There are singers and there are jazz singers. There are jazz singers and there are a few artists who bring more to the microphone – their life, love, heartaches and joy. Alison Burns is one of those artists. Her debut album, Kissing Bug, released in March 2007 was received with universal acclaim and became the first album by a Scottish jazz singer to reach the Jazz Top 10. So far she has played in far-flung destinations such as Tokyo, New York, Cannes, Italy and Shanghai and guested with The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and BBC Big Band. When not on the road she divides her time between Vancouver, Canada and Le Marche, Italy.
