Allana Southerland is a native of Jacksonville, Florida and is gifted in the smooth sound of the saxophone. Her style of jazz and new-soul vibe, with her group, Fusion, is synonymous with that of Kirk Whalum, Gerald Albright and Najee. Allana has performed all over the country and shared the stage with such legends as the Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars and Dave Brubeck. This one-of-a-kind artist also attends the University of North Florida as the only female saxophonist in the Jazz Studies program, studies Jazz Theory and Jazz Arranging, and is on the Dean's List, a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society and holds an office in Sigma Alpha Iota, a music sorority.
She was written about under the heading: Female Saxophonist Finds Advantage in being 1-Of-A-Kind The Shorelines Story from the Florida Times Union.
