The best kept secret in music

Press


Alison Block is a clever young singer songwriter who is starting to make a splash on the touring circuit. She plays Manhattan and Long Island regularly. Money and Sex is her debut CD.

This CD has quickly become one of my favorite new releases. Ms. Block has a strong, pleasant voice, and the musicianship and production on the CD are very well done. What really hooks me, though, is the songwriting. The album is full of clever lyrics that make me think of Jill Sobule, except that from the sounds of it, Block is kissing (and kissing off) a lot more boys than girls.

There are 10 songs on the CD, and clichés aside, I can’t find a bad one in the lot. A few of my favorites include “I Don’t Wanna,” a breathlessly quick song where Block repeatedly stuffs 10lbs. of lyrics into a 5lb. bag (and pulls it off); “Skyler’s Song (Little Girls Don’t Cry),” which is essentially a desperate well-wish to a young cousin; and the title track “Money and Sex,” which contains lyrics such as “Money and sex make the world go round/It’s why porn stars marry millionaires/Why models and rockers always come in pairs.”

I’m guessing this CD will do a good job of finding its way to the public through indie stations, the web, etc. Alison Block’s web-site is www.alisonblock.com.
