Rising Star: Alison Breitman
Alison Breitman, an adorable pixie of a New Yorker, has a voice that blows away most female singers Iâve heard in a long time. Combine the intelligence of Aimee Mann with the sultriness of Fiona Apple and the friskiness of Annie and you have a fantastic night of live music.
Alisonâs appearance doesnât do her voice justice. Itâs amazing that so much power is packed in such a tiny person.
I met Alison last night at a Changes show at Rothko in NYC. She told me that sheâs spending her summer in Chicago, trying to hook up gigs and expand her ever-growing fan base.
And hey, all you A&R peeps out there â get off your asses and get in touch with Alison. Seriously, this girl deserves a record deal.
