“Canada’s finest songwriter” is how UK culture blog, ‘We Write Lists’, tagged Crowe upon release of her newest album, “Spiral” this Spring. And while the musician herself is not one to seek plaudits, it’s true that the singular quality, consistency and diversity of her creations over a decade of song recordings is increasingly appreciated. Her repertoire of original songs, such as “Effortless”

“When I listen to it, I think ‘This is real music, real singing’, it has the power, it's natural, not artificial and calculated like many songs nowadays,” says Lukasz Garbol, podcaster with Poland’s popular Radio Świdnik – playing Crowe’s song “Now”.
Allison Crowe’s appeal to international audiences, regardless of language or other differences, is explained by Jeffrey Pitcher, Artistic Director of Theatre Newfoundland:
"I hear so much music these days, too much for one person really,” says US-based music blogger Muruch. “I’m inundated with such a flood of sounds both good and bad that I sometimes forget what it feels like when a song literally produces chills on your arms. Then I hear Allison Crowe sing, and I remember the effect music is supposed to have on you. That awe-inspired rush, that indescribable feeling of communion between artist and audience. The gratitude that someone gifted has expressed through their art an emotion you personally lack the talent to articulate."
Muruch, a trail-blazer in online music communities – creating Audiogasms ('02-04) on Livejournal which evolved into Audiography (2004) – has just celebrated its tenth anniversary. ( http://www.muruch.com/
