When my friend Cathy Zucker said, “I have a student who has made a CD and she is really good!” my first mental reaction was, “She must be good, because Cathy is a vocal teacher, soloist and a person of great integrity!” So, I said: “I would love to hear her!” What I was not prepared for was . . . just how good! However, when I popped the CD in my computer and heard Allie sang the first few bars of It’s Gettin’ Old, I said . . . “She’s good!” My producer said. “She’s good!”
This is often the kind of expression that follows the fifteen-year-old around as she builds her career in music–country music! Her list of performances continues to grow, and her admirers excel or match it.
Who is this young songstress destined to make her mark on the world?Allie has spent most of her life in Michigan, comes from a family of six children–has siblings with professional interests like dentistry, engineering and law, but Allie chose music–music that allows her to not only display her artistic skills, but emotions as well. Her rendition of each song reveals polished, well-executed technique, but also, a command of the depth of emotion and feeling needed to reach into the hearts and souls of her listeners. She says:
“My true passion is to bring music to life–whether using my voice as my instrument or playing my guitar, the piano or the drums!”
