Allison Speer was raised in the Bluegrass fields of Kentucky, and even a land as vast as that was not big enough to contain her talent. Her early childhood was spent enjoying spring vegetable gardens and sun drying autumn apples; tending cattle and crops, and developing a deep respect for God's creation gave her a down-home sense of self.

A concert by The Imperials was Allison's earliest introduction to Christian music. She watched as Russ Taff performed the songs, "Praise the Lord" and "New Creation," and was instantly passionate about the gospel word set to song. The passion she felt that night has taken her to the stage, performing alongside Russ Taff, and as a regular on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours. "It's so surreal to perform next to Russ; he and The Imperials are the reason I fell in love with Christian music in my teens. That means that Russ is a considerable number of years older than me, a fact I continually remind him of."

Her time has been spent touring with the Gaither Vocal Band and Gaither Trio, and with Mark Lowry and Wayne Watson, as well as keeping a hectic schedule of solo appearances. But no matter where she is, a consuming flame keeps her searching for ways to be used, as she says, "to help others identify with the suffering of Jesus and bring clarity to the word of God through music."

Allison’s zeal for communicating the Gospel through song led her to begin the GodSong Music Academy (, a four-day conference that in Allison’s words, “makes communicators and ministers out of singers.” She adds, “I have a passion for giving new performers the tools that they need to better minister the Gospel.” As a student of communication skills, her desire is to equip the next generation of singers and musicians to reach their audiences to their fullest potential. This conference has been held annually in Nashville, TN since 2008.

Allison's latest recording, "Writer," is her first self-penned project, featuring songs co-written with some of Gospel music’s finest writers. “Writer” showcases the depths of her musical abilities and her passion for presenting the Gospel with unique poetry and melodies. Her performance seems effortless but pushes you beyond the voice to allow you to become one with the intimate message. "Writer" is packed with scripture and Biblical truths for the ages. Allison says, "This is the first project I’ve written and it gave me a freedom of expression that I've never had before."
