Australian-born and New York-based, singer-songwriter and producer Alyson Murray is a powerful and innovative performer who blends soul, R&B and jazz.
In 2019, Alyson started an online series entitled #AMsession, which features a collection of songwriting ideas and improvisations. The series streams on Alyson’s official social media channels via Instagram and YouTube, and ultimately inspired the release of her next project, The AM Session, co-produced by Gregory ‘Phace’ Fils-Aime.
Alyson released her debut record, ‘Breathe,’ in 2018. This saw her debut internationally, receiving airplay in Australia, London, Canada, and the U.S. Alyson was then invited to perform in celebration of the release at the prestigious Melbourne Recital Centre for International Women's Day in 2019.
Whilst celebrating ‘Breathe,’ Alyson also curated an intimate and exciting performance, 'Sassy: a Tribute to Sarah Vaughan.’ The sold-out performance during the Melbourne Jazz Festival at the renowned venue, Paris Cat Jazz Club, featured acclaimed saxophonist Marcus Strickland. Alyson then took the performance abroad, performing ‘Sassy’ at Minton's Playhouse in Harlem and at Diese Onze in Montreal.
Throughout her career, Alyson has been featured on Australian hip-hop records released by OBESE Records, including 'The Flipside' by Maundz and 'Anotha Dolla Anotha Day' by Rates. She has also released several singles on the imprint, including “It’s Taken A While” (2015), “Come to Me” (2019) and “See Me” (2020).
“This 6-track album (Breathe) celebrates the richness of Alyson's vocal tone and honest and energetic flare..”
