ALLISON ADAMS TUCKER
Given 4 stars by DownBeat and described by The Examiner as "lustrous in any language - a vocalist who clarifies every note within a hair's breadth”-the multi-lingual Allison Adams Tucker creates a unique musical travel memoir with jazz-driven songs in six languages that span countries and genres. "Tucker's voice is a beautiful instrument - one that floats, flies, and seduces with its no-fuss delivery.” -All About Jazz
Allison can be heard on national jingles, commercials and video games, and her interpretation of "La Vie En Rose" is one to the top downloads worldwide. As an educator, Allison has taught students of all ages in the US, Japan, Korea, and Spain, both with a focus on jazz/music industry, performance, and technique, as well as using music as a medium for language acquisition, confidence building, and speech therapy. She performs regularly in Japan, Europe, Mexico and around the US, including performances at the Blue Note New York, Ronnie Scott’s London, Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Los Angeles, San Jose JazzFest, Jazz Kitchen Indianapolis, Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines Festival, East Hawaii Jazz & Blues Festival, Takatsuki Jazz Street Festival Osaka, Body & Soul Tokyo, Le Baiser Sale’ Paris, Music Inn Rome, and Lucca Jazz Donna Festival Tuscany.
