Mix and words by singer/songwriter Allysen Callery (RI). Visit her website and/or follow her on Twitter and Facebook.  

Some kinds of folk linger in the shadows, maybe because they are shy, and maybe there in that safe place they begin to glow with their own quiet light, as your eyes adjust to the darkness. Some folk step into the light, are of the earth and let it’s roots intertwine with others. Listen to the music of the woods, from the still and solitary corner of cottages, and be encouraged by the knowledge you are not alone.

I present some of my favorite artists and friends, some I’ve grown up with, and some I feel like I’ve known forever. There are a few cherry picked from my home in Rhode Island, and some from different parts of the world as this age has allowed us to find each other and communicate. Which is good sometimes for the quiet folk.
