Daughter's Dance



Allyssa's music reveals traces of her parents' unbiased musical tastes; it was common for her to hear James Taylor and Stevie Wonder in one sitting. Although trained in classical piano and voice, it was Allyssa's later introduction to jazz and world music that would inspire her artistic aesthetic. The result of this melting pot of influences is an eclectic, soulful sound laced with clever lyrics and musical twists.

Born in Chicago, Allyssa’s jazz dates featured sought-after players such as Steve Million and Neal Alger, and high-profile events, including the Women of Southport Jazz Festival. Now based in Boston, Allyssa has played in venues from Johnny D's to Riverside Theatre Works. Her work has garnered honors in the Billboard International Songwriting Competition and a place among Boston Magazine's "40 Bostonians to Watch".
