Chicago-based jazz vocalist Alyssa Allgood recently won the first Ella Fitzgerald Jazz Voice Competition held in Washington, D.C. She was also named a 2016 Jazz Fellow through the Luminarts Cultural Foundation in Chicago, a Top 15 Finalist in the 2016 and 2017 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, and second place winner in the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Voice Competition. Her debut album, Out of the Blue, reimagines the classic Blue Note Records era with original arrangements and lyrics. The album received wide critical acclaim and was hailed by eight different publications, including The Huffington Post, All About Jazz and The New York City Jazz Record. Critics consistently praised Allgood’s instrumental approach and accomplished scat and vocalese singing.
