Allison Langerak’s ‘Unchained’ is focused on the feelings around connecting or striving to connect with the people and the world around us. It begins with 2 songs rooted in relative darkness about feeling disconnected, but trying desperately to reach those close to us. And it ends in light, with a tale of hopeful yearning after what may or may not be a missed connection. Allison brings out the beauty in the melancholic and, conversely, the delightfully melancholic in the happier moments, resulting in each side of that spectrum achieving a greater depth.
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.
