She grew up in Omaha, and spent her senior high school year in San Francisco. In her youth she studied classical piano, sang at her local church and in musical theatre, and also began songwriting.
After graduating from UNO in 1986, Allyson moved to Minneapolis, and concentrated on her jazz career. In 1990, she moved to Kansas City, where her jazz career took off. In 1992 she recorded her debut album, I Didn’t Know About You, which was so well received it was re-released on Concord Records in 1993. She subsequently recorded eight more Concord-released albums in Kansas City. In 1998, she moved to New York City with her longtime partner, classical music radio host Bill McGlaughlin, whom she met in Kansas City in the early 1990s.
Karrin sings in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish and you can see her LIVE this weekend at the fabulous Birdland!
