One of the most multi-faceted minds in roots music, Alison Brown is a GRAMMY-winning musician, GRAMMY-nominated producer, former investment banker (with an AB from Harvard and an MBA from UCLA), and co-founder of The Compass Records Group which celebrates its 28th anniversary in 2022.
Although Alison began her musical career as a teenager in the Southern California bluegrass scene, she has built a reputation as one of today’s most forward thinking and innovative banjo players. She is known for taking the instrument far beyond its Appalachian roots by blending bluegrass and jazz influences into a sonic tapestry that has earned praise and recognition from a variety of national tastemakers including The Wall Street Journal, CBS Sunday Morning, NPR, and USA Today.
Alison's latest album, The Song of the Banjo, was described by Downbeat Magazine as a love song to her chosen instrument, with Alison “shining, thanks to her skilled playing, imagination and purity of heart.” Her anticipated new release, coming in spring 2023, features collaborations with an eclectic cadre of instrumentalists including Sierra Hull, Steve Martin, and Kronos Quartet on a set of Alison’s original compositions.
Alison is the recipient of the USA Artists Fellowship in Music and the Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association. In 2019, she was inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame. Alison serves on the Board of Governors of the Recording Academy and as co-chair of the Steve Martin Banjo Prize.
