    Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe performs, live-in-the-studio, The Beatles beautiful In My Life. "There are places I'll remember/ All my life though some have changed..." wrote John Lennon ~ and, with Paul McCartney contributing on the musical side, the song marked a beginning of a more literary creativity for The Fab Four. This song is found on Allison Crowe's "Tidings" album (available on iTunes and music sites online).

    "In My Life, looking back at life... is perfect (for the season of joy and peace)." ~ Allison Crowe

    "You're about to hear from one of Canada's very best artists. I first heard her live at the lift-off for our beloved colleague David Grierson... I made her promise not to make us cry, but she sang this Beatles tune." ~ Shelagh Rogers, CBC Radio Host & Public Broadcaster (Canada)

    "A stone's throw away at the village hall, Canadian angel Allison Crowe gave one of the weekend's most magical moments, earning one of few encores for her solo rendition of Lennon's In My Life (a song inspired by Durness)." ~ John Lennon Northern Lights Festival review in The Scotsman (UK)

    "Songwriter and mistress of coversongs Allison Crowe beat out Johnny Cash, Ben Lee, Chantal Kreviazuk and Shawn Colvin covers of In My Life at the last minute. Buy or download all Crowe's albums via Rubenesque - her own label - and you'll know why this Canadian youngster is one to watch for the next half-century." ~ Cover Lay Down blog (USA)


    In My Life

    Words & Music by John Lennon/Paul McCartney
    As performed by Allison Crowe

    There are places I remember
    In my life, though some have changed
    Some forever not for better
    Some have gone and some remain

    All these places had their moments
    With lovers and friends
    I still can recall
    Some are dead and some are living
    In my life I've loved them all

    But of all these friends and lovers
    there is no one compares with you
    And these memories lose their meaning
    When I think of love as something new

    Though I know I'll never lose affection
    For people and things that went before
    I know I'll often stop and think about them
    In my life I'll love you more

    Though I know I'll never lose affection
    For people and things that went before
    I know I'll often stop and think about them
    In my life I'll love you more
    In my life I'll love you more

  • Newfoundland Vinyl Play all

    http://music.allisoncrowe.com/album/newfoundland-vinyl

    As Musical Director for TNL's production of "Newfoundland Vinyl: The Flip Side" at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival, the Canadian musician, born in Nanaimo, BC, on the Pacific, is active now in her Atlantic setting, curating and arranging songs for this Summer's GMTF cast.

    It's a rich and varied collection harvested from the island region's popular music and oral traditions. The album's 10 tracks traverse parlour songs to country tunes and folk favourites, songs of land and sea that share the strength and the struggles, the joys, heartbreaks and the humour of people.

    As well as being a premiere songwriter, musician and performer of original material, Crowe's recognized as one of the great modern interpreters of song - via her internationally-acclaimed and much-loved versions of songs by Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, and plenty more greats - Allison Crowe's singular performances deliver familiar and much-loved songs afresh and with renewed joy.

    Crowe's just returned to her home in Corner Brook, NL, after attending the World Premiere in New York City of "Man of Steel", the Zack Snyder-directed Superman epic in which she has a cameo - as a musician performing "Ring of Fire", a song made famous by Johnny Cash. MoS is currently the #1 box office draw on planet Earth. (Had things not gone so wrong on Krypton, it'd surely be a smashing success there as well.) Next she rolls on to Cow Head, in Gros Morne National Park -- and says:

    "I am so grateful to have been asked by Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador, two years in a row, to put together songs and musically direct for a show called 'Newfoundland Vinyl'. As part of the Gros Morne Theatre Festival, I get to work with extremely talented and fun people each Summer in a gorgeous setting - Cow Head, NL. From the vast and encyclopaedic sea of beautiful music to come from, and out of, Newfoundland and Labrador, here is a collection of some of the songs from this year's show."

    The GMTF season runs May through September each year in beautiful Gros Morne National Park. "Newfoundland Vinyl", conceived and directed by Jeff Pitcher and musically directed by Allison Crowe, is a perennial festival favourite. Check each Spring for the season calendar - and for word on when Vinyl is next on the boards!

  • Souling Play all

    Allison Crowe’s gorgeous voice brings tidings of comfort and joy with “Souling” – her 11th full album release.

    The artist, one of our greatest living musicians, singer-songwriters and performers, has always created authentic music.

    With this newest song set her voice is heard wholly a cappella.

    The songs themselves have a purity of expression – a 21st century take on music of faith and spirit – sounds and themes aired by carollers and soulers of old.
