For some people it takes a lifetime to find passion and purpose, for Alissa Griffith however there was never really a question. Her passion is music. There is no question upon hearing her voice and lyrics that it's also her purpose. Alissa grew up in Anaheim, California just beyond the bubble of LA's music scene. The imaginary line was never of concern to Alissa. At fourteen she convinced her parents to let her ride the train 4 times a week into Los Angeles for writing appointments, which led to recording instantly. She was signed to a major publishing deal and her own tv pilot at 17. Soon after, she made Hollywood her home.
In 2007 she was asked to come to Nashville to do some writing. Alissa found a lyric in Nashville that she deeply identified with. So much so that she split her time between Nashville and Los Angeles for years until 2015 when she put roots down in Tennessee. You can hear a definitive mix of both cities in the the melodic sensibilities and soul filled vocals in all that she writes and sings.
Today Alissa is writing with many of Nashville’s top songwriters and can be seen bringing down the house around Nashville. She's currently working on a record with Jon Stone(Lee Brice, American Young) to be released late summer 2017.
