Sounds Like: Texas attitude, charmingly delivered by an artist who remains true to her roots.
With a talent as big as Texas and personality to light up the whole U.S.A., singer-songwriter Alyssa Micaela is ready to take on the world. Her debut single, “Getaway Car,” generated more than 3 million streams during its first few weeks of release. With influences like Miranda Lambert, The Dixie Chicks, and Linda Ronstadt, she has always gravitated towards songs with a strong female voice.
Alyssa grew up in Texas and her roots run deep in Odessa where her family works in the oil fields. She also has a deep appreciation for Latin music from growing up close to her Spanish-speaking grandparents. Her musical idol is as much Loretta Lynn, as it is Selena.
Her love for country music paved her way to Nashville, where she met Grammy Award winning songwriter, Liz Rose. Liz was a catalyst of change for Alyssa’s career once she took a permanent residence in Nashville. She signed her first publishing deal at Liz Rose Music, a co-venture with Warner Chappell, and signed an artist deal with booking agency CAA. With this team behind her she has independently released an EP, Cowboys Like That and opened shows for Eli Young Band, Jon Pardi, Aaron Watson and Willie Nelson.
Alyssa Micaela is as hardworking as she is talented. She’s writing every day in Nashville to continue her development as a writer and artist.
