While working the night shift at a video rental shop in Brunswick, Maine, 23-year-old multi-instrumentalist Aly Spaltro crafted her haunting solo sounds. Writing and recording after hours for a four-year period, Spaltro experimented with songwriting and sounds privately before performing live or sharing her wealth of sounds with an audience. Working under the name Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Spaltro debuted her project with Ripely Pine, a glowing and often anguished collection of spare and haunted songs somewhere between campfire folk and yearning indie rock.
