Praised for being able “to redefine the instrument…” (The Wall Street Journal), Allison has garnered a reputation for successfully navigating an array of musical worlds and appealing to varied audiences. She is also co-founder of the critically acclaimed urban art pop ensemble, Flutronix, known for “redefining the flute and modernizing its sound by hauling it squarely into the world of popular music.” (MTV Iggy)

An active composer, Allison was recently commissioned by the Texas Flute Society to compose a solo flute piece for the 2018 Myrna Brown Flute Competition and ‘cellist Amanda Gookin (PUBLIQuartet). Allison’s compositions, described as having a style that “allows multiple voices to share in the shaping of a music that is equally indebted to and comfortable in several musical lineages” (NewMusicBox), have been performed by members of the Virginia Symphony, Iktus Percussion, saxophonist Stacy Dillard, and broadcast on NPR, WNYC, WQXR, Tokyo FM and other stations across the country and internationally. With Flutronix, she is published by major music house Carl Fischer.
