“This cover is special to me because falling in love with the band Daughter has been so special. Like my older sister, I spent my time in high school and at Ole Miss only singing in choral ensembles. Soon after my junior year, however, I grew frustrated by my voice that always seemed too defiant to blend with the others. It was not until my love affair with folk and alternative bands like The Civil Wars, The Head and the Heart, Daughter, and so many others that my voice became its own unique extension of me, wholly unusual and eclectic. Now, whether it is in an intimate coffee shop performance or just in my car, singing is the area of my life where I am most joyful. Daily, I am eager to find a moment where I can wrestle with my voice, still allowing it to be moved and affected by each lyric. And when it comes to Daughter, I usually want to devour every. last. word.” — Alison Brunk

Alison Brunk: As a singer, I always intended to write songs, but it seems my brain is as defiant as my voice, and poetry came out instead. Now, a poem-writer for 6 months, I still don’t know the first thing about proper writing etiquette. I do know that I love words. I love finding words to sing about, and put all over my walls (Finch would be proud), and think much too much about. My other favorites include science fiction, floral everything, spicy foods, Jane Austen, and rereading the same books over and over until the humans around me are worried. Most of all, I love any excuse to give my overactive emotions an outlet because they are bursting all the time, just like me. My day job is teaching tiny, sometimes hellish, mostly perfect children. But, I would love to be Elizabeth Bennet when I grow up. Or Iron Man. Either would be fine.
