Allison is a Rhode Island native singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who is turning heads in her local music scene with heartfelt lyrics, her pure voice, and a solid serving of humor and sass.
A classically-trained pianist and vocalist, Allison grew up on piano lessons and choir rehearsals, eventually choosing music as her college minor.
Lately she's been popping up at open mics and venues such as Providence RI's Brooklyn Coffee and Tea House, Pomfret CT's Vanilla Bean Cafe, and Tiverton RI's Sandywood's Center for The Arts. She was one of four finalists in the Rhode Island Songwriter Association's 2015 Performing Songwriter 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). She released her debut CD, “Hope,” in November 2016.
Allison gives back to her community as a volunteer and board member of a RI-based nonprofit organization, RISING, which serves young adult and beginning songwriters and musicians by providing music education, mentorship, and performance opportunities. She is involved in the CREATORS expressive arts program with PeaceLove studios—a wonderful organization that seeks to help people create peace of mind through expressive arts and storytelling, as well as to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
Allison is a mommy to two beautiful children and by day has a fulfilling career as a mental health counselor. Aside from music, Allison is a photographer, and enjoys the ocean, a comfy bed, and dropping a good F-bomb.
