SAM005-01 // ‘The One and Only’ by Allison Langerak/Graham Brice
2 Songs From 2 Perspectives Tell 1 Intertwined Story.
While working on music for her upcoming solo release, Allison Langerak shared a demo for “You’re The One” with her songwriting compatriot, Graham Brice. Soon, he’d sent the song back to her with harmonies and a guitar solo along with his own track, “Only One,” answering hers. These developed into a pair of linked call-and-response singles, from the perspectives of two characters, voiced by Allison and Graham. Each is about a yearning for connection—perhaps unrequited, perhaps not, depending on the point of view.
Allison Langerak is a singer/songwriter in Brooklyn, NY. She has played in several NYC bands including Breakup Breakdown, The Blue Eighty-Eights, Bel Air and James Sparber's Pleasure Machine. She frequently guests on backup vocals with Benjamin Adair Murphy and Mishka Shubaly.
