Born in Chicago on November 26th, 1965 the youngest of nine children
Bernard Allison was first introduced to the roots of black music and the
art of the electric guitar by his father, the late great Luther Allison.
Bernard Allison made his first appearance on record at age 13, when he played
on a live LP his father recorded in Peoria, IL. Soon after graduating from High
School, he began a three-year guitar apprenticeship in
high-flying Blues Machine. Bernard Allison also played in the late
Blues All-Stars and performed with
at the 1983 Blues Festival - one of the event's highlights. Along the way,
Bernard Allison picked up slide guitar tips from
and in the 80's also learned from the late
Stevie Ray Vaughan.
With those experiences under his belt, Bernard Allison moved to Paris in 1989
to live and play the blues with his father. Bernard Allison joined the
after a furious collaboration of "Father & Son" at the '89
Chicago Blues Festival. In 1999, two years after
passed away, Bernard Allison decided to move back to the States to go back to
his roots and push his career in his native country. Bernard Allison seems to
knack for igniting audiences, but he's no clone of his famous father. Bernard
Allison is definitely blazing his own path with a style that reflects a unique
mix of traditional and modern influences.
