Alyssa has been singing since before she could talk, but she sang and hummed little notes up until she could. Her Dad was in multiple bands while she was growing up and she was always being exposed to music in the family, so naturally Alyssa started writing music too. She first learned piano at 3 years old, then learned to write lyrics and started performing with her Dad at his shows by the time she was 11. In crowded bars and loud practice rooms, Alyssa learned how to jam out young.
It wasn’t until high school did Alyssa start learning the art of composing and further more, producing. A Music Theory class taught her what she needed to be able to blast off when she got her first DAW system and a 3-track recording studio deal as her High School graduation gift. After putting out her first demo, “Alyssa Harrison,” Alyssa was hooked. Not even a year later did she write 5+ fully developed new songs and release them on her first EP, “It’s Only Natural.” Pop wasn’t what Alyssa grew up on, and definitely not what she thought she would grow up producing, but since then she's fallen in love with the freedom that has grown out of the pop genre in the last 5 years. Pushing the boundaries of the standard 4/4 pop song is her favorite thing to do.
Alyssa'a plans coming up are to release her first full length album, eventually a label, and make this her life.
"Why are you trying so hard to pursue this rigorous industry?" Most people ask, and she always responds with her go-to answer;
"This has been my life since before I could even talk, you know? So I don’t know much different."
