As a songwriter for more than 11 years Alyssa now has built repertoire of more than 400 originals in multiple genres, 100+ recorded, and a handful getting weekly International airplay from radio, Internet radio and podcasts across the U.S.
Her career started by complete accident after she moved to LA in 2003 to pursue her life long passion as a hip-hop dancer/choreographer. Friends heard her singing to herself, forced her to try karaoke one night, and the rest is history. One year later she released her first two albums "The Alyssa Jacey EP" and "Closed eyes... ...open Heart LP." Late 2005, she picked up a guitar and spent hours a day teaching herself so that by only after three short weeks, she was able to perform 30-minute sets accompanying herself. The following year "The Soul, EP" was released after being flown to Miami to record it. This was the first album Alyssa played acoustic guitar on as well as debuting her percussion egg shaking skills which would later turn in to an unexpected path as a drummer and percussionist.
Now 2015, over 1,300 self-booked shows performed, 7 (soon to be 8) co-produced and self-released albums (added were “Here’s To Change” 2010, “On the Spot” 2012, last years “Destined,” and coming August 25th, 2015, an all acoustic EP titled "Heart Breathe"), a multi-instrumentalist and mentor, Alyssa is 3.5 years into living in Nashville, making and sustaining a living as a full time solo artist.
