Allison Crowe is a visceral performer and singular songwriter. Crowe’s home is Corner Brook, NL. Her birthplace is Nanaimo, BC. From Canada’s coasts she’s taken the road less-traveled to harmonizing life as musician (voice, piano, guitar, fiddle, bodhran), composer, arranger, engineer & producer.
"Soulful. Alive. Joyous. Grievous. Real, true, music is what I want to make," says Allison. Via 28 albums, singles, EPs and compilations, Crowe’s oeuvre (solo and with band) nears 200 unique tracks embracing rock, Celtic, folk, jazz, soul, Canadiana and Broadway.
Allison Crowe’s toured with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet performing the songs of Leonard Cohen to nightly standing ovations. And, as independent and underground as she is in her ways, the musician has fans in Hollywood. Director Zack Snyder flew Crowe cross-continent to cameo in the Superman blockbuster “Man of Steel”. “I’m a big Johnny Cash fan. And I’m a big Allison Crowe fan," reveals Snyder. "So the combination to me seemed like an awesome opportunity if we could make it happen.”
Back home in Corner Brook, NL, Crowe is Musical Director of "Newfoundland Vinyl" – a rollicking hit at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival each Summer. Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador Artistic Director Jeff Pitcher observes: "No matter where she is in this world, that voice, that conviction, it crosses all borders. She's one of those rare artists that fits into any culture, any community because she is who she is – an incredible talent."
