Sweet Wednesday

Dave Falk and Lisa Housman, recipients of multiple songwriting awards, perform original songs about adventures, standing up for what you believe in, and those crazy mermaids you're bound to encounter after being out on the ocean for too long.

With beauty, humor, and passion, Lisa and Dave get audiences laughing, dancing, and singing along to their unique story-songs.

The pair share lead vocal duties and harmonies, with Lisa on guitar, and Dave lending his own brilliant style to the guitar, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, and violin.

Sweet Wednesday has been featured on over 100 radio stations and television shows, and toured nationally and internationally.

Allison Rose

Allison is a Rhode Island native singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who is turning heads in her local music scene with heartfelt lyrics, her pure voice, and a solid serving of humor and sass.

A classically-trained pianist and vocalist, Allison grew up on piano lessons and choir rehearsals, eventually choosing music as her college minor.

Lately she's been popping up at open mics and venues such as Providence RI's Brooklyn Coffee and Tea House, Pomfret CT's Vanilla Bean Cafe, and Tiverton RI's Sandywood's Center for The Arts. She was one of four finalists in the Rhode Island Songwriter Association's 2015 Performing Songwriter Competition, a top 10 finalist in the Tucson Folk Festival’s 2016 Songwriter Competition, and a top 3 Finalist in the Susquehanna Folk Music Society’s 30th Anniversary Songwriting Contest (2016). She released her debut CD, “Hope,” in November 2016.

Allison gives back to her community as a volunteer and board member of a RI-based nonprofit organization, RISING, which serves young adult and beginning songwriters and musicians by providing music education, mentorship, and performance opportunities. She is involved in the CREATORS expressive arts program with PeaceLove studios—a wonderful organization that seeks to help people create peace of mind through expressive arts and storytelling, as well as to reduce the stigma of mental illness.

Allison is a mommy to two beautiful children and by day has a fulfilling career as a mental health counselor. Aside from music, Allison is a photographer, and enjoys the ocean, a comfy bed, and dropping a good F-bomb.
