When Nashville Offbeat heard Alyssa Jacey's song, "Drowning Me," on iTunes, we had to learn more about this passionate songstress! "Drowning Me" was written when she moved to Nashville in 2012, and though it sounds like a sad love song at first listen, It's really a song about moving on to a better place in life when the time is right.
Alyssa is a prolific songwriter and live performer, with over 400 songs written, and around 150 recorded. She moved to Nashville five and a half years ago, and has taken the town by storm! In her own words, "When I moved here, I made sure that EVERYONE knew who I was!" Once a Hip/Hop dance instructor, she is currently living the dream of performing her music internationally, hosting TV shows, public speaking and owning her own artist development business, Image Twelve28.
Unique to her Pop/Blues/Folk music, Alyssa Jacey has her fans wear blue to all of her shows with the slogan "Bring the crew and wear your blue!" What started as a marketing campaign quickly turned into a charity initiative after her grandmother passed away. Alyssa made a promise to herself that she would donate a portion of her show proceeds to the Alzheimer's Association in memory of her grandmother, who never got to see her perform live. Her fans now show up to her gigs with dyed blue hair, their creativity keeping her shows fun and exciting!
Her latest release, "I Want It To Rain," has quickly become a fan favorite! You can dance to this new song now by checking it out on Alyssa's Youtube channel.
