Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Steady Heart (2008)
Maybe a Joni Mitchell/Janis Joplin cross with shades of Laura Nyro, Eva Cassidy, Nina Simone, and Carole King?
Allison has a sweet soprano voice. Her music could be described as soul-folk, a blend of blues and folk, with healthy doses of gospel, pop, and jazz. Any one of these styles may play center stage on any given song. (JoAnn Whetsell)
Recommended first album:
Allison Sattinger is the only one we've heard
Brian Jordan—guitar, bass
Allison Sattinger's self-titled debut has a smooth, late evening vibe. She doesn't really sound like anyone else I've heard. Her music doesn't sound wildly new, but it doesn't sound like a rehash of anything else either. Rather, she combines her multi-flavored influences into something that's at once original and familiar. Since there's a different blend of influences (folk, blues, gospel, pop, jazz) on each song, the album has diversity in style while maintaining cohesiveness.
Thanks to JoAnn Whetsell for work on this entry.
