Eighteen year-old Alyssa Baker unveiled her sophomore EP, Undone, on July 1st, 2016, to fan praise and welcoming media. Undone is a follow-up to her successful, self-titled, debut EP, released in 2014. Undone showcases Alyssa’s evolution as a songwriter and a new, more mature sound, described by Alyssa as, “moody dream-pop, with hints of electronica”. The five tracks featured demonstrate Alyssa’s lyrical strength and unique voice, and highlight her move away from her indie, folk-pop roots, towards a more alternative sound.
Undone was produced by long-time voice coach and mentor, Andy Toth, and co-produced by Alyssa. The first track, Invisible Days, inspired the EP’s title and is Alyssa’s favourite of all of the songs she has ever written. Fine, track #4, is often compared to Lana Del Rey; the catchy hook and non- traditional pop vibe make it a fan favourite.
Alyssa’s debut EP was released in 2014 and lead to amazing opportunities. Most notably, Alyssa performed on the historic Broadway strip in Nashville, Tennessee, and completed a 10-city tour of British Columbia.
Some of Alyssa’s most recent successes have included multiple trips to LA to collaborate with well-known YouTube musical sensations. A collaboration between Kurt Hugo Schneider, Alyssa, and three other artists, has surpassed 2 million views on YouTube and was featured on the popular online entertainment news source, Entertainment Weekly. Alyssa has also collaborated with Madilyn Bailey (834,000 views), and Christian Collins, also known as WeeklyChris (647,000 views).
In 2015, Alyssa was cast in the role she is perhaps best-known for. She plays Maggie, a driven, multi-talented, somewhat complex singer songwriter in the new TV teen drama, Lost & Found Music Studios, which airs world-wide on Netflix, Family Channel and CBBC. A spin-off from the sensation The Next Step, Lost & Found tells the story of young musicians participating in an elite, after-school music program, as they struggle to make it in the music industry, navigate the challenges of being teen-agers, and struggle to find their authentic voice. Popstar! online published a feature on Alyssa for her work in this role.
