Alison Crockett is a premier jazz vocalist in the Washington DC area. She recently appeared at the 2019 Silver Spring Jazz Festival. Eugene Holley of The Philadelphia Weekly writes, "Mix Nina Simone's urgency, Betty Carter's chops and Jill Scott's sass, and you'll get the bold and bravura vocalist Alison Crockett ... Simply put: She's the REAL DEAL."
Alison Crockett has paid her musical "dues" in full. On seminal recordings by King Britt, Blue Six, Us3, and a host of others, Alison's voice has provided a velvety, sensual finishing touch for cutting edge beats. Her voice dripping soul with generous helpings of jazz, gospel and blues, she has taken the baton from divas of the present and past such as Rachelle Farrelle, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Donna Summer, Elis Regina and Sarah Vaughn and forged a uniquely personal and singular musical vision.
Her newest project, released in November 2018, focuses on a new love: Brazilian music. After visiting the country she decided to mix her musical loves to create the project, “Obrigada”. Recorded in the city of Sao Paulo in the summer of 2017 with Brazilian jazz musicians Felipe Silviera, Thiago Alves, and Palinho Vicente, Alison has weaved a refreshing sound love of jazz, bossa nova, and soul that continues to highlight her fearlessness as a musical traveler boldly projecting her inimitable voice into the sonic future.
