Feeling a bit camera shy


Allie Fancher is a singer-songwriter from "The Natural State" (Arkansas). She has been living in Detroit for four years writing music and playing acoustic shows. This past year she has been writing and rehearsing with three Detroit musicians. Kraig Hallgren, a bassist who is more into melodic explorations than just playing root notes, gives the band an unexpectedly unique sound. Griffen Tull plays the electric guitar. Actually, he plays a number of different electric guitars and runs all of them through an extensive array of pedals, making Fancher's songs eclectic and interesting. Behind the drums is John Wright, a former member of a hardcore punk band. He shows off his chops and ability to execute at different dynamics, but be warned, once a song picks up he will be sure to show you that there is no doubt Allie Fancher and Her Band is a ROCK act.

Allie Fancher's voice is timeless. It is the same voice that would have captivated the audiences of vaudeville, early jazz, motown and the singer-songwriters of the seventies. Allie Fancher and her band's songs reflect the rich histories of the member's locales: southern gospel, raw Detroit soul in the vein of Candi Staton and Betty LaVette, and mid-western indie rock informed by the likes of Denise James, Feist, or Keren Ann. Only a voice such as hers could whisper over brushes and acoustic guitar and seconds later propel itself over crash symbols as both electric guitarist and bassist stomp on their overdrive pedals. It is time for a new voice in popular music. It is time for a voice that does not whine and does not scream or make excuses for failure. The nasally speech-song and faux-British accent of punk rock has has had it's time in American Rock. The whining and wailing of grunge led the way into the nineties has moved from being sick and tired to just tired.

It is the belief of Allie Fancher and her band that it is time for everyone to start singing again and we welcome you all to join us.
