Allison's Invention "Sweet and Vicious," EP Release

Allison's Invention Brings Wonderland to Los Angeles: EP Release at Room 5 on August 20th

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE:

ALLISON’S INVENTION BRINGS WONDERLAND
 TO LOS ANGELES: “SWEET AND VICIOUS” EP RELEASE AT ROOM 5



“Wonder of wonders, this native New Yorker's debut CD sounds legitimately more jazzy than folky---smack-dab in the Laura Nyro/Ricki Lee Jones/Sophie B. Hawkins.”

- Chuck Eddy, The Village Voice




“A singer with a sultry voice."

-Marc Santora, The New York Times

"Alternatively intense and playful songwriter/pianist Allison Tartalia, of Allison’s Invention about to release her EP Sweet and Vicious. Tartalia’s sultry voice and honest, raw lyrics heat up this already baking weather.”

-The Deli, NYC

“Trying to pin down Emmy-nominee Allison Tartalia to one genre is like trying to capture a single atom in your hand.”

- Brett Ackerman, Beacon Pass



(New York City, NY) – Allison’s Invention, formally known by her given name, Allison Tartalia is glancing through the looking glass at a new path in her poignant career. An EP release concert to support her new album, Sweet and Vicious, will be held at Room 5 Lounge, 143 North LaBrea, Los Angeles, CA.

No stranger to the New York and Los Angeles Music scene, Allison’s Invention captures the singer’s brutally honest, and at times satirical lyrics that fearlessly portray her failed relationships and family struggles.

Sweet and Vicious, which Something Else Reviews says, “gives hope for the future,” was produced in New York by Grammy Award winnerMichael Leonhart, (Steely Dan, Lenny Kravitz) and in LA with vocal producer Marta Woodhull and was mixed by Brian Scheuble (Dave Matthews, Lenka, Rachael Yamagata). This lush melodramatic-pop album is already starting a spark in the music world.

Recently up for an Emmy for her work on the documentary 5,000 Miles From Home, Allison is able to use her vast music skills in multiple entertainment avenues. Her classical piano background and self-taught guitar playing, along with the eclectic instrumentation and complex arrangements, capture her unique sound. Her ability to engage multiple audiences with her fusion of jazz, chamber pop and folk makes her transcend typical solo artist stereotypes.

On this project Allison fills a void in the music industry. Allison is a woman who knows that every line is well earned war paint. We are given a space in which to reflect, grow and speak our own truths from a place of learned confidence, insight and serenity. Like the inspiration for her new pseudonym, Allison’s Invention, provokes her listeners to get back up after a big fall, and gain the confidence to start over on a new and improved path. Sweet and Vicious is a project that has the transcendent depth to put Allison’s Invention on the map.

Performance: Allison’s Invention Sweet and Vicious EP Release

Date and Time: Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 8PM

Location: Room 5 Lounge -143 North Labrea, 2nd Floor Los Angeles, CA
