BIOGRAPHY

Alison Hams is recognised as one of Australian country music's most professional and versatile performers.

Already known for her colourful onstage appearance and fine musicianship, Ali's public profile has expanded through features in broadcast medias including a 2004 live performance on Bert Newton's "Good Morning Australia" television show across Australia.

Alison's music has seen her perform nationally, in New Zealand and Nashville - and be a Grand Finalist in TOYOTA Star Maker, arguably Australian country music's greatest professional talent search.

"Second Fiddle" from her all-original album "Daisy Train" was a 2005 WINNER of one of the world's biggest songwriting searches - the UK Songwriting Contest judged from thousands of entries from professional songwriters all over the world!

As a proudly South Australian artist Alison has also claimed a prestigious S.A.M.I. (South Australian Music Industry Award), performed at the Young Australian of the Year awards at the Adelaide Hilton International - and in 2006 was presented an esteemed SA Great! Regional Arts Award award for her contribution to regional arts and music.

This success has continued with Alison and her musical partner (and husband) Mark Tempany winning a 2010 Advantage SA Regional Arts Award, a 2012 Australia Day Community Service Award - and the duo's major annual stageshow production LIONS Onesteel "Carols In The Park" winning Whyalla's 2010 Australia Day Community Event Of The Year.

Alison has toured with and supported many major recording artists including Charlie Landsborough (UK), Kate Ceberano, Lee Kernaghan, Adam Harvey, Kasey Chambers and Adam Brand, has co-written a song with Gina Jeffreys, and maintained a regular programme of appearances at major festivals like the Tamworth, Mildura & Gympie Country Music Festivals since 1994.

A graduate of the CMAA College of Country Music, Alison and her music have also made a real impression on innovative American guitar company Daisy Rock with whom she gained a product endorsement deal.

In December 2008 Alison and Mark played to over 35,000 people at Adelaide's "Carols By Candlelight" at Elder Park - in fact the two talented singer songwriters have primarily combined as a formidable acoustic duo since 2006.

Both Mark & Alison were inducted into the South Australian Country Music Hall Of Fame in Barmera in June 2007 and received the Country Music SA Industry Award in 2013.

Hot on the heels of her very succesful charity release JELLY BABY SONG, Alison and Mark received the 2014 Tamworth Peel Valley LIONS Club Award at the Tamworth Country Music Festival

2014 was the year that Mark & Alison's business Stormfront Productions celebrated 10 years of service in Whyalla, South Australia. Stormfront Productions now boasts not just the marketing & management of Mark & Alison's professional music careers - but also significant achievements in major event management, graphic art, website design, music tuition services to over 100 students per week and now an in-house professional recording studio facility.

2015 was also fruitful with induction into the BRAND SOUTH AUSTRALIA HALL OF FAME...and Alison was named the 2015 Australia Day CITIZEN OF THE YEAR in Whyalla.
