Flutist, composer, and educator, Allison Loggins-Hull, maintains an active career performing and creating music of multiple genres. 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 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)
Named an official Burkart Flutes & Piccolos artist, Allison has performed at The Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Banff Centre for the Arts, National Flute Association Conventions, the Virginia Arts Festival, World Cafe Live Philadelphia, WNYC’s Greenespace, and other venues and festivals around the world.
With playing described as “accomplished” (WNYC) and “virtuosic” (NewMusicBox), Allison has performed and recorded with premier new music groups including the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and NOVUS NY, as well as distinct artists from other genres ranging from Frank Ocean, Ski Beatz, Toshi Reagon, to David Virelles and more. With Flutronix, she has released two albums (Flutronix and 2.0), an EP (City of Breath), and is signed to Village Again Records in Japan. In addition, she has been featured in television segments on Telemundo, AriseTV, and The Daily Buzz, as well as an internationally broadcast ESPN Super Bowl commercial and the Black Girls Rock! Awards Show on BET.
An active composer, Allison was recently commissioned by the Texas Flute Society to compose 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, Jazz saxophonist Stacy Dillard, and broadcast on NPR, WNYC, Tokyo FM and other top stations across the country and internationally. She is the creator and producer of Diametrically Composed, a New Music USA grant-winning project exclusively featuring artists who are mothers and their stories. With Flutronix, she is published by major music house Carl Fischer.
