Alyse Young debuts new album - Unfamiliar

Dec 02, 2015 04:51PM, Published by Staff Writer, Categories: Arts+Entertainment, Acadiana Life




Acadiana’s own Alyse Young (sophomore at Lafayette High) unveiled Unfamiliar, a five song acoustic EP. A follow up to her debut album, Unrequited Love, released last year, her latest work is an acoustic album with thoughtful melodies and lyrics about relationships and is performed with mellow, soothing vocals. Inspired by personal experience, this album has an indie folk sound influenced by Ed Sheeran, Vance Joy, The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons. 

Alyse started playing guitar at the age of 7 and began writing songs at 11. Over time, she persistently continued to write and hone her skills, finally sharing a few of her works with her chorus teacher (from L.J. Alleman School), who encouraged her to record an album. She took her advice, recording her first album at Travis Matte’s Kingpin Studios and then started to network throughout the community and play local gigs.

Alyse is gradually establishing a notable resume. At 15, she already has several years of public performances under her belt at local restaurants and festivals — sharing her originals and her unique laid-back interpretations of cover songs with her audiences. She won a songwriter competition at Artmosphere last fall, a Talent Show at Lafayette High School, was a top 5 finalist in The Times of Acadiana Best of 2015 (Best Local Original Music Solo category), and her songs are being played on local radio.

Young promotes herself through social media, where she has a strong following. Her music is for sale at her shows. Her albums can also be found at Lafayette Music and online via iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Google Play. She uses her revenue to purchase more equipment and to save for a car that will aid her in transporting herself to gigs. She tells FACE, “I’d like to continue to write and perform. I’m curious to see where it takes me. It would be a dream come true if I could make a successful career from my music.”
