Depth, nuance, and authenticity characterize Allison Mann’s singing whose choice repertoire of Jazz Standards also embraces Folk and an occasional touch of Classical.
Allison’s first CD, The Right Time, produced by Colin McCaffrey, was released in 2004 and was followed by a decade of immersion into family, homeschooling, a new role as director of Contemporary Dance and Fitness Studio in Montpelier, VT, and occasional music performances.
She is happily back on the scene—renewed, rejuvenated, and beautifully seasoned by the past decade.
Allison’s 2014 live recording, For My Mother and Father: The Best Songs of Their Times Vol. 1, is a prayer of thanks to her parents who came of age in the 30s and 40s, steeped in the music of the American Songbook.
Allison has performed at Discover Jazz Fest in Burlington, VT, MidSummer Fest and First Night in Montpelier, Vermont, Michael Arnowitt’s 2003 Ella Fitzgerald Night, Lost Nation Theater’s Performers’ Showcase, and countless clubs and private engagements on the North Fork of Eastern Long Island and in Vermont. Allison offers voice lessons to singers and speakers who want to free their natural voice by changing muscular habits and banishing restricting beliefs.
