With her enchanting voice layered on experimental alternative beats, Alo Ver hypnotizes listeners and compels them to explore what is beyond the expected with her lyrics about humanity, spirituality and love. The self-titled album is a collection of seven songs shaped by influences like Sylvan Esso and Flying Lotus with a chilling yet colorful soundscape and unique beats to dance along to. Alo Ver (Cassidy Goff) first fell in love with music in high school after listening to The Avett Brothers which she credits as her inspiration. Shortly after hearing them for the first time, she started learning the banjo and writing folk songs. Cassidy formed a band at The University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill featuring a jazz-rock sound called Web Threats. Now, at the age of twenty, Alo is ready to release her first solo album with more to follow.
Alo Ver will be at Firefly Festival this summer with Rakeem Miles performing their song "Lemonade."

Alo Ver's first single, "Planet Earth," is now out on all streaming platforms. Her velvety voice leads you through a dense jungle coupled with an electronic dance beat that mimics the liveliness of the rainforest. The song captures the irreplaceable beauty of the jungle and its inhabiting animals to encourage the protection and respect of our fragile ecosystems. Alo Ver's first song is as exotic as the rainforest, and make sure you listen to the end to experience her special outro.
