Allie Chipkin is a Poughkeepsie native singer-songwriter based in Boulder, CO. Allie's premiere album, Honey & Knives (2014), served as a fiery launching point for her creative journey. In 2016, Allie received Honorable Mention at the Telluride Bluegrass Troubadour's Contest, and in 2018, she was 1 of 3 scholarship recipients to The Planet Bluegrass Song School, sponsored by SoundBridge Music. Allie released her sophomore EP, Cascades, in 2018. 

Listeners draw comparisons to Sara Bareilles, Joni Mitchell, and Fiona Apple. Allie's soaring vocals will immediately catch your ear, and her gut-stirring lyrics will keep you around to listen. Despite digging deeply, Allie keeps life's sweet levity and fun fresh on her fingertips. Expect to chuckle and feel deeply - all at once - during her live performance.
