About Allie X

Alexandra Ashley Hughes, better known by her stage name Allie X, is an emerging singer-songwriter from Canada. The ‘X’ in her name represents the variable in algebra which is unknown, which indubitably corresponds with the way she upholds herself – Allie is mysterious and discreet, yet intriguing and fascinating. She describes her age as ‘twentysomething,’ tip-toeing around revealing too much.

Though her face was fully revealed in her music video for “Catch,” Hughes is not quite comfortable with the idea of sharing too much information. She prefers to keep her life and parts of her face under cover, wearing peculiar and fashionable sunglasses. In an interview with Billboard, she stated:

I don’t see a reason for there to be a ton of personal information out there about me — at first, at least. I think the content should speak for itself.

In March of 2014, following the release of Allie’s single “Catch,” Katy Perry gushed over the ‘spring jam’ and her tweet spread Allie’s music like wildfire. Regardless, she remained a shadowed entity and continued to create and express her energy through her work. She also collaborated with ‘super-producers’ like Cirkut and Billboard, strangers who became friends after she made her move to the States the previous year.

CollXtion I was her debut EP, although she told Idolator she’d rather refer to it as an ‘experimental project.’ Released in early April of 2015, it served as the first of a series of ‘collections’ that each represent a unique experience with multimedia, song stems which fans use for their own creations, and comics detailing [The Story Of X].

There’s a constant usage of medical terms in her lyrics, which she says has something to do with her past, her subconscious, and where her brain goes. She studied these shadow-based concepts by Carl Jung:

The more you try to hide your shadow, the more evil the shadow becomes. So in many ways the art that I am making is an expression of my shadow self.

Allie’s first studio album, CollXtion II, was released on June 9th, 2017. The extensive promotional campaign began with the release of CollXtion II: Unsolved, a way for fans to vote on their favourite songs for eventual inclusion in the album.

Her second EP, Super Sunset, is set to be released in late 2018, after the release of singles “Focus,” “Not So Bad In LA”, “Science” and “Little Things”.
