Allysen Callery is an American folksinger whose delicate, austere sound has been compared to classic British folk artists like Sandy Denny and Vashti Bunyan. A native of Rhode Island, Callery taught herself to sing and play fingerstyle guitar by listening to her parents' collection of U.K. folk records from the '60s and '70s.
