People keep saying that Alyse Black’s music sounds like falling in love. That it sounds like acceptance and sensuality and raw vulnerable humanness. With an aching, soul-touching voice, her award-winning songs inspire people to goosebumps and wrap them up in velvet.

Alyse recently ran a $31k Kickstarter to fund her long-awaited next album. She just finished recording that self-titled re-debut album with producer, Eric Rosse (Maroon 5, Gavin DeGraw, and Chris Isaak, as well as the breakthrough records of Sara Barielles, Tori Amos, and Anna Nalick), drummer Matt Chamberlain (Fiona Apple, Sarah McLachlan, Dido), and bassist Mark Browne (Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Jewel).

Alyse Black started out belting Billie Holiday, Beatles, and Bob Dylan tunes a cappella on the streets of Pike Place Market in Seattle. Since then, she's performed on NPR, recorded a commercial for Target, moved to Austin, won Billboard's Annual Songwriting Contest, had several songs placed in movies and TV shows, and toured the country playing over 700 clubs, theaters, festivals, television shows and radio stations.
