Alli Bean
Debut Album Release Party – June 5, 2022 at Hermann's Jazz Club

Alli Bean is pleased to announce the upcoming release of her debut album, Outside Voice. This is a major move on a mission to share her message with a wider audience.

“The instrumentation... is truly a beautiful work of art, taking listeners into an alternate reality full of soulful vibes and inner peace. Alli’s vocal performance ... is phenomenal and the ambience to it is the perfect touch for the soundscape of this track.” says Gifted Balance Records about the album's second single, Two Birds; “We love every moment of this track.”

Alli Bean is a multi-award-winning Canadian powerhouse blues/jazz/pop-influenced songwriter and vocalist. Drawing influence from a list of artists including Wynton Kelly, Horace Silver, Fiona Apple and Amy Winehouse, her compositional style leans toward the bluesy funky side of the street, with a twist of jazz and a dash of sass for good measure.

As the pandemic restrictions have eased, Bean has returned to work with her pre-pandemic band mates, Lindsay Ward (Bass), Benjamin James-Groom (Drums), Corey Fenster (Guitar) & Alex Be (Backup Vocals) to present Outside Voice live, in person, for the first time. Alli & her friends would like to invite the public to join them on June 5, 2022 at Hermann's Jazz Club to celebrate her debut as a singer-songwriter. Doors open at 5:30pm; show starts at 7pm.

Reservations are available online or at Hermann's for $20. The show will be live-streamed for those who would prefer to enjoy from home. Fans of Tori Amos & Alicia Keys won't want to miss this show.
