Allison Chong is a Canadian singer, songwriter and performer born in Toronto. Having great success in Japan, she is now embarking on her first English speaking album relesed in the spring of 2010... The self titled debut album contains elements of pop/rock to adult contemporary.
Allison was fortunate to experience and enjoy four successful years touring throughout Japan. She enjoyed the culture and how well they embraced her, and she enjoyed the opportunity to connect with her fans, which she regards as people who are “just like me, we are all living in this great thing called life”. These four years afforded her the ability to experience and see things that have shaped the artist and person she is today.
Throughout 2008 and into 2009, Allison has been actively compiling songs for her self titled independent debut album scheduled to be released spring 2009.
Allison has been working with producers and writers to complete her EP which includes six songs about topics ranging from heartbreak to politics. Her style is not easily categorized, and her influence is diverse, a parallel to the country which she plans to debut it in.
Following her scheduled spring 2009 release of her EP she hopes to begin a cross Canada tour by fall 2009. According to Allison “touring and live performances is where my passion as an artist lies”.
“Music is a constant dynamic process which involves learning, growth and evolution as an artist and as an individual”
“I’m very open to hybrid sounds- anything that reflects the cultural diversity that's unique in Canada”
“I love playing, I love singing, the connection it creates when there's this back and forth energy that goes from me out into the audience, there's no separation at that moment.”
“I'm very passionate about the connection we all share as human beings, in any race, age or station in life-we are all living in this great thing called life and our personal responsibility is to create a better place when we leave it”.
“Powerful music and lyrics are always everlasting when they are honest and candid”
