On every album that this singer from Kansas has released since 1992, her numerous legacies come shining through. When she started out, there was a touch of Carole King in her voice, and some time ago, a healthy dose of Joni Mitchell. And it is in this latter reference, according to her staunchest fans, that her most attractive values of her artistic proposal are to be found.
Karrin Allyson grew up as an artist in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she played in a rock and folk-rock band called Tomboy. It wasn’t long before she signed a contract with Concord Records and, in 1992 she released her debut album “I Didn’t Know about You” which would bring her great joy, not the least of which was being compared by Playboy magazine with such vocalists as Shirley Horn or Ella Fitzgerald.
Ever since then, her fans have been treated to albums on a regular basis, and she has been nominated for all kinds of awards, including Grammys. Karrin currently lives in New York where she is often surrounded by such musicians as Bruce Barth, Adam Cruz, Steve Wilson or Jeff Johnson. Filled with original songs, “Some of that Sunshine” is still her most recent album to date. A quick check of the album credits shows that she was accompanied by such special guests as violinist Regina Carter and saxophonist Houston Person.
