Bio

Alison Avron is a singer, songwriter and piano player. She grew up in rural South Australia and amused herself by singing in community choirs and touring with opera companies. Once she was old enough to drive and enrol at university she moved to Canberra to study music. However, an institution could not hold down this fiercely independent girl so she dropped out and started writing songs and doing gigs of her own. Alison eventually found herself living amongst the buzz and grooves of Sydney’s inner-west. She started hanging out and singing with all of Sydney's cool cats: Mahalia Barnes, Elana Stone, Abby Dobson, Monsieur Camembert - even the legendary, Kamahl! Mostly Alison Avron loves community and music. She combines these two things by hosting gigs at her boutique, New York-style intimate venue, The Newsagency - located in Marrickville. She is pretty happy to have a venue she can, quite literally, call home. It's the perfect way to perform the songs she writes for her - mostly happy but sometimes sad - feelings. Slightly manic yet completely loveable, witty and nonchalant you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone like Alison Avron.

Is that cowbell?
I feel it would be 5 stars, if it had more cowbell.

Maybe a thought for your next release.

I love this, the only thing that would tip it over to 5 stars is a full band arrangement. It's already quite full and builds nicely, I just feel it plateaus a little shy or where it could near the end and drums or an extra dynamic element would tip it over the edge into perfection.

That said, it's very good and I would like to hear more.

She really knows how to hit a note - both vocally and with the joy this song brings with even the first listen. Beautifully produced, gorgeous melody, sweet lyrics - love it!
