Product Notes

At the age of 16, Alysson Light, born and raised in Chapel Hill, is prodigious singer/songwriter. She started piano at age 9, cello at 12, and guitar only recently. She's been singing since she was 9 months old! Her first musical mentor (beginning at age 5) was her grandmother, a piano teacher and former singer with the famous choral director, Robert Shaw. Alysson wrote her first piano piece at age 10 and, last year, started writing several songs a month. She now has two CDs produced in her home studio. The first CD, 'Softly Fading Into Silence', is a cover album featuring the works of Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Natalie Merchant and Paula Cole. The second CD, titled 'Water' featured here, is entirely original works written, sung and played by Alysson herself. Many of the songs on 'Water' were inspired by Alysson's year spent in Utah in 1999-2000, where the dry climate of the high desert left her dreaming of the ocean ('Underwater') and showery days ('Rain') of her North Carolina home. Her most popular songs include 'Liquid Eyes' and 'Minna', both with a mysterious, poetic imagery that is supported by an unusual musical backdrop. Alysson's vocal style is amazingly mature, and the songs move the listener with her emotions and dynamics. 'Liquid Eyes' was number 1 for many weeks in North Carolina on MP3.com, and was #13 in the World on MP3.com in the very competitive Acoustic Rock Genre!
