Allison is a flutist, composer and educator with an active career performing and creating music of multiple genres. Born in Chicago, Illinois, she moved to New York at the age of 10, started playing flute shortly thereafter and was self-taught until she began formal training at the age of 15. She is one half of the critically acclaimed flute duo Flutronix, which was praised by the Wall Street Journal for being able “to redefine the instrument.” MTV recognized Flutronix for “redefining the flute and modernizing its sound by hauling it squarely into the world of popular music.”
