"First Call (Independently released CD, Pop) The debut full-length release from Nashville, Tennessee's Allison Bencar. This talented young lady's influences include classic artists from the past like Patsy Cline, Roy Orbison, and The Beatles...and we can hear traces of all of these (and more) on First Call. Produced by Chris Grainger (who has produced other artists such as Wilco and Switchfoot), this album has a nice warm and full sound without ever seeming too slick or overproduced. These songs combine elements from pop, folk, and country into a friendly and inviting mix that should please just about anyone who loves a good melody. Ms. Bencar has a super smooth voice and a presence that seems to transcend the words that she sings. Her songs could easily appeal to a huge segment of the listening population. They have a slightly familiar sound and yet...Allison doesn't really seem to be trying to sound like anyone but herself."
