"Just when you thought Australian music was all thrash, punk and wall of sound indie - up steps the pure and ebullient natural talent of Alison Newman. She effortlessly has all the power, clarity and allure of Adele; and a constant smile" The Music Producer

"Heart Songs showcases Alison's ability to write relate able and engaging songs spanning different styles and creative directions. Alison stands out for the beautiful dynamics of her voice, and for her naturally expressive tone. She feels at home on delicate ballads, as well as within some of the most energetic cuts on this full-length album, highlighting her versatility as a singer."

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.
