London based Allie K Stewart was born to Scottish parents in Australia. Her rich heritage, the landscapes of her childhood and the elemental forces of her homeland are distilled in her songs – steeped in the soul of the Celtic blues and as raw as the earth.
Allie has been described as “compelled to make music for the broken and the brave as a way to understand, to be understood, and to connect with people”.
She has an alternative sound she coins ‘Indie grit’ (aka ‘Indie Grit Balladry’) with a dose of blues, rock and folk-punk. A songstress of the intimate and rousingAllie is billed as “a soulful and powerful voice” (Uncivilisation Festival, 2011). Her emotive songs have raw edge and observational power and are delivered in a style that is both fragile and defiant.
