STLJN Saturday Video Showcase: Introducing Alyssa Graham

SOURCE: Published: 2010-02-21


This week, we've got some clips of singer Alyssa Graham, who will be making her St. Louis debut starting Wednesday, March 3 and continuing through Saturday, March 6 at Jazz at the Bistro.

The New Jersey native released her first album What Love Is in 2005 and followed up with her sophomore effort Echo in 2008. Along with Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Brazilian music, Graham cites singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Neil Young as important influences, and her synthesis of jazz, folk and pop seems likely to appeal to fans of singers like St. Louis' own Erin Bode.

The first clip shows Graham performing her song “Arkansas" live at Dizzy's in NYC. Down below, you can see the music video for “Pictures of You," from Echo. Below that, there's a brand new, apparently homemade clip showing Graham doing a solo performance of an unreleased tune called “Let's Start It All". In the fourth slot, you can see a short interview with Graham put together by Billboard magazine.
