Allison Russell Shares Video For ‘You’re Not Alone’
The live video was filmed during a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Allison Russell has shared a music video for her Brandi Carlile-assisted single, “You’re Not Alone.”
Russell and Carlile have been wowing live audiences with their affirmative and uplifting single for the last month. They debuted the song with a performance at the Americana Music Association Awards in September where Russell won Album of the Year for her acclaimed 2021 LP, Outside Child.
They also performed “You’re Not Alone,” at Carlile’s recent Madison Square Garden and Boston’s TD Center shows and at their show together at Red Rocks Amphitheater in August–where they also shot the music video. The single has been the Americana radio chart Top 10 for six weeks and counting.
For Russell and Outside Child, the incredible list of accolades keeps growing. They include two International Folk Music Awards, a 2022 Juno nomination for “Songwriter of the Year,” and her first-ever Juno Award win for Contemporary Roots Album of the Year.
Last year, Russell also won three Canadian Folk Music Awards, two UK Americana Music Awards, received two 2021 Americana Awards nominations in addition to this year’s win and three Grammy Award nominations (her first ever Grammy nods). Allison Russell has selected dates throughout the fall including a stop at The Troubadour in Los Angeles on November 15.
On her debut solo album, the critically acclaimed Outside Child (produced by Dan Knobler), Allison Russell, the poet, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, activist, and co-founder of Our Native Daughters and Birds of Chicago, unpacks her youth in searing detail.
She sings about deliverance and redemption, about the places, people, and realizations that helped her survive and claim her freedom. “It’s an album of strength and affirmation, not victimization,” said The New York Times in their profile on Russell.
Following the release of Outside Child, Russell performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Ellen, Late Night With Stephen Colbert, and CBS This Morning. Additionally, she made her Opry debut and appeared at the Country Music Hall of Fame. She performed at the 2022 Grammys Premiere Ceremony and recently made her Austin City Limits and Tiny Desk debuts.
