On the turn of a coin she was accepted into the prestigious CMAA Academy of Country Music in 2011 where she learned how to refine herself as an artist and a songwriter and to embrace what had always made her different to everybody else. The past two years have been spent traveling, writing, learning and performing.

 

Since beginning her songwriting journey, Allison has been invited to perform at the Tamworth Chamber of Business Awards, the esteemed Roll of Renown Concert where she represented John Williamson at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and she has graced the stage with artists like Bill Chambers and Amber Lawrence and Golden Guitar winners Beccy Cole and Luke O'Shea.
