Alyssandra Nighswonger – Pond Of Lilies

If there is an artist that fits the Vodka mold pretty darned well, it is Alyssandra Nighswonger-a singer-songwriter with a nod to the odd. That is blissfully obvious on the lilting and lovely Pond Of Lilies that Alyssandra released as her Tiny Desk concert contest entry. It is a song that highlights both the lovely guitar and vocals of Alyssandra and a great horn accompaniment. 

The bio on Ms. Nighswonger’s website indicates a long-player that was scheduled for recording and release in 2015, but alas, all you will find is the single for this song and the gypsy-esque EP, When My Love Knot Slips (April 2012), and a previous band self-titled EP, Lucky Penny (July 2011)  on Bandcamp and a previous 2010 LP from Alyssandra Nighswonger and the Daymakers from 2010 on iTunes. The news has been pretty quiet since this video came out.  

You can explore Alyssandra Nighswonger’s music by visiting her website, which has all of the purchase links described above.  Let’s hope that 2016 marks a new long-player release from this interesting artist!
