“Tartalia is to pop music what granola is to cereal.”
Indeed, Allison Tartalia is not your run-of the-mill songwriter. Her unconventional arrangements, brutally honest lyrics, and wry humor make her as unpredictable as she is unforgettable. Audiences have taken notice at clubs, colleges and festivals around the country. A classically trained pianist, Allison draws upon diverse influences to create her eclectic brand of orchestral chamber pop. In addition to her work as a singer-songwriter, Allison composes for both theater and film. The musical drama 1918: A House Divided, was produced by Theater for the New City, and she recently co-wrote music for the documentary 5,000 Miles From Home.
