about

Aimée Allen’s latest release, Wings Uncaged, is a musical statement of transcendence in all its facets. With a set of striking originals featuring winged creatures, negotiating the challenges and limitations of the natural world, through migration, mating, being predator, or being prey, the project provides metaphors for surviving perilous conditions in creative ways.

It is no accident that a profound meditation on the current state of democracy, Democracy How (Harmony and Dissonance) is also included. Interspersed also with unexpected re-workings of standards, Wings Uncaged proclaims that in love, as in life and in nature, we can rise above and transform our circumstances.
