About Alyssa Allgood:
Alyssa Allgood is a Chicago-based jazz vocalist, bandleader, educator, and composer who has been described as “assured and daring” by DownBeat Magazine and a “model of sophisticated song interpretation” by the Chicago Tribune. She brings a modern flair to the jazz tradition with her engaging arrangements, infectious swing feel, and lyrical focus of self-love, and human connection. Wielding her instrument with extraordinary nuance and depth, Allgood has established herself as a leading voice in Chicago’s vibrant jazz scene and beyond. She has appeared at such distinguished venues as the Jazz at Lincoln Center Club in Shanghai, Birdland Jazz Club, the Chicago Jazz Festival, the Green Mill, the Jazz Showcase and Winter’s Jazz Club. Allgood was named first place winner of the Inaugural Ella Fitzgerald Jazz Voice Competition, Best Jazz Entertainer in the Chicago Music Awards, and a Semifinalist in the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition, where she performed for a jury presided by jazz legend Al Jarreau. Allgood has released three albums to critical acclaim. Her 2021 release “What Tomorrow Brings” (Cellar Music) is her most sophisticated declaration yet, an introspective journey of self-discovery in the form of originals and refined interpretations of classics. The album received a 4.5 star review from All About Jazz and a 3.5 star review from DownBeat Magazine.
