Hello internet! My name is John-Allison Weiss and I'm making my first full-length record in five years. I guess time flies when you're changing your gender, flipping your life upside down, and questioning everything.
At the beginning of last year I was lost. When the pandemic hit, I packed up my Jeep and headed to the wilderness to find out who I really was and what I really wanted. After years of chasing Big Music Success I felt done. I needed to get back to the reason I was driven to create.
Music has never just been a job. My songs are how I find my way in the world as a gay, trans, tender-hearted southern expat, a gender outlaw, a romantic and a realist, a lover and a fighter. I write for me, and I write for anyone who might listen and hear themselves.
This new record is a product of all the writing I've done since the Big Shift. It's transitioning, ending a marriage, and pursuing a life on the road during a global pandemic. It's the heartache of lost love, the uncertainty of self-discovery, and the excitement of possibility.
I'm crowdfunding my new album because I'm tired of trying to convince music biz bros to care about me. This next chapter is about my community, Lower Key Music, and keeping independent art alive.
Are you ready? Let's do this!
