Burnside Album Details
Allen-Zito, Kristin, The Atlas
Kristin Allen-Zito's second solo release The Atlas heralds her return from life as the lead singer of the electro-punk band The Trucks to her folk music roots. The album draws on her deep history of folk songwriting, solo performance, and a family deeply ensconced in the folk music scene. While her first solo album moved away from traditional folk towards indie rock and pop music, her new record is a return to the rhythms and feel of her roots. However, it is as clear as ever that Kristin knows how to blend traditional folk, catchy pop, and captivating story telling to create a unique and compelling record. Also featured on the album are many guest musicians such as Kristina Olsen (Mellissa Etheridge), Larry Knechtel (Bread, Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan), and more.
