About

Alison Fleming is an English songwriter-recording artist, originally from Bramham, Yorkshire (home to iconic Leeds Festival) - and now living in the United States. With her singular approach she has penned hundreds of songs both solo and in collaboration.   

Viewed among musical colleagues for ‘clear-water’ vocals she creates organic arrangements with different feels and sounds. Influences include Bjork and Kate Bush. Though often regarded as 'one-of-a-kind', she has been compared to Annie Lennox, Edie Brickell, Carly Simon, Sade, Enya and Evanescence and on the electronic side to Bjork and Daft Punk, Zedd and Massive Attack. 

A songwriting partnership with musically renowned Tony Lowe (UK Composer, Producer, Guitarist), led to major London label A&R interest and has garnered three Lowe/Fleming albums to date, two of which made the music industry's GRAMMY® Awards lists - the first, 'All of the Above' in 2007 in eight categories including Album of the Year, Best rock song for 'Fires keep burning' and Song of the year for ‘Blue like the sky'; the second, aptly titled ‘Second Nature’, in 2008 in six categories .

In October 2008 'All of the Above' was launched with a live performance at popular venue 'Inn on the Green', Notting Hill London. This prompted rave reviews along with money was raised for the charity, 'Bollocks to Poverty'. Band members, composer/writer Tony Lowe (lead vocals, guitar, programming), co-writer Alison Fleming (lead vocals), Poppy Gonzalez (keyboards, percussion, backing vocals), Steve Gee (Bass) and Julian Stapley (Drums), Mixing Engineer Gareth Redfarn. Executive Producer Cheryl Stringall.

Third album 'Human Sleeping’ was created under the auspices of Tony Lowe’s associated independent record label, Sunn Creative headed by MD Cheryl Stringall, whereupon Alison signed onto the artist roster for the one album.

More recently she is credited as lyrical co-writer and for backing vocals as 'the voice of the ghost' on Tony Lowe and Mark Brzezicki’s symphonic prog-rock album ESP - 'Invisible Din', released on 11th November 2016.

Her solo music is a fusion of genres - the likes and influences of experimental pop, rock, folk, jazz, blues and electronic dance music.  Debut solo project of two albums, 'Freeway' and 'Freeway - The Remixes', were released through CD Baby (publishing and distribution), on 29th September 2017.

Friday 18th May 2018 a Double Album 'holding' both Freeway CDs released, for download-only. Alison says, “The two CDs are perfectly able to belong together because they offer different-takes on the same source material. And no doubt it influences the whole that both albums were created over the course of the same stretch of time. There are fun comparisons to be made - more than a few will have you guessing!”

Alison continues to write and record in her studio in a quiet backwater of SW Missouri, with two black cats Ziggy and Buddy and a cocker spaniel named Harvey.
