Detroit singer-songwriter Allye Gaietto is having a big moment this weekend: the long-awaited release of her debut album, ‘Hoping For More.’ 

Like many films, records, books and shows, the release of ‘Hoping For More’ was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Gaietto says the album release has been worth the wait, calling the experience “a lesson in patience.”

They performed a few songs from the new album live in WDET’s Studio A ahead of their record release show happening Saturday, Aug. 27 at Otus Supply in Ferndale.
