Biography

Singer Alison Allison was born in Hull, England. She began singing when she was a shy, but talented, child, appearing at local festivals and performing in her school's choir. Both helped build her self-assurance before audiences, as well as polish her superb vocal skills. In 1997, Allison joined forces with songwriter and guitarist Paul Fantini, who had already been a friend for years. A few months later, the Alison Allison Band took its first breaths of life in Los Angeles, CA. Other members are bassist William Preston Bowling and drummer Scott Hernandez. Each has worked in the music business since a young age. Together, the group makes a talented foursome that offers power pop music influenced by artists like Third Eye Blind, the Police, Sheryl Crow, and Natalie Merchant. Allison's debut EP, Here With Me, was released at the end of 1997, without drummer Hernandez, who joined up with the others in 1998. That same year, the band finished recording its first album, Round the Bend, released independently. Some of the tunes from this seven-track offering are "I'll Be There," "Sometimes," "Not Too Late," and "Way of the World." In 1999, the Rock City Music Awards nominated Allison for Best Female Vocalist. After reaching some success with Round the Bend and receiving mostly positive reviews, the band headed back into the studio to start work on a sophomore album for 2001. ~ Charlotte Dillon
