My friend and fellow central Texas performer Alison Papion has been on a wonderful upward trajectory that has been a joy to see from an objective viewpoint. After years building her name, stage presence and abilities with stints in the Grid Squid Entertainment collective and the live band StereoFiend, Papion took a break to pursue modeling opportunities and handle personal aspects of her life. 2021, however, finds her returning to the world of music with Dazed N Confused, the titular lead single from an upcoming solo project she plans to release. After hearing her sing over mostly hip-hop beats and funk-inspired live jams, it’s refreshing to hear her fall into a more traditionally modern R&B sound, and if the lead single is any indication of what’s to come from the full project, then I will definitely be waiting with excitement. Check out the single on iTunes, Apple Music or Spotify, and keep track of her for news on the release of the full project.
