Gone from Gunn to get some twang in Nashville

By Paul Freeman June 17, 2014

A 2012 Gunn High School graduate, Allison is studying at Nashville’s Belmont University. For her, the move to Tennessee was both scary and exciting. “I was applying to colleges. I was a singer-songwriter in high school. When I looked up Belmont, they had this unique songwriting major, in a music business program. And I thought that was very interesting. I had thought that only the Berklee School of Music had that kind of major, and I didn’t really want to go to Boston, because I don’t like cold weather,” Allison says with a little laugh.

Nashville singer-songwriter Hannah May Allison brings some beautiful country songs right from the genre’s capital to the Bay Area. Her tunes are simple in production, and done with a Southern flair reminiscent of Alison Krauss. Like many country singers before her, Allison sings about finding love, experiencing loss and finding her place in the world. Her newest song, Stay is a gorgeous, bare-bones, melancholy acoustic song about honoring the few people that stick around in a person’s life, when so many leave when the going gets tough.
