Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States

Allison Weiss is an American guitar player and singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, NY.

Weiss first picked up a guitar at age 14 in an attempt to become a punk rock star and impress her high school crush, and though the teenage romance died after one short month, her passion for music lived on.

After moving to Athens, GA in 2005, Weiss spent the next five years in and out of various pseudo-relationships which fueled the fire for one infectious breakup song after another. She toured the southeast relentlessly and wrote constantly, self-releasing three EPs and a fan-funded full length album by the end of 2009.

At the same time, Weiss quietly built up a dedicated internet fanbase and a reputation for shameless self promotion. She gained recognition in the music community for her effective grassroots marketing techniques and spoke on a 2010 SXSW panel about crowdfunding, all while earning a BFA at the University of Georgia.
