Allison Crowe – At Home Here in Newfoundland & Labrador

Occupation: Musician/Singer Songwriter/ Musical Director / Wiener Dog Enthusiast

Place of Birth: Nanaimo, BC

Currently Resides: Corner Brook, NL

Where’s your favourite place in Newfoundland & Labrador to grab a coffee?

Brewed Awakening in Corner Brook! They make excellent Americanos! They have amazing baked treats there, too.

Where’s your favourite place to shop in Newfoundland & Labrador?

My favourite store in NL has got to be TVAL – they're a skin care and cosmetics company, and have a store in St. John's – when I'm there I always go way overboard. When I'm not, I order from them online and ALSO go way overboard.

What's the one meal you miss the most when you're away?

When I'm away from Corner Brook – I SERIOUSLY miss Newfound Sushi – it is SO GOOD! Their spicy broccoli roll is delish, as is their tempura cod! (and everything else there, honestly) I'm addicted to pretty much everything I've had there.

Where in Newfoundland & Labrador would we stand to see your favourite view?

Anywhere in Cow Head, looking out over the ocean, watching the sun set, (the sunsets are UNREAL) or standing OR swimming at Shallow Bay Beach on a hot sunny day– in the water – looking out on the ocean. (I just did both of these things the other day).

Name 3 things we’ve gotta do when we visit Newfoundland & Labrador:

1. Visit Cow Head and go see a show at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival!

2. Visit ANYWHERE in beautiful NL and take in tons of amazing live music or theatre. The arts are alive and rocking here, and you don't want to miss any of the amazingly talented folks from end- to-end of the island and region.

3. Go to Lobster Festival in Cow Head – it's seriously my favourite. (usually around Canada Day)

What makes Newfoundland & Labrador such a special place on earth for you?

I think the connections I've made here with my beautiful friends and the people I've met are what makes it so special for me in Newfoundland and Labrador, along with the beauty of the land itself, and the abundance of music and art, and getting the chance to create with those same friends. And Lobster Festival. I really love Lobster Festival. A lot.
