Alicia Wiley is a singer-songwriter cut somewhat from the mold of Fiona Apple and Alicia Keys in that she’s a trained pianist who broke out as a teenager by writing and performing her own songs. Wiley comes more from a jazz background, and that influence shapes the pop sensibilities of her third CD, Halfway Home. 3-Minute Egg captured Wiley’s CD release show at the Varsity Theater.

Got something to say? Go for it!
Hey… Great piece on an exciting new voice in Minneapolis jazz! I really got a sense of her music here, laid back and smooth, thanks for including so much of her music in this episode. Really enjoyed this one, Matt!
She is one of a kind – a STAR!
