NEW GUEST ARTIST: ALLISON CROWE (Official Website of Jewel Kilcher)
May 26, 2002

Allison is featured as guest artist on Jewel’s website, in a section "dedicated to folks we love. We're sure you'll love them, too. They've all been slathered with generous portions of talent, heart, soul — so what's not to love?" Here's what the site says:

Beautifully moody or riotously rocking, Allison Crowe creates piano-based music of transcendent quality. A 20 year old singer/songwriter based in British Columbia, her voice, poetic and haunting, is a modern original. Allison is reaching new audiences this year with her debut album, ‘midnight syren.’ She’s been called ‘a mega-talent in the making’ and her music is a testament to the power of the human voice and spirit.


Once again, it's our great pleasure to invite you to experience a new guest artist at Our newest musician to be featured is emerging singer-songwriter Allison Crowe, a Canadian from Nanaimo, British Columbia. Although Allison is young and yet to release her first full-length album, she caught my attention, because not only was her voice captivating, I found her songwriting to have remarkable depth. Her voice, poetic and haunting, is a modern original at the same time as it recalls rock's greats of the '60s and '70s.

Much like the way many people felt upon hearing Jewel during her InnerChange days, when listening to Allison's music, one recognizes the obvious great potential there and feels lucky to be experiencing her at this point in time. She's been called "a mega-talent in the making" and her music is a testament to the power of the human voice and spirit.

We invite you to learn more about Allison and experience her music for yourself. From the main navigation page on, click "favorites." This will bring you to our newest guest artist feature.
