Fan_3 (born Allison Lurie on December 4, 1987 in Sherman Oaks, California) is a former teen rapper\singer from the 2000s. The reason for her stage name because she enjoys groups with three people in them.
When she was 13 years old, Fan_3 recorded various songs on her lo-fi home studio set-up and one of her songs “What They Gonna Think?” was featured on the soundtrack to the Disney Channel TV series “Lizzie McGuire” in 2002.
After sending a few demos, a manager brought Fan_3 to the attention of Geffen Records and she was signed to the label by her senior year of high school.
In 2004, one of her songs “Digits” was featured on the soundtrack to the film “Shark Tale” and in December of that same year, she was featured on Radio Disney’s compliation album “Jingle Jams” with the track “I Love Christmas.” She was also featured on the soundtrack to the film “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen” with the song “Boom.”
In 2005, Fan_3 released her first single “Geek Love” which missed the Hot 100, but managed to peak at #68 on Billboard’s Hot Singles Sales chart and was also featured on the “Radio Disney Jams 7” compliation album.
During that same year, she released another single “Broken Home” (based on the experience of her parents’ divorce when she was young), but didn’t appear to generate a lot of success.
Fan_3’s debut album “Let Me Clear My Throat” was supposed to be released and a sampler of the album was released, but after she was caught smoking pot while on the Radio Disney Jingle Jams tour, Disney severed all ties with her and later on, she was dropped from Geffen Records.
After that, not much was heard from Fan_3 until 2008 until when she formed a pop\rock group called Shut Up Stella (featuring singers Jessie Malakouti & Kristen Wagner), but by 2009, she left the group after they were dropped from her record label. During that same year, she came out as bisexual.
As of 2009-2010, Fan_3 (who previously went under the name “Fannius” and now goes under another stage name, Allison Jayne) is working on new music and has released covers & original music through YouTube, MySpace and Vimeo.
