Alison's Other Projects
Em and Al
Emma and Alison (sisters) have been singing together their whole lives. From a young age they would put on concerts for their parents which usually involved dancing on the coffee table wearing matching outfits. They took singing lessons together in primary school, and in high school they both joined Mayfair Singers where they sang together for 20 years. They have sung at weddings together since 1996, a number of funerals, private functions, Christmas shows and other corporate events. They love the energy of performing and sharing their rich harmonies with audiences. The girls are available to sing at any function - from weddings, birthdays and fundraisers.
Alison, Emma and Emma's husband John make up the trio Alemjo. They create new age/meditation/relaxation music.Alemjo was born in early 2015 when they were approached to create a live musical experience for a meditation class.
Their debut album Music for Meditation was released in August 2015. This album was created to accompany a chakra themed Yoga class, and they have performed it live twice since the launch.
John plays and produces the layered instrumental sounds through the use of guitars, keyboard and effects. Emma and Alison bring their gentle and intuitive vocals, together with percussive instruments and Tibetan singing bowls.
Alison and Emma have been singing together with whole lives and have relished the unique creative process that this project has brought them.
John has been creating and playing music since his teens and enjoys a range of music from relaxation to extreme metal. The Alemjo project shows the endless bounds of his creativity.
