The Internet is truly a wonderful thing. Every once in a while, it serves a melody that catches my ear. It’s a unique voice. It’s a passion unlike any other. In the days where music sounds mostly generic, refreshing voices like Alayna jump in the mix and changes everything you thought you knew about the kind of music you liked.
Hailing from the small town of Butler, Pennsylvania, Alayna moved to Nashville with a dream. With the help of her fans through a recent crowdfunding campaign, Alayna’s now working on her debut EP titled “Top Of A Dream”. It won’t be long before this girl becomes a pop-country household name. Get to know a little more about the girl behind the powerful voice here:

How did you get your start in music?
I started taking piano lessons when I was 7 and did that for many years. Eventually I picked up the guitar. A pastor at my local church taught me some chords and then I just ran with it. I wan’t allowed to have voice lessons growing up so I joined the choir, paid attention really well and did some choir festivals. It wasn’t too long before I was performing in front of larger groups of people. But fun act, I actually used to have horrible stage fright.
How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard your music before?
I would say my sound is country/pop/rock – like Miranda Lambert meets Kelly Clarkson.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
Where do you get inspirations for your songs?
A lot of my music is about real life situations. I usually draw from personal experience or things friends have gone through.
You recently ran and met the goal of a kickstarter for your EP. Can you tell me a little bit more about it?
Yes! It will be a six-track, fully produced EP with all original songs I’ve written or co-written. The release will be hopefully around April or May this year so be on the lookout for that.
What’s your favorite song you’ve ever written?
Do you have any tour plans for this year?
I’ll be playing a few local shows in my region but nothing big in the plans yet.
Where do you see your music taking you?
What would you say is the best memory on your musical journey thus far?
If you could play anywhere, where would it be?
If you could work on a song with anyone, who would choose?
Who are the people you admire the most in this world?
