Most jazz vocalists sing standards. Allegra Levy writes her own. From the plaintive title track of her boldly autobiographical debut album, LONELY CITY, to her critically acclaimed 2017 follow-up release, CITIES BETWEEN US, the 30-year-old jazz singer-songwriter has penned a lyrical collection of harmonically adventurous-yet-familiar originals steeped in the Great American Songbook. Levy, a native of Connecticut now based in New York, has been dubbed a "double-barreled talent" and “unquestionably one to watch” by JazzTimes magazine.
Her third album on the SteepleChase label, 2018’s LOOKING AT THE MOON, was named an Editor’s Pick in both Downbeat Magazine and JazzTimes
