Winter Island is a brand new EP out on Woodland Recordings. Allysen Callery crafts a fantastic, delicate, and magical world to live in through her songs. Her writing is influenced by many years spent as a poet in and around the ocean towns of Rhode Island. Winter Island, out now directly from the artist, is gorgeous and blissed out.

Artist Mikey Welsh — who once pounded the bass for perennial chartsters Weezer — is exhibiting a range of new works, Paintings and Drawings, at Montanaro Gallery in Newport, Rhode Island. The show kicks off on Saturday, November 8th from 7-10pm. We caught up with him for an email chat: How different is the lifestyle between fulltime musician and fulltime artist in terms of the time you start and end your day, and the energy you bring to your activities? ‘My life is much healthier than it used to be. In my Weezer days, I would usually wake up massively hung over in various hotels and tour buses around the world. I would end my day at 5 or 6 in the morning, damaging myself somehow. Now I wake up at 5am and start painting right through the morning. I am in bed by ten every night’.
