wanted to tell, but couldn't at the moment, and that made it to songs. "
~Gerald Van Waes Webmaster/Radio show producer/Critic/Radio SHOW PSYCHE VAN HET FOLK/

"HOPEY"
2007, self-produced
.. .. .. .. ..

"Hopey" is a brilliant, anomalous blend of ethereal acoustic chords and vocals inspired by both contem­porary female rock icons and the folk traditionalists of long ago. Callery’s delivers a studio debut with dig­nity, expertise and a passion for beautiful music."~Beth Farnham/MERCURY (Newport,RI)March 2008

Just got my copy of Hopey in the mail yesterday, love it, love it, love it!! Very personal and intimate. Comparisons have been made to Denny and Drake, but there is something quite unique here, as well.
