Allecia Clemons and the sexy #'s / Press

“Allecia Clemons – You’re a Jukebox Heroine Allecia Clemons is a power-folk/lyrical/country artist based out of Seattle, WA. Allecia’s songs tell stories with a dose of sarcasm and sharp socially conscious reality. Armed with an acoustic guitar, the occasional violin, and bass, she spins webs and webs of stories. Allecia draws you in with double-take topics like Hitler, girls and math, and avoiding work to sit on your ass all day. Hitting both highs and lows, her voice reminds the listener of protest ballads from the depths of rural angst. In the same vein of powerful women like Helen Reddy, Loretta Lynn, and Wanda Jackson, Allecia takes her place among them as a singer about the raw side of life. No apologies. My favorite song is of course “One Bad Math Teacher.” The first line sucked my in feminist sensibilities saying: “Barbie says math is hard, took the words to my heart, just love to play guitar, didn’t get real far” and “One bad math teacher, girls just lov”

“ Allecia Clemons has been writing sweet, thoughtful, and at times eerie lyrical folk gems in the Northwest for the past ten years. She has performed at Folklife, and many other venues all over town. Her voice is a uniquely strong instrument. She is looking forward to the CD release party at ToST!”
