Indie alternative singer/songwriter and self-proclaimed sadgirl, Alyssa Joseph, is not afraid to tell you how she feels. Pairing carefully candid guitar playing with intensely confessional lyrics, Alyssa finds power in her own vulnerability. Her writing is tender and honest, even blunt at times, but always deeply personal - proof that she’s still figuring it out, just like the rest of us.
A New Jersey native and recent East Nashville transplant, Alyssa draws influence from contemporary songwriters like Julia Jacklin, Sharon Van Etten, and Big Thief. Following the self-release of her 2018 EP, “[ir]rational” (which was recorded at the prestigious Miner Street Recordings, in Philadelphia, PA), Alyssa has spent the last few years cutting her teeth touring up and down the east coast, where she became a familiar favorite at Sofar Sounds in NYC, Boston, and DC.
With her latest single, “sadboy,” Alyssa asserts herself as a confident force to be reckoned with. Anticipating the upcoming release of her EP, ‘alive’, due out summer 2021, we find a dynamic and sometimes depleted young woman, fighting to dig herself out of the ground and reclaim the soil below her feet. At times, her sound is tender and quiet, at others - roaring louder than a freeway. Through this dynamic drama, her vocals land squarely at the front of every mix so that no matter what audible or emotional chaos ensues around her, you will undoubtedly know the core of who she is.
