Album Winterspring is a glimpse into Wheeler’s inner world, brought beautifully to life with the help of her band

A composer and innovative vocalist from California, Allison Wheeler has made her professional start in central Europe and is a rapidly budding talent on the Czech jazz scene. She is a“composer of great sonic imagination” (Peter Quinn, Jazzwise magazine) and a versatile voice with a love for creative challenge. After being named Undergraduate Vocal Soloist of the Year by Downbeat magazine in 2018, she relocated to Prague, where she has broken free from her straight-ahead roots and is forging a new path. Although she cites influences such as Regina Spektor and Fiona Apple, she has been compared by critics to artists such as Becca Stevens (Jazz Times) and Gretchen Parlato (Jazzwise) yet creates a world uniquely her own.

Jazz-like in structure, her music seamlessly crosses genre lines, drawing influence from her love of folk tradition and the visual art world to construct a realm of imagination fueled by improvisation, nostalgia and a love for impressionism. Her debut album as a bandleader, “Winterspring,” was released in July 2022 under the UK label Ubuntu Music. The album weaves tales of love, light and loneliness into a unique blend of styles driven by sweeping vocals and colorful accompaniment.
