Alison Albers delivers a perfect slice of captivating storytelling folk-pop Americana with ‘Young Love’

Born in a tiny town on the Mississippi River and growing up around dive bars and dirty roads in Montana, now living in San Francisco, writing songs about home, boys, and (just occasionally) girls, Alison Albers has a stunning, fragile yet powerful voice, haunting and mellow, and the kind that whispers gentle truths across one final beer on a night-time porch amidst the sound of cicadas and the throb of traffic in the far, far distance.

‘Young Love’, Alison’s latest single (taken from new EP ‘Balboa’) is exactly that vibe, a lilting winsome vocal, captivating and storytelling atop fingerpicked acoustic guitar and beautifully arranged strings; folky, sweet Americana – think Lene Marlin, Sheryl Crow, Taylor Swift, Emily Barker, and Martha Bailey. It’s delicate, confessional, personal, and honest, apparently effortless, and frankly it’s beautiful. We’re looking forward to hearing a lot more from Alison Albers.

Check out ‘Young Love’, and the rest of ‘Balboa’ on Spotify; follow Alison Albers on Facebook and Instagram.
