Allison Jayne Lurie (born December 4, 1987) in Sherman Oaks, California, is an American rapper, singer, producer, and actress, better known under the stage name Fan 3.[1] She released several songs in 2004, 2005,[2] 2009,[3] and 2010[4] though she never released a full-length album.[1]


2000: Discovery[edit]

When she was 13, Lurie cut several songs at her home studio; one of them, "What They Gonna Think," was chosen to be included on the Lizzie McGuire soundtrack.[5] She was subsequently signed to Geffen Records.

2004-2005: Early Career[edit]


In 2004, Fan_3 began releasing songs. One song she recorded, "Digits", was featured on the soundtrack for Shark Tale.[6] In December 2004, Radio Disney's "Jingle Jams" album featured a Christmas song by her, titled "I Love Christmas".[7] She also performed on the Radio Disney Jingle Jams tour with Aaron Carter.[8] In 2005, her single "Geek Love", was a modest success, reaching number 68 on Billboard's Hot Single Sales chart[9] and being featured on a Radio Disney compilation.[10] Fan_3 recorded "Boom" for the movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen starring Lindsay Lohan.


Fan_3 appeared in the television series Darcy's Wild Life, playing herself in one episode.[11] She also recorded the show's theme song. Lurie also appeared in "Rap-Off," an episode Romeo!, as herself.[12]

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 the full-length album was never released, as she was dropped from her label prior to its release.[13]

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.[14] She left the group after they were dropped by their record label.[15]

Fan_3 announced in 2010 that she is working on new music.[15] She began releasing covers and original music under her given name, Allison Jayne, through Vimeo,[16] MySpace,[17] and YouTube.[18]


Lurie has cited TLC, Destiny's Child, and Alanis Morissette[5] 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.[5] Her music has drawn comparisons to Luscious Jackson, The Beastie Boys, and Fannypack.[19]

Personal life[edit]

Lurie's parents divorced when she was a child; she wrote her song "Broken Home" about the experience.[5] She came out as bisexual in 2009,[15] and graduated from Calabasas High School.[15]
