Mary Allison is a musical force to be reckoned with. Her compositions expose a perfect blend of originality entwined with deep, soul-spun spirituality. In May of 2015 Mary Allison was picked up by the award-winning NPR featured musicians, Montana Skies. Their lead guitarist, Jonathan Adams, produced, recorded, and audio engineered her latest Album, Om Day, which is co-written and co-performed with Michael Lott. Allison is known for her ability to shred the ukulele. She takes the tiny instrument to a state of fast-paced plucking and strumming when performing folk or classical music (as seen in the video at the top of the page). She is also widely appreciated for her meditation music often played at Unity churches and Spiritual Living Centers. Many people have expressed having inner-body experiences during her meditation shows. Because her tranquil music is so slow and thoughtful she is able to take listeners into a world of calm awareness. People have left Allison's shows feeling "high on life" and simply "wrapped in loved". It is Allison's desire for her music and artistic talents to act as tools for communicating the importance of love, meditation, celebration, and compassion to audiences around the globe.

"...AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN MISLED TO BELIEVE THE UKULELE IS A TOY..."
In reaction to the "Itsy Bisty Spider Song" music video: "What an awesome song and perfect video to capture it! Hopefully this is only the beginning and there will be more to see and hear in the future!

You don't know what a ukulele really sounds like until you have heard the talented Mary Allison play it!
"On one occasion in particular, Ali connected with the audience in a way I had never seen before. Inviting the audience--of all ages, backgrounds, etc-- to sing along with her, thus creating an atmosphere making me feel as though everyone was part of the same organism. I was amazed by her genuine ability to get people, who normally might not associate with one another, to sing together." -Chris K., Casablanca American School
