Why music?" "Why breathing?
Me, Myself, and I
"Ever wonder what it would have been like to listen to a gifted singer/songwriter from Saskatchewan in a small, intimate hall before she became Joni Mitchell? Don't fret the missed opportunity. There's no need to turn back the clock. Check out Allison Crowe..." ~ Robert Reid, The Record (Canada)

"Allison Crowe has a voice to fall in love with. She is from Vancouver Island in Canada, descended from Scottish, Irish and Manx stock. She's exactly the sort of artist who can make serious headway on her own label and that's just what she's doing." Record of the Day (UK)

"Treat yourself to one of the mightiest talents on the singer-songwriter scene today." ~ Bob Muller, JoniMitchell.com (USA)

  • Allison Crowe’s Super Summer Launches with “Man of Steel”

    Musical wonder-woman Allison Crowe makes her Hollywood screen debut this Summer in "Man of Steel" - opening Friday, June 14, 2013.

    (To help preserve the great thrills and surprises in store for audiences ’round the world, Allison Crowe will make no revelations about her role, nor about anything that happens, in the movie until after its release.)

    “The experience of filming on ‘Man of Steel’ was one of the most fulfilling and INSANELY exciting (seriously) experiences I've ever had - if not THE most! I can't say much about it - and that's part of the fun. My lips are sealed,” says Crowe in a transmission received from a fog-shrouded island off Canada’s Atlantic coast.

    “What I can say is - I was so excited I couldn't sleep the night before, and that I am so incredibly humbled and overwhelmed and grateful to be a part of all of this - and it couldn't have been with a lovelier group of people.”

    Crowe, an wholly singular artist, expresses her profound gratitude to Director Zack Snyder and Producer Deborah Snyder, Producer Chuck Roven, their partners and team, everyone involved with Third Act Productions and Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures, Syncopy ~ and more folks to be named and thanked at an appropriate time.

    Signing off, from an unidentified location in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, she says: “Everyone was so amazing and down to earth on set that I had the pleasure of meeting - absolutely everybody involved - and I will never, ever forget it. Honestly, I can think back to it now AND STILL FREAK OUT, in the best way ever.”

    This epic action adventure, a tale of hope and heroism, brings to the big screen the greatest super-hero of them all. Directed by Zack Snyder, the film stars Henry Cavill (Clark Kent / Superman), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Michael Shannon (General Zod), Kevin Costner (Pa Kent), Diane Lane (Ma Kent), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Russell Crowe (Jor-El), and many more in a stellar cast – both revealed and still secret. The story is by David S. Goyer and Christopher Nolan, with music by Hans Zimmer – and an awesome array of talents in every area of the production.

    Allison Crowe flies soon to New York City for the red-carpet Premiere of “Man of Steel” believing the fate of our planet is in good hands.

  • Allison Crowe - New, Vinyl, Album This Summer

    Allison Crowe has completed recording her newest album - to debut June 25, 2013. This new release, the 11th from Crowe's Rubenesque Records, is the first to be available as a vinyl LP.

    Crowe reveals her inspiration - working with Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador, which celebrates the 18th Annual Gros Morne Theatre Festival when its season runs this year from May - September.

    "I am so grateful to have been asked two years in a row to put together songs and musically direct for a show called 'Newfoundland Vinyl'. I get to work with extremely talented and fun people each Summer in a gorgeous setting - Cow Head, NL," says Allison from her home in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. "From the vast and encyclopaedic sea of beautiful music to come from, and out of, Newfoundland and Labrador, here is a collection of some of the songs from this year's show."

    Music and comedy come together in this theatre production, written and directed by TNL's Artistic Director Jeff Pitcher. TNL announces: "On the heels of last year's runaway hit we present the all new 'Newfoundland Vinyl - The Flip Side!' ...the cast returns with more hits than a bagful of hammers!"

    Nail more on this show and other GMTF events online now @ http://www.theatrenewfoundland.com/p... (and related pages). Full details on Allison Crowe's new album coming in May.

  • Lights, Camera, Holidays: Allison Crowe Caps Music Year with Movies

    Allison Crowe's touring year – including concerts in Europe and Canada, as well as ballet, and theatre productions – is wrapped up at home and focus turns to film projects involving the internationally acclaimed musician.

    The World Film Premiere of the Peter Buckle-directed "A Corner Brook Tidings" charmed this month, and Rogers Television brings the joy of this PB Productions documentary "featuring Allison Crowe and you" home for the holidays, broadcasting the one-hour special (on Rogers Cable 9) from December 17 through 23, 2012. (Created with assistance from the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council, more info is @
    http://www.allisoncrowe.com/ACornerB... )

    Don Bradshaw of NTV, Canada's Superstation, caught up with the Crowe as she enjoyed a little piano-time outside Santa's workshop, in the North Pole (aka the Corner Brook Arts and Culture Centre) where the pair discussed an upcoming movie venture (
    http://ntv.ca/corner-brook-artist-si... )

    Allison Crowe's "Tidings" recording of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" is soundtrack to a movie trailer – just released for "The Pardon", a dramatic motion picture to be released in 2013:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe9yC...

    "The Pardon" is directed by Tom Anton, produced by Tom Anton, Sandi Russell, Jacqueline George and Blair Daily. The film stars Jaime King ("Sin City", "Hart of Dixie"), Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee John Hawkes ("Winter's Bone", "Lincoln", "The Sessions"), Jason Lewis, M.C. Gainey, T.J. Thyne, Tim Guinee, Leigh Whannell and John Valdetero. A powerful story of love and despair, hope and redemption, "The Pardon" is based on an actual murder case tried in the State of Louisiana in the 1940s

    Along with release of the trailer, the movie's official website is online @
    http://www.thepardonmovie.com It contains: images from the film's narrative, as well as historical clippings; a blog; news items; - and music is coming. There's word on the talented cast and crew - including the husband-and-wife director-writer team, Tom Anton and Sandi Russell (who previously paired up to create 2005's "At Last" - a romance set in pre-Katrina Louisiana).

    Alternating currents of the flesh and the spirit witnessed in the trailer are channeled by Hollywood veteran Blair Daily – whose editing and post-production supervision credits include work on several Barry Levinson films eg. "Good Morning Vietnam", "Rain Man", "Bugsy", "Avalon", "Wag the Dog" and "Man of the Year". Daily also worked on "Quiz Show" with Robert Redford and "Adventures in Baby Sitting" with Chris Columbus.

    To catch Allison Crowe's take on a much-loved song, you can watch "The Pardon" trailer via the official movie site, and, as well, it's on YouTube, and packing a wallop @
