Hi Allison, welcome to VQS!
Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
I’m a country-rock singer/songwriter from New York.
I have always been writing and performing music as long as I can remember. Music was always my thing. I have toured with musicals, been a session singer for big name artists, was a showgirl on a cruise ship and a teacher.
Writing music and performing on stage is when I feel most myself and I don’t think I will ever stop performing. I started performing in musical theatre when I was a kid so I learned early on that it’s important for any performer to engage their audience and really connect with them.
I’m heavily influenced by powerful, female artists and hope that my music reflects my persona. I love writing music as much as I do performing. I have been lucky enough to have been recognized a few times by NSAI and the SHOF for my efforts.
My new release really reflects who I am as an artist now and I’m very proud of the new music I am writing and releasing.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration for this new song?
“She’s a Queen” was inspired by and written about all the amazing women in my life.
Released June 5, 2021. Many of my friends are young moms, like myself, just trying to balance everything! As women, we just know how to do that, we are the ‘queens’ of our own lives.
This song celebrates all women, especially those ladies who know what it’s like to juggle family life with our own careers and interests.
It’s a tribute to every woman who is ruling her own personal kingdom; holding it all together every day and making it look effortless. It’s a more mature, girl power anthem!
What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
I hope that every female who listens to “She’s A Queen” feels somewhat empowered to go crush their own goals. Honestly, I’d be thrilled if everyone who listens to the song loves it as much as I do!
What is your favorite part of the song?
I have to pick just one part? I love the line:
“In slippers or heels, she knows how it feels to be the Queen.”
That line lays it all out. No matter if a woman is home with the kids, chilling out on the couch with a glass of wine after a long day of work or just doing whatever makes her feel good – we should always think of ourselves as Queens!
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases?
I am finishing up production on my next single. Hopefully I’ll be able to share more news about that with my fans very soon. I have been performing a lot this summer with my band and we are so excited to be back at it after a challenging year off.
