Episode 002 - Alison Keslow

Performer, composer, session bassist and the leader of The Alison Keslow Group, she has shared the stage as well as recording credits with many artists, including Joan Armatrading, Jerry Marotta, Tony Levin, John Sebastian and Mindi Abair.

Alison has two solo albums - "Between Earth and Sky" released in 2003 more recently in 2014 "Bass Dharma".

Alison is currently on the summer faculty at Berklee College of Music in Boston and is co-owner with her husband of Sudbury School of Music in Sudbury, Massachusetts.

When we began discussing who to have on as our first guest on Above The Basement we immediately thought of Alison.  Apart from being our friend, she is an amazingly impressive player and composer and is in high demand in the Boston music scene.  

During our conversation, we talked about her Boston Music Award nomination, how she came to Boston through Berklee College of Music, her past and current projects and her thoughts on writing, working and her musical meditation.
