Growing up in the prairies of Alberta, Alex Vissia (VISS-ee-yah) has been preserving things in song-shaped jars for over a decade. Based in Edmonton, Alex has been building an audience around Western Canadian coffee shops, music clubs and festival stages since her debut album in 2011 (A Lot Less Gold; November 2011).
It’s the combination of deft penmanship, deliberate arrangements, and honed vocal tone that make Alex Vissia stand out among a sea of young singer-songwriters striving for uniqueness. Alex grows into her sound with her second release, a whiskey-drenched batch of songs titled Young Love (May 2013). She’s taken her folk-country songwriting roots and added some dirt to the guitars, settled into a subtly weighted ensemble, and layered on backup vocals inspired by the girl-groups and folk-rockers of decades past to bring together a soulful, sultry, folk-alt-rock record.
