I wrote this back in April / May, recorded the video about 2 weeks ago.
I wrote this as a way to cope, a plea for more empathy & compassion.
I remastered my first collection of songs back in January / February. Now I can live with them being fully released. No more cringing during play pack, thank God.
I wrote this a few days ago, watching the rush to reopen and how upsetting it’s made me.
I see the fall
Everyone out for themselves.
The sacrifice was far too weak.
The first lesson is not one to teach.
We’d rather learn the hard way.
We need higher numbers – more lives we couldn’t save.
We’d rather never see their face.
You poor, poor thing…
Yesterday is a losing game.
And it makes me sick inside.
I’ll be proven right.
They’re all out for themselves, bringing fires of hell.
Witnessing the fall,
I wish I was wrong.
Today is my birthday and for my 30th I wanted to release an album I know I challenged myself to write and could be proud of. I am not disappointed and feel at peace with the best work I’ve done so far.

(and other major streaming services)
My latest album is on Amazon Music and numerous other streaming services (iTunes, Apple Music & so on) and I now do have a Spotify Artist profile with the album and a few singles I’ve had time to upload for streaming. Just search my name, Allyson Marie and my avatar should show with a link. The Night Will Pass on Amazon Music. Also I have it listed on the CDbaby store and was able to set the price myself, cheaper than on Amazon where they don’t allow me to set the price: The Night Will Pass on CDbaby
4th free collection. These are new recordings of the first and oldest songs I ever wrote from about 9 or 10 years ago. Rather than mix these with newer songs on an album, I want them on their own because they come from the same time mental space. Trying not to make these albums forever long either so this about 40 minutes…lol
I am putting together a short collection of very old songs I re-recorded and want to release together. This is one of my favorites of those early pieces. I’d had my first piano for less than a year and was amazed at how many ideas I was following through. It meant everything.
