DESCRIPTION Alyssa Barron draws from many styles of music to create portraits that, as she says, celebrate the existentialist spiritual introvert in all of us. Whether it's the raw wailing of the blues, the sassy exuberance of swing or the delicate lyricism of folk, Alyssa Barron's music is exciting and emotional.

Barron was raised in the Tucson desert, and from the age of three she was onstage singing. Having made an early career in jazz and blues, Barron went on to study music and theatre in England. Throughout her years in the UK, Barron did voiceovers, worked in theatre, sang in bands and developed a reputation for pouring everything she's got into her shows.
Stateside, Barron joined The Blind Lemon Peel All Stars, with musicians including Craig Kimbrough, Willie Ray Brundidge and D.J. Ison who between them worked with James Brown, Solomon Burke, the Doobie Brothers and Joss Stone.
Barron's debut EP was recorded live with the All Stars at the legendary Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood, and released in December 2016. Following the launch, Barron embarked on a tour of England, Iceland, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
In Los Angeles, Alyssa Barron often opens for the Dollface Dames Burlesque Troupe; her shows always infused with humor, emotionality and sass.
