Allison Lynch

Growing up with jazz musician parents, Allison began studying violin, piano, guitar and ukulele from an early age, incorporating them into her songwriting. Allison has performed at the Calgary Folk Music Festival, the Medicine Hat Jazz Festival and Brazilfest, and has toured Ontario as well as performing with the Malaysian, Winnipeg and Victoria Symphonies. She has also appeared as a guest vocalist with the Land’s End Ensemble, the Calgary Jazz Orchestra and the Tyler Hornby Quintet.

With an eye to the golden age of jazz and a finger on the pulse of the modern singer-songwriter aesthetic, Allison Lynch creates a singular compositional voice that transcends era through a deliberate mix of the modern and the classic. With technical chops earned from her Bachelor of Music in classical singing and composition, Allison fuses jazz, blues, folk, and pop influences on Skin & Flame, her intimate first release that features sensuous vocals, bluesy folk-uke ballads and newly imagined standards from the jazz repertoire. Currently writing for her second album, Allison is leaning into her guitar/ukulele accompaniment skills during this socially distant time.

Kristian Alexandrov & Shannon Gaye (Piano & Vocals)

Bulgarian pianist Kristian Alexandrov and soulful singer/percussionist Shannon Gaye join forces to present melodic, groove-driven material steeped in Jazz, Soul, and R&B tradition with a fiery approach to improvisation.

The union of these Vancouver-based recording artists and life partners evolved naturally over the years – the dynamic duo’s collaborations on stage and in the studio have resulted in six original CD’s and performances across Canada, the U.S., and Europe, as well as song placements in film and TV.

Music is a fundamental form of communication; a powerful way to stay

connected in these difficult times. We’re thrilled to be a part of Virtual Jazz
