about

"Providence Rhode Island's Allysen Callery is the most bewitching and beguiling modern folk singer/guitarist you've likely yet to hear . Her excellent new mini CD what "recorded in a greenhouse by the edge of the woods with natural birdsong, frog and cricket jams" (it's true ) you can hear every slide up the strings and every knock on the body of her acoustic guitar in full , ringing finger style sound . No bluffing, no-frills, and a voice shaped by the Creator for singing."- Dynamite Hemorrhage (2017)

Prince's Pine is a small wild flower plant which grows in the forests of north america, you have to really look to find it.
Recorded in a greenhouse by the edge of the woods, with natural birdsong, frog & cricket jams.

Track Name: First Amongst the Flowers
Stop haunting me with your name
common as pebbles
under my bare feet

Each step I take
away from you
leads me doubled back
until I stand in your garden

First amongst the flowers
under a rainless sky
with it's unrelenting sun
Track Name: Dark Winged Sparrow
Sweet as Bee's pollen on gentlest breezing
more bitter than the taste of wormwood
in love with the dark
in love with death
kisses your mouth where my fingers might've been
in another place
in another time
Pretty boy I would've made you mine
in another place
in another time
Lover boy my dark winged sparrow
Track Name: Prince of the Morning
Prince of the Morning
walking in golden light
high in the city
your solitary citadel
& when you closed your eyes
it was for a long time
& did you close your eyes
almost for forever?

Prince of the Morning
your hands are lily white
move clothed in darkness
apart from common
populace
& speaking at length
of what ails & moves you
of what you love & what you hate & who
& who do you love

Prince of the Morning
walking by columbine
bachelor's button
cockscomb & crossing lines
to the stately house
with it's many windows
some were for looking out
some for looking inward

& who do you love
Track Name: They Killed my Crippled Prince with the Sea Glass Eyes
They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes
he won't sing his sad songs any more
he says his songs are far too sad
but his songs could open up the truest heart
the truest heart is filled with blood & roses

They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes
said his story was all wrong
they were silent when they should've laughed
& they laughed when they should've been in mourning

They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes
he won't let his fingers play
up & down the neck of his guitar
like a Spanish courtesan
wearing crimson robes
lips stained with wine

They killed my crippled prince with the sea glass eyes
he won't sing his sad songs any more
he says theres only so many sad songs a man can sing
before life takes another path & he is gone
