Happy New Year, Friends!
Thank you for visiting my website.
Let’s spread the music, the kindness and the love!
We had a very busy 2016, and 2017 will surely be busy too — and different —
new songs, new places, pictures and videos, and as always, I am thankful for my blessings.
One of my greatest blessings is seeing YOU & your beautiful families out there along the way.
A little “Sweet Emma” from our recent appearance at Birdland for you. Miro Sprague, piano, Ed Howard, bass, Adam Cruz, drums & Steve Cardenas, guitar. Great band!
Please check out my new song, “Big Discount”, casually recorded during a soundcheck just after the election— more to come…

“Many a New Day” Reviews:
Associated Press: “Masterful”
USA Today: “Beautifully Nuanced”
NY Times: “She aces the tightrope walk of songbook reverence and jazz-vocal breeziness that often proves elusive on such an album”
DownBeat: “A brilliant album that bridges the worlds of jazz and musical theater”; “Allyson may be the perfect singer to reinterpret Rodgers & Hammerstein for a modern, jazz-aware audience”
JazzTimes: “An Exquisitely Thoughtful Trio Album, it’s Also an Important One”

» I’m excited to announce my new album ‘Many A New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein’ is now available for order on iTunes and Amazon!
This was a special album for me to record as I’ve been singing these songs all my life. I feel powerfully drawn to the world of Rodgers and Hammerstein because of the classic American stories and the gorgeous melodies. It’s near perfect music. I’m so happy to have these beautiful songs back in my life… and to play them with a rhythm section that’s truly a dream come true. Kenny Barron and John Patitucci bring pure musicality and so much heart to every note along the way. Hope you enjoy!!!
