“Magical”, “enchanting”, “healing”, and “transportive” are just some of the adjectives that have been used to describe Alison Wedding’s voice. The combination of her impeccable technique in jazz and improvisation, and her emotional intensity create a sound that is as powerful as it is musical. With one foot standing in the jazz tradition, and one in the realm of the modern singer-songwriter, Alison is taking female vocals in a direction that is truly unique. “This Dance”, her latest release, embraces these two worlds equally and with great authenticity. Michael League, leader of the groundbreaking group Snarky Puppy, brings not only his virtuosic bass- playing skills to the table here, but also his brilliant arranging and producing skills as well.
“Alison writes tunes with surprising and memorable melodies, interesting harmonies, and well-conceived lyrics, and she uses her voice and spirit to put all these parts together into one beautiful whole artistic sensibility.” – Chris Potter, ECM recording artist
"Alison is a sensitive and inspiring musician and composer. Her voice is pure, fluid, beautifully in tune. She is an amazing songwriter."- Lionel Loueke, Blue Note recording artist
