During the lockdowns and challenges of 2020, Alison was compelled to continue creating as a way of maintaining her creativity while gigs were cancelled, and as a means of managing her mental health.


Alison created a collection of cover songs which she made her own. Through changing the tempo, keys and giving each with a bespoke piano backing, Alison breathed new life into old favourites and some lesser well known songs too.

Alison's current project is WOLF a 6 or maybe 7 track EP, a deep dive into her world shattering experience with post-natal depression. The Wolf plays the role of the PND and she is akin to Little Red Riding Hood, taken over by the Wolf, consumed and destroyed.

Wolf is being recorded in Spain and Argentina, and produced in Spain by Hernan Romero who Alison has worked with many times before as an accompanist. She records her vocals in her home studio and sends them off. Almost all 6 songs are written and 3 tracks are finished. The team is hopeful that it will be ready to share with the world before the end of 2022.

Alison is proud to be a Support Crew Member for LifeboatSE who aid mental wellbeing in reg
