From hard work to cheerful child’s play, songs and chants have always kept time, spinning out our stories as we go about our daily lives. In Tell ‘em I’m Gone, singer-songwriter Ashley Phillips traces our songs of work and play from the music of the African Diaspora to its 21st-century forms. Soaring through the blues, soul, and protest music, Phillips unites the historical with the contemporary in a thoughtful and joyous journey.
