2004-2005: Early Career[edit]

Music[edit]

In 2004, Fan_3 began releasing songs. One song she recorded, "Digits," was featured on the soundtrack for Shark Tale.[4] In December 2004, Radio Disney's "Jingle Jams" album featured a Christmas song by her, titled "I Love Christmas."[5] She also performed on the Radio Disney Jingle Jams tour. In 2005, her single "Geek Love," was a mild success, reaching number 68 on Billboard's Hot Single Sales chart[6] and being featured on a Radio Disney compilation.[7]

Acting[edit]

Fan_3 appeared in the television series "Darcy's Wild Life," playing herself in one episode.[8] She also recorded the show's theme song. Lurie also appeared in "Rap-Off," an episode Romeo!, as herself.[9]

Shelved Album[edit]

Plans were made for Fan_3 to release an album, tentatively titled "Let Me Clear My Throat," on March 19, 2005. A sampler of the album was released in late 2004, but was never released.[10]

2008-present: Shut Up Stella and new solo music[edit]

In 2008, Lurie formed Shut Up Stella, a pop/rock group, with Jessie Malakouti (AKA Eden XO) and Kristen Wagner.[11] She left the group after they were dropped by their record label.[12]

Fan_3 announced in 2010 that she is working on new music.[12] She began releasing covers and original music under another stage name, Allison Jane, through Vimeo,[13] MySpace,[14] and YouTube.[15]

Influences[edit]

Lurie has cited TLC, Destiny's Child, and Alanis Morissette[3] as some of her influences. She commented in an interview with PBS Kids that she got her stage name because she likes groups with 3 people in them.[3] Her music has drawn comparisons to Luscious Jackson, The Beastie Boys, and Fannypack.[16]

Personal life[edit]
