Lady Lamb the Beekeeper: Ripely Pine
Earlier this year Lady Lamb the Beekeeper released her much-awaited first studio album 'Ripely Pine'. Aly Spaltro had been recording music for years in her bedroom both as a solo artist and part of a duo, had gained a bit of a cult following, been booked for SXSW showcases, and won music awards, so it was only a matter of time before this East-coast talent was nabbed by a record label. Spaltro's voice ranges from deep and husky, to fierce and fiery, to soft and uplifting, accompanied by her guitar or a full band she has a range that is impressive for someone of her age. This along with the honesty and vulnerability in her lyrics makes this an exposing album, it's clear Spaltro is sharing her longing for love as her emotions range from energetic rage to timid reflection.
She's been likened to St Vincent, Jeff Buckley, The Alabama Shakes, Sharon Van Etten, just to name a few. It's clear she's one young artist to keep an eye out for, as she trail-blazes her way through the music industry.
