Allysen Callery – Mumblin’ Sue

American folk singer-songwriter Allysen Callery is unveiling a new music video for Lily Of The Valley, as the first extract from her fifth release, Mumblin’ Sue.

Counting Marissa Nadler among her greatest admirers, Allysen Callery is regularly featured on Fluid Radio, Folk Radio UK and WFMU’s Shrunken Planet. Callery is a self-taught acoustic folk artist from Rhode Island, USA. Growing up in New England, she was heavily influenced by her parents’ collection of British folk revival records of the late 60′s early 70′s. With her finger-picked steel-stringed guitar, she is a keen storyteller, her intimate and stripped-down yet haunting songs placing her as a gem in the new folk scene. A gem which one would like to keep for oneself, but which should hopefully not remain hidden for long!

Mumbin Sue is out since June 15 on 75 or Less Records (CD), and (digital).
It will be released on vinyl on September 9 on German label Jellyfant.

Directed by Brett Davey, with Ava Callery, Christian Haler, Timothy Davey & Sakari.
Lily of the Valley tells of the courage and self determination sometimes required to walk away from a relationship. It questions the value of materialism against the love of nature and human interactions.
