Country-Pop singer/songwriter Allison Asarch recently released her new single “Neon Nobody” (co-written with Andrea Renfree and Ericca Latza). The song resonates with inspiring lyrics like "You got one-in-a-million shot in the dark at anybody knowing who you are, so keep the faith and sing your songs, wait your turn, no matter how long, “Neon Nobody” reminds us to keep following our dreams.
“Neon Nobody is about my journey coming to Nashville,” Allison explains. “I was once a small town somebody and now I’m a neon nobody. BUT, just because I’m a neon nobody doesn’t mean I won’t become a somebody! It takes time in this town. With perseverance, I know this dream will become a full reality.”
"Neon Nobody" follows her release this summer of “Cotton Dress” (written by Andrea Renfree and Peter Renfree). “Cotton Dress is a song about a boy and a girl who are in love and don’t care about what anyone says,” Allison explains. “It’s sassy, cute, and catchy, think Carrie Underwood’s All American Girl meets The Lumineers’ Ho Hey. I’m so excited for you to love this song! “Cotton Dress” with its charming lyrics is the perfect, storytelling song of a true romance.
Growing up in Houston, Texas, Allison Asarch discovered her love for music at a young age. As a child, she would perform at her grandparents’ annual Christmas talent show, but it wasn’t until she reached 4th grade that she knew she wanted to make a career out of it. “My music teacher, Ms. Teagarden, had everyone singing and smiling…including the boys! I loved the joy music brought to me and everyone else.”
Raised on powerhouse vocalists like Tina Turner, Shania Twain and Freddie Mercury, Allison began cultivating her own unique sound while attending Otterbein University’s School of Music in Westerville, Ohio. It was there that she began teaching herself how to play the guitar, while also taking piano lessons during her freshman and sophomore years. Allison was also a member of the school’s choir, training in classical opera and traveling to Ireland and Germany to perform.
In 2018, Allison moved to Nashville, Tennessee to start chasing her dreams. When the Coronavirus pandemic hit in early 2020, she seized the opportunity to start recording and releasing her own music. Heavily influenced by Taylor Swift, Allison combines Country, Pop and Jazz elements in her songs. In September 2020, she released her first single called "Taylor Made". That same month, she appeared on the Netflix Original show “Sing On!” where she took first place and won over $42,000.
2021 has been an amazing year for Allison as she released her second single, “The One,” in November of 2020 and went on to release “Sippin’ on Somethin’” in February of 2021, “Summer Style” in May, "Midnight Daydream", “Cotton Dress” in July and most recently "Neon Nobody". Now you can also look forward to Allison's album to be released in January 2022!
An advocate for female empowerment, Allison is building her team around talented women. “I know there are wonderfully accomplished women who play instruments, sing backup vocals, produce and create. I want to help shine a light on those women and organizations the best I can!”
Music has played an important part of Allison Asarch's life and as she says, “I found empowerment and guidance as a woman through music when I was younger and my goal as an artist is to create music that will one day do the same for others. My dream is to one day have an all female band up on stage with me.”
