Alison is a founding member of LARS. She is also co-director of Loud Applause Productions.

In her early years, Alison was a soprano soloist performing in weddings, concerts and a regular soloist with the Gyrlais Male Choir from the Upper Swansea Valley. Her singing career was compromised having to juggle a professional career as a paediatric nurse and family life bringing up three children. Her life has been encompassed by young people and her life skills are well placed for mentoring and nurturing the young singers of LARS.
