This wednesday at the show pony- please join us for a lovely day party-til sundown at the shop. This festive party will feature the folk music of Alessi-visiting all the way from LONDON! Please come by and say hello. We will also have a lil trunk show with amazing new clothes and jewelry by ANNAKIM Violette.
Snacks and drinks will be served.
Alessi lives in a little house in London where she makes her songs.
She uses shells and sequins for their rhythms, the guitar to paint
the scenes, the keyboard and glockenspiel for decoration and her
voice to tell the stories . . .
Paying attention to the smallest and yet sometimes the most
significant details in the natural world is inspiring to her song writing.
Trees, leaves, constellations, birds and the studying of dreams are
some of her favourite subjects to write about.
The song For One Year was recorded on a lovely summer day in
Los Angeles with Blake Collins, who shared Cloud no.17 and played
the piano, helped Alessi to tap the teacups and stir the water . . .
Alessi records all of her songs in her bedroom and is currently
putting her record together, we've heard through the willows that
the record will be titled Notes from the Tree house but we arent
yet sure if we heard that correctly . . .
She has played (and read) at Night & Day up in Manchester
(thankee to Johnathan Rice), Bar 107 faraway in Los Angeles
(thankee to the Portable Infinite) and at the end of an enchanted
garden in East London (thankee to S.O.S), in and around London
Town and she has plenty more future performances up her sleeves . . .
You'll hear about all upcoming appearances right here at this very spot ...
BUT, for now hum along hummingbirds and fill 'yer ears! ...
