Baltimore -Washington-Annapolis area musician, Alison Thoms is a self-described “singer, songwriter, and strummer”. She is recognized by her dynamic, wide-ranging vocals and relaxed, gently percussive strumming style.  She brings a soulful and sometimes edgy style to her performance of original works and her interpretations of rock, pop, country, and blues songs written during the last seven decades. Her rock-a-chill manner is said to capture the likeness of Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt and Mary Chapin Carpenter.3

A longtime performer, Alison recently made her way to the recording studio where, to date, she has released 4 originals. Her first single entitled "Just Getting Started" has been well received by audiences and is the A side of her first vinyl…the beloved seven-inch record, affectionately referred to by her generation as a 45. An album is scheduled for release in the fall of 2023.


Alison regularly performs across the Mid-Atlantic region from the Eastern seaboard to the WV panhandle. She plays as a solo artist and as part of a duo named The Thoms’ Cats at a variety of venues that include festivals, private functions, house concerts & vineyards in addition to restaurant and bar sponsored live performances.
