Currently based in London, Alessia’s new album “Synth o Matic” was recently released.The first single of the album is “Back Home”: a jazzy & groovy tune with a relaxed vibe, an acoustic sound and a catchy chorus.The song features one of the rising artists of the Philly Nu Soul scene, the amazing Jaguar Wright, already well known for her collaborations with The Roots and Jay-Z. The album track list includes songs, spoken word poems and features a couple of hit cover songs from the 80’s: she arranged the giant “Beat it” (M. Jackson) and “Into the groove” (Madonna) in a nu-soul style. Some of the tunes are vocal experiments, created with the help of her loop station, vocal harmonization and beat box built and used as a base to perform her spokens, taken from her popular blog.

She recently opened for “Poet of Nu Soul” Ursula Rucker, and shared the stage with the singer-pianist Frank McComb at Jazz Cafè for his Solo Living Room Concert. Her album has had airplay across popular radios such as Solar Radio, Jazz FM, and SoulandJazz.
