My name is Allie Farris, and I love to write and perform my own songs.


This is a short version of the story so far:


-Here I am at 15 years old, when I had just started performing at small coffee shops in Dallas, Texas:

That was my fourth gig, EVER. Can you see the fear in my eyes?




-A year later, at 16, I found my closest friends who in turn became my band brothers. Colten Winburn, the bass, and Rich Sanchez, the drums. We took some pretty rock awesome pictures:





-A year later, at 17, I went to Interlochen Center for the Arts, a summer camp that changed my life, the way I write songs, and the way I perform. 

That's me with a full jazz band. Talk about a rush.




-When I returned home from Interlochen and turned 18, my awesome trio and I recorded a small EP that I called "All You Can Eat". From it, was a song called "The Dancer":





-My 19th birthday brought a new college town, Denton, Texas, and some new, updated band photos:


Stylin'.



-20 brought many, many things. First, a move to Boston, where I wrote many songs and was lucky enough to spend a semester at Berklee College of Music. Next came a move further south to Nashville, where I reunited with two close friends and extremely talented singer/songwriter/musicians, Grace Pettis and Scott Mulvahill. Up very late one night this past year, we arranged this and recorded it live the next day:





-So here I am now. I just turned the ripe old age of 21 this past September, and have changed tremendously in these past six years. But one thing hasn't, and will never change:


My name is Allie Farris, and I love to write and perform my own songs.


Please help me reach my goal and keep following my dream. Your support will mean a finished CD, a cross-country Tour, and a story that will continue.

Thank you,

Allie :)
