Biography

(1992 – present)

Since the release of 1999’s The End Of Days, Michael Allison has been at the forefront of the new / music scene. He began as a singer and bassist in the 70’s and 80’s, playing in groups that included such diverse talents as former Labelle singer Nona Hendryx, Richard Hell and the Voidoids and China Shop, a New York City post-punk art rock band and ultimately his own group Empty House who disbanded in 1987.

In 1992 Allison made a major decision to quit touring and chasing the Rock an Roll of his childhood concentrating instead on setting up his own home studio in order to compose in a stress-free environment with no expectations of “making it big”. During the years 1992-1999 his compositions were mostly inspired by his studies in and other disciplines. The name Darshan Ambient comes from those adventures in self realization: The word Darshan is a Sanskrit Hindu term meaning sight or a glimpse of the divine.

Michael’s Pop & Rock roots have played an indelible role in shaping the music he would eventually compose as an ambient artist. A lot of so-called ‘ambient’ music leaves the listener cold but Allison’s lush melodies and chordal sensibilities have a powerful emotional impact that stays with you long after the CD fades away.
