On her first solo album, Outside Child, Allison Russell shares the harrowing story of her abusive childhood in a deeply moving, unforgettable song-cycle of courage, empathy, hope and love.  Produced by Dan Nobler (Lake Street Dive, Rodney Crowell, Erin Rae), Outside Child was recorded at Sound Emporium, Studio A, in Nashville and features contributions from the McCrary Sisters, Yola and Erin Rae among many others.  

From Allison Russell:

This is my first solo album. It is acutely personal. It was hard for me to write, harder still to sing, play, and share.  Also a relief. Like sucking the poison from a snake bite.

Thanks to the supreme empathy, musicality, kindness, sensitivity, and humor of each artist who brought these songs to life with me, the recording process became  — by some mystical alchemy – joyous and empowering…. Eased by loving communal laughter as much as shared tears.

My hope is that in spite of the autobiographical nature of this work – or perhaps because of it – these songs may resonate for some of the many, many others (1 in 3 girls, 1 in 4 boys, 1 in 2 trans/intersex youth) who have endured similar trespasses. My hope is that these songs may reach some of the families ravaged by such circumstances and secrets. Silence is killing us. Silence is always, eventually, complicit, and I can no longer be.

We are not alone.

We are not what we’ve lost.

I believe I can be healed. I believe we can be healed.

-Allison Russell
