Songwriters: Allison Wolfe
Born an identical twin in Memphis, Tennessee, Allison Wolfe was raised in an all-female household by a lesbian feminist mother who started the first women’s health clinic in Olympia, Washington. She co-founded a punk fanzine Girl Germs, an all-girl band Bratmobile, and third-wave feminist punk movement riot grrrl. Allison also sang in the bands Cold Cold Hearts, Deep Lust, Partyline, Cool Moms, Sex Stains, Ex-Stains and Cliquey Bitches (Scorpio Scorpio), along with initiating the non-profit music festival Ladyfest in 1999. Her iconic vocal delivery and endless on-stage energy — complete with splits! — has inspired countless other musicians.
She currently lives in Los Angeles where she hosts and co-produces a podcast “I’m in the Band,” does freelance music journalism, public speaking, teaching, DJ-ing and sings in the band Magic Witch Cookbox. A University of Southern California Annenberg Fellow, Allison completed a masters in specialized journalism in the arts with a focus on audio storytelling. She is also working on an oral history of riot grrrl book and podcast.
