about

Songwriter and Singer since the age of 13, Alanna Fugate has learned over the years, the art of taking what life has to offer, and give it back with a smile. Now 24, the eleven years of guitar playing, songwriting, and countless shows have payed off. As a performing artist she's developed a distinct claw hammer and percusive style of guitar playing, while still exuding an original and organic sound with flavors of jazz, bluegrass, and traditional folk. As a songwriter she has matured into a story teller more so than just a lyricist. Mid-November of 2007, Alanna began tracking for what is her upcoming release "lost A Little" at Rhambus Studio, located in old louisville KY. Surrounded by 18 foot celings, hard wood floors, and a crew of new found friends (including a cat named The Eagles), She began a three month journey into her first studio experience... stepping over the bounderies of her comfort levels, trying new things as an artist, and learning about the balance of give and take when someone else gets behind the wheel and turns the knobs. But for Alanna's first time in a studio, It could not have been a better experience. Recording Engineer and close friend Michael Dufresne took the extra time and effort to get the sounds and takes needed to make this an eloquent collection of songs. The songs on this album have an unique and fresh approach. Such as the Track 'Empty Bottles',layerd with thick fiddle-style cello, the main vocal line put to the back, with Spoken Word on top of the mix, Making an ambiance that only a ghost could. 'Lost A Little' the title track of the album is heavly influnced by the sounds of an old-time string band such as claw-hammer banjo, clogging and fiddle, With the added touch of some rockin' drums by Ray Rizzo (Java Man, Days of the New). One of the most lyricaly honest songs on the album 'Three Good Reasons' showcases Fugate's ability to tell a story with honesty and emotion very few songwriters ever reach in their careers. Ben Sollee (Sparrow Quartet) comes in beautifuly on this track surrounding the lyrics with immulations of these emotions. Other guest Musician's on the Album include, Owen Reynolds (upright bass, The Betweeners, Zoe Speaks), Todd Hildreth (accordian, Squeeze-bot, Java Man), Jorden Ellis (drums), Gareth Jones (percussion & Guitar), Mark 'lupe' Hamilton (electric guitar) and Michael Dufresne (upright bass). Final Mixing and Mastering was done by Dave Barrick, Barrick Recording Studio, Glasgow KY Originally from Ewing Va, Alanna Fugate spent the past five years living in Richmond KY. Seven Months ago she packed her things and moved to Louisville KY. Since she's been there, she has opened a new chapter to her life by opening her guitar case and playing to the open ears and arms of over 20 of louisville's stages, clocking in 75+ shows just there in the city.
