Allison Scull and Victor Martin have an acoustic groove -oriented collaborative style--singer-songwriter plus saxophone--for grown-ups and little people too.
Together they create a fusion of musical forms uniquely their own. They blend the sounds of jazz, folk, Latin, blues and R&B in original material and classic standards. Laced with the occasional French lyrics (Allison grew up in Belgium), they put an enitrely original twist to today's music.
As a duo, Allison and Victor have shared the stage with Tuck and Patti, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Craig Chaquico, Shana Morrison, Archie Lee Hooker, blues legend John Hammond, Acoustic Alchemy and The Blind Boys of Alabama. Their sound has also hit the Touchtunes scene--and can be heard on over 40,000 digital jukeboxes in the U.S. and Canada.
Their constant performance schedule has contributed to their growing fan base on the West Coast. Their music has struck a chord in the wine country of Sonoma and Napa and the festival circuit (Art and the Vineyard, Eugene; Napa Arts, Wine & Crafts Faire, Mt. Shasta Music Festival). Mostly performing as a duo, they have also developed a show with a stellar array of musicians.
As of fall 2010, their song "Esperanza" was nominated in Top 10 by the International Association of Independent Recording Artists and top 25 on Indie-music.com charts.They were also awarded a Community Achievement Award by Northern California's Siskiyou Arts Council.
