Alyssa Allgood has gained attention for “her technical control and creative imagination of her work (Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune). She has been described as “an emerging talent of considerable strength” by The New York City Jazz Record. Allgood was recently named “Best Jazz Entertainer” in the 2019 Chicago Music Awards. Her performance accolades include appearances at the world-famous Birdland Jazz Club in New York City, the Chicago Jazz Festival, and many more. She is the winner of several prestigious awards, including the Ella Fitzgerald Jazz Vocal Competition held in Washington D.C., and was a finalist in several vocal competitions, including the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Voice Competition, and the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition in Switzerland presided over by Al Jarreau.


“A fast-rising Chicago singer… Allgood combines an unpretentious stage manner with a sophisticated jazz sensibility.”
-Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

“An impressive bop-oriented singer…Allgood comes roaring out of the gate on her second release, singing with enthusiasm and power…”
-DownBeat Magazine

“…She is undeniably skillful at what she does. The expressive Chicagoan wears different hats, from scat singer to interpreter of familiar lyrics, to lyricist—and she shines in all of those areas on this outing.”
-The New York City Jazz Record

“A fullness of expression found in so few vocalists cut from current cloth…she is quintessential in every regard. She treats the art of wordless singing as it should be—which is to say, as an instrument in its own right.” 5-star review
