Alison Wonderland architects a world of her own design as its chief author, creator, and voice. The Sydney-born and Los Angeles-based singer, producer, songwriter, and DJ realises this vision at the intersection of future-facing pop, explosive beat-craft, and eternal dance rhythms.
Emerging in 2009 with regular night club sets around Australia and a series of remixes for everyone from Little Dragon to Justin Bieber, she ignited an international splash in 2015 with the full-length debut, Run. It reached gold status in Australia and earned two ARIA Awards nominations, for Best Dance Release and Best Video for “U Don’t Know”. She went on to debut her live set in the US that year at Coachella. Fast forward to 2017, she achieved the Best New Artist honour at the first-ever Electronic Dance Music Awards, while her remix of Dua Lipa’s “New Rules” soared to #1 on the Billboard Dance Charts.
Her sound has quietly inched towards mainstream ubiquity as the sonic sorceress received the “Highest Female DJ Billing Ever at Coachella,” captured #1 on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Chart twice consecutively, headlined sold out arenas around the globe, and clocked upwards of 100 million streams by 2018. Not to mention, Triple J declared that “both sonically and vocally, Awake is Alison's biggest work to date”, The Music called Alison “an intuitive songwriter, who wires into any sort of emotion”, and Stack Magazine named her an “Industry Leader”. In the US, Billboard gave Awake rave reviews whilst ELLE proclaimed her one of its “Women On The Verge,” and she garnered features from FADER, Glamour, Seventeen, Interview, and more. Simultaneously, Alison’s Radio Wonderland show clocked 5 million-plus iTunes downloads as well as broadcasting to over 20 countries and featuring prominently on the Sirius XM channel Diplo’s Revolution.
