A LETTER FROM ME TO YOU
Hi. I'm Alyssa. A lot of people know me as the girl who sings. The ginger with bangs. The girl who wears fun hats. Ya, I agree with them, but I'd like to think there's more to me than that...
I'm loud. I talk... a lot. I'm an over thinker. I feel things so strong and I cry at anything and everything. I'm a Taurus. I love shopping local and the colour yellow. I'm spontaneous. When I feel stuck in one place for too long I desire change so, I cut my hair really short or get my friends to pierce my ears.
In other words, I'm human.
It took me a long time to find out who I was and who I wanted to be. It stressed me out. I think that's why I love acting so much, getting to take on another persona and forget about the real world...
That's what music is to me. It's an escape.
I write songs like I'm writing in my diary. (Yes, I keep a diary.) I write them out in the moment, word for word, exactly how i'm feeling. My notes app is full of lyrics and voice memos full of chopped up melodies.
We all need an outlet. A place to feel free from the world around us. A place where the sky is a little more blue, the sun a little more warm and the grass a little more green. That's how I feel when I write. Free. I want to feel that way for the rest of my life.
I was scared to share my music for the longest time. It's personal, vulnerable. But I want to share my stories. My feelings. Because I promise there is someone else out there feeling the same things as you.
We all have our flaws, strengths, fears, hopes and dreams. But it's so important to remember.
We're all just human.
