    When critics liken you to Edith Piaf, Elton John, Aretha Franklin and Modest Mussorgsky, it’s a good sign you’re truly one-of-a-kind. So it is with musical explorer Allison Crowe who, since creating her own record label in 2001, uniquely inhabits the world of song – continually adding breadth and depth to a richly expressive repertoire for piano, vocals, guitar and bodhran.

    Crowe’s “supernaturally agile and exquisite voice” is complemented ideally by her international touring band: Céline Greb (cello, vocal harmonies); Sarah White (mandolin, vocal harmonies); and Dave Baird (bass). Longtime friend, musician and photographer Billie Woods contributes guitar and vocal harmonies to the band’s recordings. The combo’s gorgeously thrilling hybrid of Canadiana, Celtic, jazz, roots, folk, soul and original rock bridges vital originals with fresh interpretations of classics by Annie Lennox and Gary O'Driscoll.

    Alongside multi-genre concert and recording projects over this past year the Nanaimo-born, Newfoundland-based artist’s active as music curator and arranger for acclaimed stage productions of: Atlantic Canada’s folk and popular song; the collaborative works of Bertolt Brecht & Kurt Weill; and choral renderings of traditional Christmas carols.

    A singular artistry and virtuosity make Allison Crowe performances legendary - and fun. In the Scottish Highlands she brought down the house on a bill with Carol Ann Duffy, Britain’s Poet Laureate, and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, the Master of the Queen's Music. In Hollywood Superman movie director Zack Snyder is outspoken in his respect and admiration. Touring with Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet audiences responded with spontaneous standing ovations.

    "The most honest, heartfelt, and directly intimate concert in my entire life,” says longtime American public broadcaster Ross Hocker. “Allison has a special gift that is so very rare in musicians today. She is true to her mind, heart and spirit. She also has a most wonderful humor which envelops her audience."

    "Soulful. Alive. Joyous. Grievous. Real, true, music is what I want to make," sums up Allison Crowe.

    "Heirs + Grievances is the debut studio album of Allison Crowe and Band (and the 20th release on Crowe's label, Rubenesque Records Ltd.) The digital album contains 13 exciting tunes and honestly potent performances. It’s a magnificent set of songs from Allison Crowe and her extraordinary band of musicians.

Lisa's Song

Words and Music by Allison Crowe

I want to be the one
To say that I found you safe
And held you in my arms
I want anyone else in the world
to tell me
that they did too
And took you home

Across the field and to your door
and said, hey baby it’s cool,
There’s no reason to be scared anymore.
Took you home
held you in, held you in, held you in.

Just stay at home
Don’t come outside to play
Circumstance beyond control
I feel so helpless
My mind is racing and breaking
me into a million pieces
because I can’t

Take you home
across the river and to your door
Take you home and
cut through the darkness
You don’t have to cry anymore
Take you home
Hold you in, hold you in, hold you in.

You can call
me
You can call
me
You can call
me
You can call

Take you home
across the sea and to your door
Take you home
but I’m so scared
Home isn’t here anymore

Take you home
hold you in
Through the nightshade and under the stars
Hold you in

Hold you in
Hold you in
Hold...
