Alison Pipitone and her band play a rollicking brand of roots rock. More than 20 years and 20 awards in, and the band keeps a' rolling along.
NOTES
This song is a mostly true story about Alison's mother. Mark Twain said, "Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't." Also, the sunny skies of 70's era Cardiff-By-The-Sea, California are easy to put into a song. This song features the Alison Pipitone Band: Pat Shaughnessy, Graham Howes, Natalie Howes, Marc Hunt. Special guests Damon Pipitone and Zadra Ibanez provide backing vocals.

Alison Pipitone writes poetry that rocks. She's one part cover girl, two parts Springsteen, one part Liz Phair and a bucket-full of Kurt Cobain. Blended together with a whiskey-laced voice, she's a powerful concoction of lyric-driven, folky alternative rock with sharp, 100-proof melodies and scorching full-on performances.

I'll Ask Her is her fifth record and it is a significant departure from …

NOTES
The Alison Pipitone Band came together as one in 2005. Veteran rocker Alison Pipitone was already working with drummer Patrick Shaughnessy when they were joined by upright bassist Rebecca Mercurio, and then guitarist Graham Howes. 2005 was the Year of the Rooster - flamboyant and expressive, and promised to be a time of opportunity and sentimental fireworks. And so it was.

Since its inception, the band - which Pipitone refers to as “a blessing”- has toured …

Home-made, state-of-the-art music to live by.
NOTES
"Shake It Around" was recorded at Alison's apartment on a digital 8-track recorder.

Then it was mixed in a "real studio" We mention this because because the result is amazing -- both highly intimate and sonically powerful.
