Tired of Top 40? Then consider... 


 Allison Crowe Band,

Tidings, 6 Songs for the Season 

Continuing Allison Crowe’s love affair with six songs per CD, Tidings takes a different approach to some traditional Christmas songs like O Holy Night - and a few non-traditional ones, including Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah and Sarah McLachlan’s Angel. Even fans of Sarah will appreciate Crowe’s version of the latter. This may be the most unusual Christmas offering of the year, but possibly the most interesting.


Allison Crowe,

Lisa’s Song + 6 Songs

Allison Crowe first played Lisa's Song at a candlelight vigil for her missing friend, Lisa Marie Young. Shedding her initial shyness over the tribute, Crowe has re-recorded it and released it and six other songs as a fundraiser for the continuing search for Young. Lisa's Song has distinguished itself as one of Crowe's finest - a powerful and emotional song matched equally by Crowe's incredible vocals.
