‘Yuletide Hideaway' garnered coverage from such key outlets as
The Wall Street Journal:
USA TODAY: http://www.usatoday.com/s...
The New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/pr...
DOWNBEAT: http://www.downbeat.com/d... and more.

The 13-song album, available via hard copy and digitally on www.karrin.com , is a combination of original Holiday songs and Christmas standards, and features Allyson's trademark elegant, dreamy vocals. From ‘Let It Snow' and ‘Winter Wonderland' to Allyson's stunning original title track and more, the album is at times playful, introspective, spirited - a timeless classic-in-the-making -- as Allyson's understated sophistication suggests a cozy, contemplative December evening by the fireplace, perhaps alone, perhaps with loved ones by our side. Listen to samples, here:

Allyson comments:
This is a wonderful collection of old and new material including some originals from Chris Caswell and myself, and featuring Chris on Hammond B-3, the great Lee Sklar on bass, as well as my beautiful colleagues Rod Fleeman, Todd Strait, and Gerald Spaits. It's just in time to give friends and family for their holiday season listening pleasure!
See you out there somewhere soon and thank you for listening!      With Love,  Karrin
