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. She released her debut album ‘Kissing Bug’ in 2007 and this was followed by 1:AM, Last Train to Hauteville (where she sang in French), Freternity, and I’ll Be Home For Christmas. Her latest album is called ‘Songs for Nature’ and is an enchanting musical love letter to the natural world and the composers, lyricists, and musicians it has inspired.

She sang at a star-studded concert for Prince William at Windsor Castle in England in advance of HRH announcing his engagement to Kate Middleton.
