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, Winter’s Jazz Club, the Jazz Estate and Noce Jazz Club. Allgood was named first place winner of the Inaugural Ella Fitzgerald Jazz Voice Competition, Best Jazz Entertainer in the Chicago Music Awards, a Luminarts Cultural Foundation Jazz Improvisation Fellow, and a Semifinalist in the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition, where she performed for a jury presided by jazz legend Al Jarreau.

She has released three albums to critical acclaim from publications such as DownBeat Magazine, All About Jazz, The Huffington Post and The New York City Jazz Record. Her most recent album, “What Tomorrow Brings” was released on Cellar Live in 2021 and is her most sophisticated declaration yet.
