ABOUT

Classically trained at The Queensland Conservatorium of Music in Australia, Alison moved to the United Kingdom 30 years ago. Alison has been singing professionally for 34 years and is known world-wide as a versatile musical theatre and concert performer and recording artist.

A Laurence Olivier Award nominated actress, she has appeared in numerous West End shows such as Les Miserables, Jerry Springer the Opera (Royal National Theatre) and On the Town for the English National Opera at the Colisseum and at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.

She is as much at ease paying homage to Ella Fitzgerald at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club as she is fronting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at The Royal Albert Hall. She has an eclectic taste in music and resists being “pigeon-holed”.

Alison is a highly regarded concert artist performing with many of the UK’s leading orchestras: the Royal Philharmonic, the Halle, the BBC Concert Orchestra, the Liverpool Philharmonic, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra to name a few.

Alison works regularly as a session vocalist, lending her voice to television shows such as X Factor, tv theme tunes, film soundtracks, and commercials. As a vocalist, Alison’s most regarded for her versatility and natural ability to embrace a wide variety of styles.

Alison has recorded four solo albums, the most recent of which, Inspirational, was inspired by her father’s battle with Alzheimer’s and his passing in 2014. Inspirational features the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, gospel choir, classical choir and an impressive creative team of arrangers, musicians and one of the industry’s top producers.
