Alyssa is a young actor/singer songwriter on the rise, whose credits span the genres of television, music and the theatre.Alyssa was drawn to the performing arts at a very young age.

Before her sixth birthday, Alyssa had performed at venues throughout Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and was scouted by a local talent agent. She began booking commercial work almost immediately.Her passion for both music and acting continued to grow. Voice lessons began in 2002. Her study of Royal Conservatory classical piano commenced at 8 years of age. Guitar lessons came two years later, and banjo, ukulele, and jazz piano soon followed.

From the floor of her childhood bedroom or music room, she labored for hours over lyrics and melodies. Her debut, self-titled EP was released in 2014, and lead to performances on the historic Broadway strip in Nashville, Tennessee, and a 10-city tour of British Columbia. Her most recent work, a five-track EP entitled Undone, was produced by long-time voice coach and mentor, Andy Toth, and co-produced by Alyssa. It showcases Alyssa's evolution as a songwriter and a new, more mature sound. Alyssa describes it as, "moody, dream-pop, with hints of electronica". Undone will be released in July of 2016.
