Prince’s Protégé Andy Allo Is A Superconductor Of Energy At Album Listening PartyPublished by Danica Daniel on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 at 11:17 am.
Before she embarks on another tour with Prince, Cameroonian-born and raised singer-songwriter Andy Allo held an album listening party on September 18th in Hollywood, California in anticipation of her new album “Superconductor.”
Considered one of the most exciting new artists on the scene, Allo has been a backup singer and guitarist in Prince’s band “The New Power Generation” since 2011. “Touring with Prince & The NPG has been a challenging and rewarding experience and Superconductor is a work of art that encapsulates the journey thus far.” Now Prince is putting his all his purple power behind his new musical-BFF. Not only did Prince serve as an Executive-Producer on “Superconductor,” he also co-wrote three tracks on the soulful album: “Superconductor,” The Calm” and “Gone” (Allo penned six tracks on her own).
Prince will debut Allo live at his “Welcome 2 Chicago” after-jam at the House of Blues in Chicago on September 24th. “As soon as we felt Andy Allo’s energetic presence on tour with our band,” says Prince, “we knew she’d be leading her own revolution soon!”
“Superconductor,” Allo’s sophomore album, will be released by The New Power Generation via Prince’s NPG Records on September 20th. Watch a live performance from Andy Allo and check out photos from her album listening party below.
