Allison Weiss Was Right All Along is the sixth release, third studio record, and first full-length album from Athens GA-based singer/songwriter Allison Weiss. Her songs sound like your saddest memories sung to the tune of your happiest. They’re catchy, relateable, and filled with an unavoidable message of hopeless hope. Known for her “quirky charm”, sharp pop sensibilities, and avid online following, 22-year-old Weiss spent her summer raising money via Kickstarter.com
to fund the entire project through donations from her dedicated fans. A true DIY artist, Weiss does her best to harness the power of the internet to shamelessly self-promote, because who else is gonna do it? She’s also a graphic designer, has directed her own music videos, built this website, and wrote this third person bio. The secret is out! There’s no turning back now!
