Music has always been a family affair for Allie Joelle. Growing up in a house filled with over 10 guitars, a baby grand, and an ever-rotating mix of stringed instruments, it was inevitable that Allie would eventually pick up a guitar. Throughout elementary school, every car ride ended up with Allie, her brother, and her mother singing du-wop in three part harmony.
Fast forward a few years to the House of Blues Chicago. Captivated by a performance by Matt Nathanson, Allie decided right there, in the middle of the House of Blues in Chicago, that she knew what she wanted to do: play music and make the audience laugh.
Now, with the recording of a new EP under her belt, Allie is ready to take to the stage and share her passion with others. Most recently, she opened the Freesound Music Festival in Grinnell, IA, and opened for Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu at a stop on his solo tour.
Often compared to fellow Chicagoan Liz Phair, Allie Joelle writes, sings, and plays heartfelt songs that are tongue-in-cheek. Her new EP, "Better Left Unsaid," will be available on iTunes and CD late Summer '09.
