Alyssa Graham Celebrates 'Echo' Release

Vocalist Alyssa Graham's stunning new album, 'Echo' (Sunnyside) comes out next Tuesday, July 29th. She'll be marking the occasion with an in-store performance and record signing at New York City's Lincoln Triangle Barnes & Noble on August 4th.

From "Pictures of You, " a musical travelogue that traces the arc of a modern day love affair, to "Involved Again, " a previously unrecorded gem originally written some 50 years ago for jazz legend Billie Holiday, 'Echo' proves Alyssa Graham to be a singer of remarkable talent and range. Jazz.com gave her rendition of Paul Simon's "America" a 94/100, calling it "a standout performance" and going on to rave that "she projects herself completely into the psychological space of Paul Simon's song, singing with total honesty and directness."

WHAT: In-store performance and CD signing at Barnes & Noble (Lincoln
Triangle), 1972 Broadway (66th Street), New York, NY
