Hello and welcome to Discovery Corner on BTR! This week we’re looking towards our roots, and Alana Henderson’s folksy blend of traditional Irish music, jazz, and blues does exactly that. Her inventively percussive cello playing is the perfect accent to subtle songs about love and family that you might swear you’ve heard before, but in the best way possible; in the way that a long lost memory returns to you.

I’ll be featuring songs off of her most recent offering, Windfall. Expect more to come from this talented artist–she’s just wrapped up an international tour with Hozier, and currently has a solid musical diary filled with inspiration from her travels. Here’s to the road, and to the songs it may bring.

And don’t forget to check out the Discovery Artist feature on Alana Henderson!
