    Alyse Black’s music is the intense, ballsy bare guts of Adele calmed by the soft and soothing lilt of Norah Jones. www.AlyseBlack.com Alyse Black started out belting Billie Holiday tunes a cappella on the streets of Pike Place Market. Since then, she's performed on Seattle’s NPR station, recorded a commercial for Target, moved to Austin, won Billboard's Annual Songwriting Contest, and toured the country playing almost 600 clubs, theaters, festivals, television shows and radio stations. Most recently, she won The Recording Conservatory of Austin’s Top Singer-Songwriter Contest. "Alyse Black owned the room. She wowed the crowd. We expect you'll be hearing a lot more from her soon." - Keyboard Magazine - "Everything necessary to take the world by storm." - Seattle Show Gal - "An acclaimed young songwriter moving up in the world." - Austin Chronicle - "Her voice is captivating: rich & velvety." - 106.1 KCDA - "Her songs swallow you whole, and there's nothing you can do about it… One helluva listening high." - San Antonio Current -
