It’s a rare gift to move people around the world with your voice, your words, your music. It’s a rare artist who can maintain such a gift, full-force, as Allison Crowe’s done for nearing 20 years.
On such a journey, a special group of people come together as a team. Here’s a look at the creativity of Mind Palace – the brain-child of Céline Sawchuk – Allison Crowe and Band’s graphic artist/designer (and former cellist):
I’m 38 today 😬 so I’m gonna spend the night on stage to ward off the fact that I feel like this: 😬 about turning 38. Pictured here: me wearing a headband made of the sparkly fabric I had to cut off the pants of Justice’s jumpsuit because while I’ve made it to 38, I stopped growing at like 12. #birthday #musicaltheatre #scorpioseason
Opening niiiiight! Rock of ages rock n roll!

Rock of Ages – Allison Crowe is Justice
Allison Crowe is Justice – in the Off-Broadway Players production of “Rock of Ages” – rocking all ages this Thursday through Saturday, November 14 – 16, on-stage at the Corner Brook Arts and Culture Centre:
“Rock of Ages is the jukebox musical story of a small-town girl, a city boy, and a rock ‘n’ roll romance on the Sunset Strip. But when the bar where rock reigns supreme is set to be demolished, it’s up to these wannabe rockers and their band of friends to save the day – and the music. Rock of Ages’ electric score features all your favourite ‘80s rock anthems and power ballads from Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, Steve Perry, Poison and Europe, among other well-known rock bands.
Are you ready to rock Corner Brook? Be prepared to have your faces melted!”
So – we recorded a total of 20 tracks in 4 days – LOTS of music to come – super excited about it all
lots of new songs, a few from the early 2000s reworked , some that are part of the musical I’m working on… so proud of my band. Stay tuned!
Allison Crowe, Sarah White & Keelan Purchase look forward to sharing music and fun – life’s magic with you.
This night’s concert is SOLD OUT! Thank you, everyone 🙂 „Going Home Tonight“: https://www.facebook.com/AllisonCroweMusic/videos/10153766625251676/
