Help me sell my fifth concert out in a row! Thank you in advance!
A. Google me! haha (Seriously, though, that is the fastest way to find all the sites I'm on) www.AlyssaJacey.com, Reverbnation.com/AlyssaJacey, I'm on iTunes, Spotify, there's an Alyssa Jacey Radio Station on Pandora, Facebook.com/AlyssaJaceyMusic, Youtube.com/AlyssaJacey and /AlyssaJaceyMusic, Twitter, Instagram, you name it.
Q. Alyssa, what do you hope to accomplish and where do you want to be 10 years down the road?
A. 10 years from now I'll be in my 40's! That sounds crazy to me, but my 30's have been AWESOME, so bring it on! By 42, I certainly hope to have made a name for myself on the musical side of TV/Film and commercials. My #1 goal right now is to get placement for my music and I want that to be ongoing. My 2nd goal is to maintain my mentoring business and continue helping to guide other artists in their careers.
Q. What is your advice for others who are starting out along the same path?
A. Don't you ever give up. EVER. You follow your heart and that will always lead you where you need to be. Stay grounded and realistic. Understand you may second guess yourself along the way, but that's just being human. You and only you can determine what your life will be like, and as long as you keep your head up and stay positive, GREAT things will continue to happen.
A. My grandpa who died when I was three, played clarinet and saxophone. He was a dentist, but played those two instruments for fun. It's sad I never got a chance to really know him, but I have to assume I must have gotten some form of musical talents from him! My mom has sung along to the radio for fun my whole life and I can remember thinking when I was younger, "My mom has such a pretty voice!" I would harmonize with her, way before I even stepped into the realm of singing. When I look back, it baffles me that THAT was what I was doing and yet, I never pursued it until nearly two decades later.
A. Yes, I do have a couple of press articles to list, thank you for asking!
