Allison writes songs about love, life, and the spaces in-between. Sometimes simple, occasionally complex, and usually reflective and contemplative in nature and sound. Her deep quest for connection to something outside of herself is phonetically displayed as she challenges contemporary ideas of rhythm and song structure. She is often likened to Joni Mitchell and Eva Cassidy. Her voice moves emotionally and gracefully from tearful vulnerability to volcanic expulsions of passion and longing. Quirky and earnest, Allison will probably get you to laugh and cry without very much space in-between.
"Her lyrics are accessible and heartfelt, daring to voice the obvious in life."
