About Allyson Briggs…

I have always loved classic music. I grew up listening to what my parents played: Jazz, Big Band, Motown, Opera, Country, a very wide range of great songs and languages. I was always interested in other languages, and when I started researching my family history more, I wanted to explore my German/French heritage by learning to speak the languages as well. When I came to NYC, I met my Puerto Rican husband and naturally, I am now Boricua! His family welcomed me, and I fell in love with his culture, music, and of course, food. As we grew and shared our love of music, which is a huge part of our life together, I started incorporating what became “our favorite songs” into my own jazz band. Pretty soon, the traditional 1940s jazz band that I created, Fleur Seule, began expanding into a multicultural, multilingual explosion of show concepts and new ways to share great music with new audiences. I love communicating with people, and I do that through song. I think when you make the effort to learn someone else’s culture and native language, not only do they appreciate it, but you are able to communicate on another level, and learn from each other. That’s what it’s all about! We currently play music in 7 languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Yiddish, Italian, and Portuguese, in every style from jazz and bossa nova, to salsa and 1960s Burt Bacharach hits. My jazz fans know me as Fleur Seule, my salsa fans know me as La Rubia, but you can just call me Allyson. I’m here to take you back in time and to inspire you with great music from all around the world!
