Across the Sea
Across the Sea explores the gamut of life’s emotions through the themes of distance and longing without taking on a melancholy tone, due in large part to the lightness and humor of Allison’s stories and performances. The album takes us from the streets of a homeless person (“Please Help!”), to a middle school dance (“All That Matters”), to the dusty earth of Texas, fantasies of Ireland, an English pub at last call (“Across the Sea”), and the backyard filled with the critters (“More Than Human”). Stick around for hidden tracks from Allison’s alter-egos, Carmen & Melba!

Wind at Your Back
Wind at Your Back, Allison’s debut album, captures the spirit and intimacy of her live performances, with the help of some of Austin, Texas’ top musicians. The album kicks off with the rocking “Wind at Your Back” inspired by the Irish blessing and takes you on a journey that ultimately brings you home to the meaningful and conversational folk song, “Connections.” She explores whimsical love in the everyday moments (“The Fact of the Matter”/”You’re the Answer”) and across great distances (“2,000 Miles”), the ambiguities of relationship (“Diamond’s Edge”/”Fallen Angel”) and the love for a child (“Cate’s Cradle”). In “Shoulda Known Better” Allison addresses the issue of domestic abuse from the child’s perspective with a humorous approach and a twist at the end. She gets your body swaying to the beat of “Caribbean Life” and captures the sentiments of a nation with her poignant tribute to the brotherhood revealed “On the Day” of September 11, 2001 (a song that received airplay on radio stations across the country).
