A Song, Just For You

Allie writes commissioned songs for her fans in September!

     In an effort to jumpstart my writing, and to use wisely the time that I have off in Nashville this Fall 2014, I've decided to reach out to my fans and ask if you would like a special song, written just the way you want it. Whether it's a story you hold dear that has never been told, or an idea that's been ping-ponging around in your head for the last few decades that you WISH could be realized, I want to write a song that you can have and call yours forever. 
     The first half of 2014 has been a total whirlwind for me: Tours in CA, PA, NY, MA, OH, IN, TX, and FL (just to name a few); Incredible contests and showcases I was lucky enough to be a part of (listed below); a new, beautiful EP and an as-of-yet unreleased full CD (but it is on Patronism!); and to top it all off, a brand new place to live in Nashville. 
     And now, in the last few days preceding my 24th birthday (on September 12th), I have my first full two months off in almost 3 years. I feel like there are even more things on the horizon for me, exciting and unknown, and because of that I need the encouragement and love of my incredible fans more than ever. It's very easy to turn back just before you turn a corner.

     But enough of my trademark sappiness--if you want me to use the songwriting tools in my Allie Farris Arsenal to give you a song about anyplace, anyone, or anything you would like, now is the time! (Psst..this could also make a special birthday, wedding, anniversary, or Christmas gift).

    Festivals and Contests!

     It was an incredible year for me when it came to festivals, showcases, and songwriting contests. I'm so proud to list my results!

  Patronizers and Donators

     As an independent artist, I am lucky to have creative control over all the music I write. But it also means that without the support of a record label, I rely on the money I receive from playing live shows, and the generous donations of my supportive fans. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Please follow this link to make a donation. Thank you! 
     Fans of mine can also get exclusive access to new demos, videos, blogs and more when they join, which is an artist support website I'm very happy to be a part of. When you become a patron, you can instantly access any and all hidden music I've uploaded. (Oh, and that secret CD I keep talking about? It's on Patronism!)
