Alyssa Morrissey hails from Peterborough, Ontario. Discovered by songwriter, Cyril Rawson (Reba McEntire, Gretchen Wilson, Lorrie Morgan) Alyssa’s first CD, Let’s Not Call It Love received international airplay and charted in her home country. Her 2nd release, Way To Go was released in 2013. Alyssa is a two-time 2014 Wire Awards nominee, and a 2014 Winner!
Alyssa went from singing on boxes at age 3, to winning several singing contests and had her first professional performance at age 12. “Some of my icons are Shania Twain and Jennifer Nettles, for their personalities on stage and their ‘feel’ for a song. Taylor Swift is my personality idol! I think she is such a cleaver and creative person! I think country music is amazing. Everything about it is so real, whether it’s the music or the people singing it. It just feels like home to me, and I love being apart of it.”
Alyssa talks about her new duo with Matt Williams from Western Avenue and their new venture.
