I've been waiting on this ever since I watched one of her live youtube vids. She's somewhere between Corinne Bailey Rae and Amel Larrieux. Her debut album UnFresh is a raw, honest and refreshingly unique collection of music that defines the word atmospheric. The album also features a surprise guest appearance by Californian underground Hip-hop star Blu. Definitely a good addition to you music collection. The album is scheduled to be released on September 22nd.
Andy Allo: Hooked on Unfresh
Well, well…what do we have here? Why, it’s 21 year old, singer-songwriter from Cameroon West Africa, Andy Allo, that’s who. As written on her official website, she measures 5′7″ tall with Afro - but I’d have to add, that she’s indeed incalculable with talent. Allo has a relatable voice echoing alongside crisp production - my favorite combination. Her comfort in herself shows through in each note. A Janelle Monae from this planet, perhaps? Expect a complete review upon her debut release UnFresh set for September 22nd, but for now enjoy a free download from Allo herself.
