On January 27, 2014, Cameroonian-born singer-songwriter, guitarist, pianist, model, and actress Andy Allo performed her first ever solo show in New York at Mercury Lounge in the Lower East Side. Fans braved the freezing temperatures only to have our hearts melted by Andy Allo’s smooth and very beautiful voice. She performed songs from her debut album “Unfresh,” a cover of Bob Marley’s “Waiting in Vain,” as well as tracks from her latest offering, “Superconductor,” a record that featured some help from the Voldemort of funk – Prince. Typically when Prince produces an artist, he brings out their best, but I can honestly say after seeing Andy Allo live, she is WAY better off without a little help from her friends. Her voice is incredible and her songs work better stripped down acoustically than they do featuring purple production. Like the Harry Potter universe did with Voldemort, Allo did not need to speak his name throughout her show and as a result, we were all able to fall in love with Andy Allo for her gift of song and not for her famous friends.

There’s no word if the Purple Police will come after me for posting this video, but if they do, I will comply and then write an article which will hopefully go viral about what a horrible person and business man Prince is… and boy, do I have stories I could tell. Not a threat, just a fact. He may be a control freak over his intellectual property, but he’s got nothing over mine. He may dress like a Jehovah’s Witness, but the similarities end there, I assure you! 🙂
Thanks for a great night Andy!
