Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

Hear Alyse’s song “Willowing” on MySpace.
“Her voice is captivating: rich and velvety.” —KCDA (Spokane)
After a childhood of performing in musical theatre and living abroad, Alyse began her music career singing on the streets of Pike Place Market in Seattle. One rare sunny afternoon, the pianist for a local group wandered by, stood captivated for a moment, and then explained that he needed another singer for a show that night at a local club. It was perfect. There was no looking back.
Alyse’s first album, 2007’s Too Much & Too Lovely, won first place in Billboard’s Annual World Song Contest in Jazz, among many other awards. Her 2009 alternative-pop sophomore album, Hold Onto This, was recorded and produced by Ryan Hadlock (The Strokes, Foo Fighters, Ra Ra Riot, Blonde Redhead, The Gossip). In addition her U.S. tours in 2008, 2009 and 2010, Alyse performs numerous major music festivals, colleges and conferences.
