Bio: It all started with drums. Verne “VA” Allison and a gang of neighbor kids started their own Fat Albert junkyard band “Man, we beat on garbage can tops, sides of buildings, even bicycle handlebars. “I just liked it”. At seven his rapture brought him a set from Santa (Sears and Roebuck

catalog) Blue Sparkle! Total true joy from hands to feet! Along with his drum lessons he learned guitar on a rented ax.

Later, the energy and the magic of being in the studio watching the process of his father Verne Allison making history with The Dells, made him a producer…..and a songwriter…

With Verne a thought becomes lyric and melody, that can’t be complete without the rhythm, the groove, the drums He had to start singing, it was all around him. A memorable moment was on a Robert Townsend tour. Two mics on a stage with him, Dionne, Gladys, Stevie and Howard Hewitt. Hanging with the big boys and girls he thought “I am a SANGER too!”

He’s played every genre (behind and in front of the drums) from back alley blues to Vegas orchestra. While writing he has pondered “ can you be the one to heal someone’s sorrow, if you’ve never felt their hurt? You’ll never know until they hear your song”
