About the event
Join us Thursday, September 7, 2023, at Board & Batten, LLC (1408 Walnut) 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm as we welcome Allie Crummy to the stage for the first time.
Allie Crummy is a singer/songwriter based in Des Moines, Iowa. She has a passion for expressing her faith through music, and has served in her local community, regularly leading worship for the better part of two decades. In her songwriting, she is contemplative - a deep thinker who is well versed in and routinely inspired by Scripture. She does not write superficial or surface-level lyrics; rather her songs reflect the tension between what she believes to be true about God, contrasted with what she sees happening in the world around her, and hopefully will leave the listener with a thought or question to ponder.
Allie studied Music Education at Drake University, where she received a classical, conservatory-like education in vocal music. It was there that she stretched herself more as a vocalist and learned to appreciate the wide variety of singing styles. Her own singing style is mostly a mixture of pop and soul and is always brimming with emotion. Allie plays the piano and guitar and is always working to add more instruments to that list! You can hear her musical influences come out in her writing - from blues to bluegrass to classical - but in all her music, she loves to include honest lyrics that point to greater truths about God and finding hope in Him, baked into melodies that are fun to sing.
Allie has released four projects to date. Her first album, 'I Have Peace', was released in May of 2020, her second project, an EP by the name of 'Every Story Has an Author', came out in November of 2020, her third album, 'Honesty', was released on October 29, 2021, and she just released her fourth project, a self-produced EP called ‘Those Other Psalms’ in July of 2022. She is currently recording and releasing her third album, which will release in full in September of 2023, with each song getting its own release as a single, starting in January 2023.
