Artist Biography

b. Early, Texas, USA. Playing guitar and singing, Allison frequently performs songs that have a good-natured earthy feel. Among the songs in his repertoire, many of which he writes himself, are ‘Six Pack Away’, ‘She’d Make A Bulldog Break His Chain’, ‘Beer Drinker’s Hall Of Fame’, ‘Burnin’ The Honky Tonks Down’, which sit alongside more romantic material such as ‘She Don’t Hardly Touch Like She Used To’, ‘Oklahoma Sunshine’, ‘It Ain’t Home’ and ‘Love Is A Four Letter Word’, several of which were included on his 1995 debut It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Me. Allison has a vocal sound that is appropriate to his material, rough, ready and sincere. Allison’s reputation rests solidly in Texas and Oklahoma although he has travelled elsewhere in the USA and has made well-received visits to the UK. Mostly working alone, he has led A Band Named Sioux. (NB: A blues singer of the same name was active in the late 20s and early 30s. He enjoyed an occasional partnership with fellow singer Willie White.)
