Allison James is a multi-talented singer, songwriter, pianist, performer, producer, teacher, and author. Her musical journey began at the age of 7 when she began to teach herself the piano. She took that passion, talent, and determination and turned it into her own mini music empire that exists today.
Guided by some of the best piano and voice teachers in the nation, she continued to develop her talents throughout her adolescence and began her own teaching studio at the age of 15. She began teaching voice lessons shortly after, while also writing, recording, arranging and producing for her students, all the while developing her own artistry.
As a Pop/R&B solo artist, Allison has been described as an upbeat Adele mixed with the soulfulness of Alicia Keys. Her strength, vulnerability, and passion for music come through in every word she sings. She has performed all over Utah, and in New York City and Florida. She was Raw Artist runner up for the RAWards Salt Lake City Musician of the Year in 2013 and has performed the National Anthem all over Utah, including for the NBA Utah Jazz. Allison also completed a year stint as a Dueling Pianist at The Tavernacle in Salt Lake City, UT.
From there to now, she has created her own record label and publishing company, AJ Records and AJ Publishing Worldwide, in which she released, co-wrote, and co-produced her debut album in June of 2018 that can be heard on all streaming platforms worldwide. She continues to release content for her following of approximately 30,000 followers on social media, including music videos, lyric videos, and cover songs under her own Dab Attitude Productions. She is currently writing her next album.
Most recently, Allison developed a Songwriting Workbook that was just accepted into publication by Hal Leonard. In her many years of teaching music, she developed a very effective simplified songwriting process that she put on paper in her workbook named, “How To Write A Song On Piano”, that will be published and sold worldwide this summer.
