Alissa Beyer is an alternative pop/rock singer-songwriter based out of Nashville, TN. Since a young age music has been her driving passion, writing her first song at age five. Seventeen years later, she is still driven by that same passion, evolving into the musician and writer she is today and drawing modern influences from early Avril Lavigne, Jimmy Eat World, Coldplay, and The Script.
After an independent release of her acoustic "Here I Am EP", Beyer spent 2011 traveling back and forth between Texas and California securing her first record deal and preparing for the release of her first full length album. Unfortunately, while she was experiencing the "good life" and the attention that came with it, Beyer also got a taste of the bumps and bruises that are so infamously paired with the entertainment industry. It wasn't long before she was completely dry of the inspiration that once kept her so full. Like most artists, her work was a reflection of herself as a human being. Once her creative control was lost, so was she.
Two years later, Beyer is once again an independent artist. After catching the attention of over 4.4 million YouTube viewers, Beyer's song "Dreamers", inspired by the Twilight series, earned its place as her first release as a newly independent artist.
Soon after the release of "Dreamers", Alissa took a turn back towards her roots and alternative rock influences like Jimmy Eat World, Foo Fighters, Paramore, and The Wedding. In July of 2013, she independently released, "Radio Symmetry", a pop punk influenced project, under the band name The Forty-Eight. While she continues to find herself writing all styles of music, The Forty-Eight has found it's way in to become Beyer's most focused on project.
