The final installment of the Studio Album Feature series features a woman that is very near and dear to me... because she is my wife! Alyssa Hedenstrom is an accomplished musician, photographer, and educator. Alyssa is a multi-instrumentalist who mainly focuses on vocals and songwriting, but has performed on piano, guitar, saxophone, flute, and other instruments throughout the years. As an educator, she is getting her masters in ESL teaching and is bilingual, speaking Spanish and English fluently. She is also an accomplished photographer, being in-demand in the Dallas area snapping pictures for a large client list.
Alyssa's musical voice is very representative of her personality, which is how all musical voices should be. Alyssa loves melodic integrity, beautiful lyrics, heartfelt songwriting, and music that comes from a genuine place. Her voice is beautiful and smooth, soulful and refined, expressive and tasteful. She is equally at home singing unison horn lines and lead melodies with lyrics. Versatile but distinct.
As a singer, arranger, and songwriter, Alyssa recently recorded and released her debut album, "Merry Little Christmas," where she recorded a handful of traditional Christmas hymns and an original called "Christmas, To Me."
So, being the incredibly inspiring and hardworking person she is, I obviously love her for who she is beyond that, because I married her! Alyssa is one of the funniest, most delightful people I've ever met and I am so excited to have her wonderful voice featured on the upcoming studio album.
