"4 out of 5 stars for "I Have Not Seen the Wind""

Alligood, a Nashville-based singer/songwriter, may not be a household name but his music is instantly universal. With the pangs of plucking nylon strings, weeping bends of pedal steel and thrusts of Americana rock, plus the folk skills of producer Kenny Hutson (Over the Rhine, Julie Lee), Alligood canvasses common human experiences with haunting realness. Though his verses depict a man unafraid to confront his emotions, it is his most tender lines ("Come on Jesus … take me kicking / Take me screaming / Take these tears from my eyes," from "Come on Something") that convey surrender and makes his sorrowful lines so appealing. - CT Magazine


"8.4/10 "I Have Not Seen the Wind""

"At the get-go, Alligood hums the sparse tune “Show Some Heart,” pleading earnestly with the listener to let down some walls, unlock some doors, and follow some of those suppressed dreams. He might as well have written this tune with a busted guitar over late-night drinks with Bill Mallonee."
- The Blue Indian

Bio

WINNER OF THE 2011 MOUNTAIN STAGE NEWSONG CONTEST!!!!

A native of rural Tennessee, singer-songwriter Arthur Alligood has spent the past decade driving dusty roads on tour, and since March, his new LP I Have Not Seen the Wind has earned praise from No Depression and Common Folk and even the English tastemakers at the BBC. Its blend of folk, gospel and raw Southern poetry is the perfect framework for Alligood’s honest storytelling and wry
commentary on the human condition.

-Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2

“Well, Nashville’s Arthur Alligood (pronounces Alley-good) is one of said troubadours and, to be absolutely fair and not jaded in the least, at all, he is better than most. Not to damn with faint praise, but he is.”
-Americana-UK

“Alligood is a talented wordsmith who has created an accomplished album replete with lyrical pearls that only an outstanding songwriter could pen.”
-Common Folk Music
