A native of rural Tennessee, singer-songwriter Arthur Alligood has spent the past decade driving dusty roads on tour. He has earned praise from No Depression and Common Folk and the English tastemakers at the BBC. His blend of folk, gospel and raw Southern poetry is the perfect framework for Alligood’s honest storytelling and wry commentary on the human condition.
NewSong Recordings is proud to announce the April 25, 2012 release of the album ‘One Silver Needle.’ Produced by Mikal Blue and featuring an all-star cast of musicians including drum legend Jim Keltner (John Lennon, George Harrison, Bob Dylan), bassist Leland Sklar (James Taylor, Carole King, Jackson Browne) and guitarist Michael Ward (Ben Harper, The Wallflowers), this album is the grand prize awarded to Arthur, the 2011 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest winner who was chosen from 2,100 entries.
“A meticulous craftsman, Alligood has a refreshing ability to resist throwing too much instrumentation or too many words into one song.” —NO DEPRESSION
“Truly poetic” –Cherrie McIlwaine, BBC Radio Ulster
“Alligood is a talented wordsmith . . . with lyrical pearls that only an outstanding songwriter could pen.”
–Common Folk Music
“You just don’t see talent like Arthur anymore these days, and there is not a weak song in the bunch.” –Drum legend Jim Keltner (John Lennon, George Harrison, Bob Dylan)
“His performances are subtle and powerful, his songs are original and he’s an artist who knows who he is and is not afraid to do things his own way.” –Larry Groce, host NPR’s Mountain Stage
