About Me

“What do you love about music?”

“To begin with, everything.”

-Almost Famous


Alison Becker_that mercury sound That’s me in a nutshell. Born into a family of extremely gifted musicians, I inherited all of the passion but none of the talent. As a young girl, when the lead guitar player in my dad’s band gave me three cassette tapes of Jimi Hendrix, I fell down the rabbit hole and haven’t ever looked back. My goal with this website is to share my love of classic rock & roll, its many and varied influences, and my take on current music that is carrying the torch, with anyone who feels like listening.

Born and raised outside Portland, Oregon I’ve spent time living in Seattle, Washington, DC, Austin, Texas (where that mercury sound was born), Minneapolis, and now Fort Collins, Colorado and my geography has come to play nearly as much of a role in this website as my musical interests.

Cheers,

Alison
