Alison Crockett has paid her musical "dues" in full... She is perhaps the quintessential nu jazz/progressive soul singer of her generation and yet you may not have heard of her - - but you've no doubt heard her voice. On seminal recordings by King Britt, Blue Six, Us3, Landslide, John Wicks, Mathematics and a whole host of others, Alison's voice has provided the velvety, sensual sound of tomorrow's yerterday's; a captivating tone which evokes both the music of the past and that yet to come; dripping soul with generous helpings of jazz and blues. King Britt nicknamed her "Diva Blue".
Alison has taken her cues from divas of the present and past such as Erikah Badu, Jill Scott, Donna Summer, Diana Ross and Sarah Vaughn and so too has forged a uniquely personal and singular musical vision.
While living and performing in Philly, she met up with dj/producer King Britt (formerly of Digable Planets) and recorded the now classic "Season's Change" for the groundbreaking Sylk 130 recording "When the Funk Hits the Fan" (Ovum/Sony Music). She was also featured on four other genre bending tracks on the album including the first single "Gettin' Into It". Billboard loved her "throaty, diva-styled vocals."
After touring the US with Sylk 130, Alison relocated to Brooklyn, NY, where she continues to make her home and base of operations.
