Dallas-native Allie Farris (age 24) moved to Nashville in January 2011 to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time singer/songwriter and pianist. Over three years later, she’s well on her way to turning that dream into reality, one tour, one show, one contest at a time.
Since living in Nashville, she’s recorded and released two EPs and is currently in post-production on a third project, her first full-length album. 2011’s EP “You Make Me Smile” was recorded with Nashville’s Rachel Loy, and features songs that she had written primarily during her brief stay at Boston’s Berklee College of Music in the fall of 2010. After a spurt of new writing in 2012, she spent much of her non-touring time in 2013 working on a new 6-song project with producer Ben Jackson, entitled “EP”, released in March 2014. Finally, the upcoming full-length album is the result of another prolific writing period in 2013, and a bold idea – record an album in a live club setting with an all-star band of Nashville players. That recording session came to pass in November 2013, and plans are to release the album later in 2014.
While not in the studio, she’s typically on the road, driving from town to town, gig to gig, meeting lots of new friends and supporters of her music along the way. In addition to her frequent stops at private house concerts, she’s played at venues like Bluebird Café in TN, Club Passim and The Iron Horse in MA, the Kessler Theater, Saxon Pub, and The Bugle Boy in TX, the Blue Door in OK, the House of Blues in CA, Rockwood Music Hall in NY, and Godfrey Daniels in PA. She also made her festival debut at the Fayetteville Roots Festival in 2013.
She’s shared the stage with David Wilcox, Gabe Dixon, Jimmy LaFave, Sara Hickman, Emily Elbert, Seth Glier, Beth Wood, Robby Hecht, Matt Harlan, Jeremy Lister, American Idol’s Matt Giraud, and John Fullbright – with many more to come. She’s particularly proud of her association with Dixon, which has resulted in a double-handful of co-written songs, including three off the latest EP, on which he also sings harmony vocals.
One of the songs she wrote with Dixon, “Other Side”, also plays a prominent role in her 2013 selection as a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk competition. She was also selected in 2012 and 2013 as one of the top 32 entrants to the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival song contest. Before moving to Nashville in 2010, she had a successful run of contest appearances, including being named one of the winners of the Wildflower Festival (Richardson, TX) song contest, and winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival/University of North Texas campus songwriting contest. In 2014, she was named winner of TX’s Songwriter Serenade competition, won second place in the Telluride Troubadour Competition, third place in the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Competition, was an emerging artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Semi-Finalist in the Unsigned Only Songwriting Contest, and, lastly, was a top 5 finalist in NPR's NewSong Competition.
Her journey as a musician and performer began with piano lessons at age seven, and eight years later she was writing and recording her own songs and performing them with her own band at various venues in and around her hometown of Dallas. She also recorded two EP’s during that time, which show her tremendous gift for words and music even at an early age, not to mention both a mastery of the piano and a powerful, expressive vocal ability. There’s no doubt that she was born to be doing exactly what she is doing.
