Alison Crockett's international breakthrough in the 90s was as a featured vocalist on DJ/King Britt’s Sylk 130 project When the Funk Hit the Fan (and its smash hit “Seasons Change”). Singing Us3’s An Ordinary Day in an Unusual Place (and “Get Out,” an instant Top Ten single in Japan) brought Crockett to her jazzy and exotic, Brazilian influenced 2018 comeback EP Obrigada.
Crockett grew up spending long nights entranced by and absorbing her father’s extensive music collection. She developed her formidable jazz chops out of Temple University in Philly, gigging with stalwarts Orrin Evans, Matt Parish and Mike Boone. Later, after moving to NYC to pursue her master’s at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music, Crockett introduced herself to that vibrant music scene by fronting hip-hop jazz pioneer Greg Osby’s band.
She has spent the last two decades of her life promoting music and jazz vocal education. As a University Professor first at Temple University and then at George Washington University, Crockett has trained jazz and pop vocalists privately and through the jazz choral ensemble, GW JiVE.
