Alicia Stockman “Lonely Together” – do you fancy coming over then?

Well, I think we can all agree that ‘The Holiday‘ is probably the worst Rom-Com of the last decade, and it’s good to know that Alicia Stockman is not so desperate for company that she’s willing to sell-out for that kind of saccharine tosh.  Nope, as she says on ‘Lonely Together‘ : “we can watch bad rom-com movies, criticise the sappiest parts / our station on the sofa will be a nation of two lonely hearts.

The song is taken from the Utah based singer-songwriter’s debut album ‘These Four Walls’ which is, she says, a collection of “songs to make you feel and feel seen, the album says, “I see you. I’ve been there. I understand.””  It’s an album that sees Stockman concentrating on her own music having started off performing in a loud rock n’ roll band playing bars with sticky floors and belting out Stevie Wonder tunes.  Her intimate music wasn’t really suited to that situation, but she has found a musical home in the folk and Americana worlds since playing more intimate venues.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
