Midhurst artist Alyssa Tess

Alyssa Tess is an emerging singer-songwriter from the Georgian Bay Area.

Born and raised in Midland, Alyssa started her music career as a street performer in her small hometown.

Later when she moved to Midhurst, Alyssa expanded her performances to Barrie and beyond. Alyssa has been an avid performer throughout Simcoe County and the GTA in various venues and settings for the past 10 years. Alyssa recently graduated from Humber College with a bachelor of arts of Music in Voice (Toronto).

This summer, Alyssa has been performing as a solo street performer, gigging with her duo act and full band, and gearing up for the release of new music.

Alyssa released her debut EP Twenty/Twenty in 2017. Twenty/Twenty is Alyssa’s first professionally produced album and is a heartfelt collection of originals about experiencing first love and finding oneself. It is available on all music platforms and has been played on CBC Radio.

In 2020, Alyssa released an introspective single inspired by the emotional effects of the global pandemic. After releasing this song on all major music platforms, Alyssa knew there was more music she wanted to share with the world. Alyssa began preparing to go back into the studio to record new music.

On Sept. 7, Alyssa released Daydream, her first single in two years! This bubbly indie-pop song is all about being head over heels in love. With a bright electric guitar solo, lush three-part harmony and a smooth piano pad, this dreamy and whimsical song is sure to sweep you off your feet and get you bopping along with the beat.

“We are all finding our way back to normal in a post-pandemic world, and for me, that means finally getting back to doing the thing I love most: connecting with people through music, Daydream represents a more developed version of myself, my artistry, my songwriting, and my band-leading. Bottom line, this song makes happy. We all benefit those little feel good things in our lives, so I thought I’d share my little piece of happy with you," says Alyssa Tess.

Daydream is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other music platforms. Alyssa has upcoming performances in Innisfil, Barrie and Midhurst in September 2022. Follow Alyssa Tess on her website or socials to stay posted on future performance dates and other new music releases.
