About Allison Weiss
Allison Weiss (Athens, GA) is a heartfelt singer/songwriter with a quirky charm, sharp pop sensibilities, and an avid online following. The energetic 22-year-old is winning hearts across the country with her entertaining live shows and infectious songs of love and loss. “I’m all about catchy, upbeat, feel-good music, but the one thing I seem to aways write about is heartbreak,” she recently told Billboard.com, “I say [my songs] sound like your saddest memories sung to the tune of your happiest.” The epitome of a DIY artist, Weiss is unsigned, self-released, and not slowing down any time soon. Having just returned from SXSW, where she spoke about her most recent fan-funded album, Weiss is ready to hit the road again this summer and can't wait for the future.
"Hello, my name is Allison Weiss. I play guitar and tell my secrets to audiences. When I don't hate the world, I'm completely in love with it. My passions in life are music, graphic design, laughing and making people laugh, having awesome conversations, the internet, the concept of love, and attempting to solve problems and/or win hearts through catchy songs of hope.
My favorite part of playing music is paying my dues. I like to work hard and be rewarded. I like to play out of state and sleep on people's floors. I like to make xerox CDs and sell them for production cost. I like crowds who pay attention, and crowds who get drunk and dance. I like to break strings and break hearts and lose sleep and make friends."
