Bio:

Allison is a Rhode Island native singer-songwriter who is turning heads with her pure voice, heartfelt lyrics, and a solid serving of humor and sass. 

Her influences are evident in her artistry, as her vocal and songwriting styles have been likened to traditional folk styles of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, with a splash of Emmylou-esque country and a Sara Bareilles pop vibe. “Her powerful, silky vocals were awe-worthy from the very first note.” (Katie Murray—Your Heaven Audio). 

Allison released her debut EP, Hope, in late 2016—a 6-song collection of songs about life, family, and love, produced by Grammy-nominated Jack Gauthier of Lakewest Recording Studio in West Greenwich, RI and Nolan Quartaroli of True Music Studios in Smithfield, RI. She was one of 4 finalists in the Rhode Island Songwriter Association's 2015 Performing Songwriter Competition and a top 10 finalist in RISA's 2017 competition, a top 10 finalist in the Tucson Folk Festival’s 2016 Songwriter Competition, and a top 3 Finalist in the Susquehanna Folk Music Society’s 30th Anniversary Songwriting Contest (2016—honorable mention).


As soon as [Allison] took the stage I sensed, and adored her Sara Bareilles vibe...Her powerful, silky vocals were awe-worthy from the very first note.(Katie Murray—Your Heaven Audio)
She can make you homesick for a place you didn’t know existed...She burst onto the scene with an aura that commands the listening ear of everyone in the room. (Alex Villanueva—Stick and Move Music)
