Emily Alyssa Background Info

“I love music and words. I also love combining them to make sense of my life. Hopefully you enjoy the result. ūüôā ¬†I’ve been playing piano by ear for as long as I can remember, and I picked up the guitar when I was 17. I started adding lyrics to my songs when I was 15, and I haven’t been able to stop. Thank you so much for listening, and let me know what you think! ¬†My 2008 Front Porches EP was just re-released on Oct. 24, 2012. Go here for a free download: http://emilyalyssa.bandcamp.com/album/front-porches-ep. ¬†-Em” (via ReverbNation)

MarsBands Review

Emily AlyssaIf you’re a fan of passionate, intelligent lyrics and a brilliantly sweet and soft voice then Emily Alyssa is going to be perfect for you. ¬†Just a girl and her guitar, Emily turns simplicity into highly emotional and intricately worded poetic masterpieces. ¬†Remember when Jewel was cool (think “Pieces of You” album)? ¬†Remember how her songs were awesome because she was honest and passionate and sincere? ¬†Well that’s precisely what you’ll get from Emily Alyssa.

Emily Alyssa’s music takes some of my favorite things and showcases her mastery of them, such as harmony. ¬†It’s usually pretty subtle, just some simple backing sounds, but it’s perfectly done for each song. ¬†It doesn’t distract from the main attraction – the honest and passionate lyrics, one of my other favorite things. ¬†Now if you’ve read some of my reviews before you’ll know that I tend to have a tough time actually understanding lyrics. ¬†My ears don’t work they way most people’s ears do. ¬†Often times vocals just become part of the music and I couldn’t repeat a lyric to save my life. ¬†But with Emily’s music, I couldn’t help but hear every elegant lyric.

Emily’s passion may be music, but she may just be a poet and doesn’t know it (see what I did there?). ¬†Similar to Charlotte Eriksson, Emily Alyssa has an uncanny way with words. ¬†She has a way of taking even the simplest of things and putting them into words that simply boggle my mind. ¬†I’m always impressed how songwriters’ brains work, but when I stumble across people like Emily who really take it up a notch, it is a treat that I absolutely must share with you.

So do yourselves a favor and check out her songs via Reverbnation below and then check out Emily Alyssa’s YouTube videos as well. ¬†Enjoy!
