Allison & Moon is a Boston-based power-pop-punk-emo band comprised of Allison Griggs (guitar/vocals), Mike Hayden (bass), and Courtney Peterson (drums).

The band bloomed from the seeds of Allison’s acoustic singer-songwriter solo project after she released her first full-band EP, The Sea independently, collaborating with Westfall Recording.

Of forming the band, Allison says, “I loved writing, playing, and singing…I was just missing the communal and social aspect of music, and I wanted to rock out. I’ve wanted to be in a band as long as I can remember, so I decided I would do it myself and the right people would join along the way. That’s when I found Mike and Courtney!”

After recording The Sea, Mike and Courtney joined and the band started playing gigs around Boston including O’Brien’s Pub and the Hard Rock Cafe. They released an acoustic EP shortly after, entitled How About You?

Allison & Moon’s music is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century sounds and references bands like Paramore, Daughter, Tegan and Sara, and ABBA as influences.

As a queer artist, Allison recognizes the importance of representation in music, and the band is excited to promote diversity, inclusivity, and to foster a community in music.

New announcements coming early 2019.

The Sea EP Announcement

January 27, 2018

Allison & Moon is the creative vehicle for Boston-based artist Allison Griggs.

Griggs has played music for years, focusing mainly on vocals, guitar, and her passion for the egg shaker. While she more often plays solo, Griggs also welcomes a rotating cast of local musicians to share the stage and engage with her deeply personal music.

“The Sea” is a three-song sampling of Allison & Moon’s first foray into sharing her music with the world at large, aside from local shows in the New England area. These three songs, all starting with the letter “c,” showcase a unique viewpoint through a nostalgic sound ( à la Paramore and Daughter).

The music of Allison & Moon is the echo of a familiar turn-of-the-century memory, while still showcasing a fresh female voice. Expect a new acoustic EP from Allison & Moon within the coming year, but until then catch the tunes on Spotify or in person at a live show in the Boston area.

Press Quotes

Allison & Moon are honest and able to capture just what it’s like to feel a little bit tangled in love and loss.
