What surprises audiences most about 16 year-old singer-songwriter Alyssa Baker, is the unexpected blend of sheer talent and likability, wrapped into her petite, 90 pound frame. Recently featured on the radio program Youth in 57, Alyssa was described by host Jamie Cessford as “A very young music guest who’s about to blow your mind!”

Born in Calgary Alberta, Alyssa and her family relocated to Vancouver, British Columbia, when Alyssa was foour, about the time she started to sing. By thae age of six, Alyssa was performing for audiences on the Main Stage at Vancouver's PNE. By the age of ctwelve, she was composing original songs. In the years since, Alyssa has, at an early age, amassed an impressive list of credits. Alyssa recently returned from Nashville, Tennessee, where she played at historic venues such as "The Bluebird Café", "The Row Kitchen and Pub", and "Paradise Park" on Nashville's legendary Broadway, promoting her self-titled, debut EP, released on March 8, 2014.

Produced and mixed by Canasian record producer, songwriter and recording artist, Winston Hauschild, known for his work with Hey Ocean!, Hannah Georgas, The Peak Performance Project, etc., Alyssa's EP introduces audiences to her quirky, Indie-pop, folk-rock style. The four tracks featured tell the story of a relationship, from beginning to end, in a way that is uniquely Alyssa. Her first single, I Like You...or Something, released in January of 2014, is an upbeat-offbeat love song showcasing Alyssa’s unique brand of awkwardness. The song Timebomb, inspired by the John Green novel The Fault in our Stars, is a moving acoustic ballad about the turmoils of falling in love and saying good-bye. According to Alyssa, “Winston gave my songs the push they needed, and he was able to capture, in the studio, the ‘Alyssa’ in all of them.”

In 2013, Alyssa performed over 35 shows in and around Vancouver, BC. Highlights include: Performing in the singer-songwriter evening of Vancouver's inaugural Safe Fest music festival; being selected as a spotlight artist at the Massey Theatre in the Momentum Youth Arts Festival; opening for 604 Records recording artist, Kate Kurdyak; and being selected as a semi-finalist in the PNE Star Showdown. With an eye to local and global social issues, Alyssa also donated her time to perform in a four-concert series for STAND, a not-for-profit organization striving to end hunger and homelessness in BC; she has performed at fundraisers benefitting Free the Children; and, since 2011, she has supported arts opportunities for youth through her on-going participation with Awkward Stage Productions.

2014 is shaping-up to be another exciting year. The summer will see Alyssa's first Western-Canadian tour, with shows across BC and Alberta. You might also see her venture south, performing at venues in Washington and Oregon, USA.
