Allison Russell performed Live on KEXP. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist brought her band to KEXP studios in Seattle this past Juneteenth to perform songs from her 2021 album Outside Child and more.

Russell released her Grammy-nominated Outside Child on May 21, 2021. For her KEXP performance, Allison played banjo and clarinet and was joined by her band of cellist Larissa Maestro, bassist Ganessa James, guitarist Mandy Fer and drummer Elizabeth Goodfellow.

The session got underway with Outside Child’s “Hy-Brasil” ahead of a song written by Russell from the Our Native Daughters — Allison’s project alongside Rhiannon Giddens, Amythyst Kiah and Leyla McCalla — catalog with “Quasheba, Quasheba.” A return to Outside Child in “4th Day Prayer” and “All Of The Women” followed before Russell wrapped things up with the two-time Grammy-nominated song from the album, “Nightflyer.” Allison also chats with host Gabriel Teodros.
