Alex Vissia Trio

Folk-rock singer/songwriter from Edmonton, AB No Cover! www.alexvissia.com Entrenched in the roots of rock and country, but with a more sophisticated lyrical lean, Alex Vissia (VISS-ee-uh) will have you captivated by the time she sings her first sentence. Her vocal sound is reminiscent of the warmth of Brandi Carlile, combined with the sincerity of Serena Ryder's fearless delivery. After nearly ten years of writing songs and performing professionally, Alex has started a new chapter with the release of her highly anticipated first album as a solo artist, A Lot Less Gold. Alex draws poetic inspiration from her favourite songwriters, such as Josh Ritter, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), John K. Samson (The Weakerthans) and Neko Case. Backed by drums, bass, and playing an electric guitar, Alex resonates onstage with an energy that genuinely comes from within. Set to be released November 10th (2011), A Lot Less Gold promises to be an honest first effort deserving of attention. Catch Alex and her trio on tour this November and December for a Western Canada Tour. Joining her are Kurtis Cockerill on bass and Nich Davies on drums.
