Canadian singer and songwriter Allison Crowe returns to Paris as part of a tour launching her new album “Spiral.” Her music, described as acoustic cinematic folk indie pop, has an emotional punch seldom heard today. She is one of the best interpreters to come along since Joe Cocker. Crowe performs at the Auditorium du conservatoire Gentilly, Saturday, October 2, 2010 at 8:00pm, 2 rue Jules Ferry, 94250, Gentilly, France. Also on the bill that evening is Emily B. Green.

Expressing emotion is where Allison Crowe excels.  Whether covering other artists such as Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” or Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” or performing her own songs like “Crayon and Ink”, each track becomes alive and palpable.  Crowe’s organic and passionate piano-based sound infuses rock, jazz and classical elements often employing the ivories as a percussive instrument.  Her lyrics range from playful to raw, while remaining strikingly candid.  Hearing Crowe sing Joni Mitchell’s “River” captures the intensity of love’s regrets in a way that only few musicians could.

Crowe’s music can be purchased directly from her website // and is available from Amazon and iTunes.
