Love Vibrations
My one and only love
Comes love
Show me
It never entered my mind
Where I belong
That's all
A house is not a home
What is this thing called love
The night we called it a day
So Many Stars (Bonus Track)



What struck me first listening to Alyson's debut CD is how much she has matured as an artist in the few years I have known her. Her very natural musicianship shines through in this collection of twelve carefully chosen songs. As well as standards from the Great American Songbook, she has also picked some lesser known songs like "Where I Belong" with lyrics by Kurt Elling and reworked a very 'now' pop ballad by Maroon 5 entitled "Secret" with great results.

Alyson loves to tell a story - you can hear that she is 'inside' the lyric and loving the songs. Her choice of musicians is spot on and totally right to compliment her. The world-class Jim Mullen shines on all his featured tracks, especially on the standard "Comes Love".

Arrangements by Mark Edwards are fresh and exciting and his playing superlative on every track. Ben Castle's smoky tenor adds a great dimension especially on the title track 'Secret' and he really burns on "What is this thing called love".

All the songs have been given polished production, always supporting Alyson's vocal style.
Her singing is from the heart, delicate, real, and passionate. A really impressive debut!!
