Alison Shearer Quartet

Alison Shearer, saxophone; Kevin Bernstein, keys; Marty Kenney bass; Horace Phillips, drums

Since 2016, the Alison Shearer Quartet’s soulful, rich, groovy, and melodic music has quickly found traction in New York City. They have held a year-long Friday Night residency at The Williamsburg Hotel, collaborated with incredible artists including Jonathan Hoard, Melissa McMillan, Sami Stevens, Sammy Rae, JSWISS, Rabbi Darkside and Sirintip, and performed at Joe’s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, Nublu 151, C’mon Everybody, Canary Club, Bar Lunatico, and Wild Birds in Brooklyn, NY. 

Alison writes most of the music for the ensemble and the group rehearses regularly in pursuit of their signature sound. View From Above, their debut album, was released on February 18, 2022 to critical acclaim and was named Editor’s Pick in the March/April issue of JazzTimes Magazine.
