Originally from Reno, Nevada, Allysa “LyssaLou” Singer began writing since the moment she was able to pick up a pen. However, it wasn’t until her senior year of high school that someone truly made her believe in her gift, beginning her love affair with poetry and since that moment she never looked back. Currently living in Birmingham, Alabama where she works full time as an Industrial Psychology professional but spends most of her free time focused on her passion of writing and community activism and change. She has been on the spoken word and poetry circuit for more than 8 years but has never truly focused on her art as a profession, until now. Even after the release of her debut project, “About Time – The Book & The Album” which went on to be nominated for and win various awards, LyssaLou holds true to what brought her to poetry in the first place; the desire to share with the world a piece of herself. For her, it is truly and will always be, about the gift and expression.
After an unexpected hiatus, LyssaLou returns with a vision and a pen that is more focused than ever. From socially conscious to downright petty, this album creates a poetic experience that anyone can relate to. It is clear she is on a mission to establish a vibe with thought provoking, passionately crafted lyrics and dope instrumentals; this sophomore spoken word album will take you on an inspirational poetic journey unlike any other.
