Fashion and beauty magazines have been swooning over singer/songwriter Alyssa Graham. However, her new full-length album Lock, Stock & Soul, is certainly proof that Graham is much more than just a pretty face. Graham has already been featured as an artist, “You Need to Hear” by Marie Claire, a critics’ “Music Pick” by Elle Magazine, one of iTunes “New and Noteworthy” singer/songwriters, “What you’ll love” by the Washington Post and a Critics’ Choice CD by The New York Times. The album is available now on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/lock-stock-soul-deluxe-edition/id489979359.
The striking brunette has just teamed up with the Huffington Post to premiere her newest music video for the album’s first single, “Til My Heart Quakes”: http://www.youtube.com/user/alyssagrahammusic?feature=mhee. The video, directed by Greg Gold, was inspired by the French 60s music scene and is a true expression of this talented young artist and her faithful team. Graham tells the Huffington Post in her exclusive interview, “for me, "'Til My Heart Quakes" is about squeezing out every ounce of love and passion from a moment and living with the consequences knowing the moment was worth it.”
About the Artist:
Alyssa Graham graduated from Ithaca College with a degree in Anthropology. She continued her education studying voice and contemporary improvisation at the New England Conservatory of Music. Graham pulls musical inspiration from her world travels through Brazil, India, Africa and Europe, from her love affair with guitarist and songwriter Doug Graham and her musical role models of the past and present. The new album, Lock, Stock & Soul, produced by Grammy winner Craig Street (Norah Jones, k.d. Lang, Madeleine Peyroux), is “somewhat of a throwback” inspired by her classic favorites : Neil Young, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan and other heartfelt musicians of the 1960s and ‘70s.
As a result of bringing Lock, Stock & Soul to life, Graham realized an artistic epiphany-ultimately, what matters in terms of both songwriting and performance is truth and authenticity, not technical sophistication. As Graham muses, whether choreographed dance moves or complex jazz chords, if it doesn't serve the song, it's a distraction.
