There are many good things on the horizon for Alli and I! 2015 will bring the release of a full length record and lots of travel time for the acoustic act from Lincoln. A&I's new album is a documentation of Andrew Standley's heart on his sleeve, and will have tracks spanning from just him and his guitar, and reaching deep into a handful of full band numbers. Stay tuned for 'Imaginary Hearts', as it is expected release is February 27th, 2015. Find Alli and I on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter to become part of the fam-'Alli'.
Clark & Company
Clark & Company was created by 17-year-old triplets from Omaha, Neb., with Sophie Clark on keyboard and vocals, Cooper Clark on acoustic and electric bass, and Simon Clark on drums and percussion. Sophie is also the songwriter for the group. Company members are Cameron Thelander on tenor saxophone, Michael Palandri on alto saxophone, and Sam Tarin on trumpet.
The band's first album, "Three of Swords," with 13 original songs, was released in January 2014. One of the songs from this album, "Battle Cry," was named a finalist in the 10th Annual International Acoustic Music Awards, in the Best Group/ Duo category.
The band is also a nominee in the 2015 Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards, in the R&B / Soul category.
Clark & Company's second album, "Larger World," will be released Friday, Nov. 28 at The Slowdown in Omaha.
Clark & Company's music incorporates many acoustic sounds and styles, including singer/songwriter, blues, soul, soft rock, and many other influences. Songwriter Sophie Clark is inspired by her own experiences and those of others, and she often uses metaphors in her lyrics. Her goal as a songwriter is for people to connect to her music in a way that is personal to them.
Sophie, Cooper, Simon and Cameron are seniors at Westside High School in Omaha. Michael and Sam are UNO students.
