Allison Amling Weiss (born April 13, 1987) is a New York-based indie-pop singer-songwriter. In late 2009, Weiss created a Kickstarter project to press her first full-length. After reaching her goal in 10 hours and tripling it over 2 months, she became a poster-child for internet promotion and appeared in The New York Times,[1] Wired Magazine, and as a panelist at SXSW 2010.[2]

Biography

Weiss first picked up a guitar at age 14 in an attempt to become a punk rock star and impress her high school crush. Though the plan was somewhat successful, the teenage romance died after one short month. Her undying love for music lived on. Across the next five years, Weiss would move from her hometown to pursue a degree in Graphic Design[3][4][5]
