Alyssandra Nighswonger is inspired by the nostalgic, the quirky, the wanderers, the adventure-hounds; she writes songs to make your heart happy. She is influenced by many, but most notably by Harry Nilsson, Nick Drake, Peggy Lee and Billie Holiday.
She released her solo EP, When my Love Knot Slips..., and toured from Seattle, WA to Long Beach, CA via bicycle. Yes, a bicycle. She also performed as part of award-winning Long Beach group, The Dovelles, who toured across the United States and performed on Daytrotter and Marfa Public Radio. Other groups include: Lucky Penny, Poe & The Nightingale, The Balboa Amusement Company Orchestra, and Alyssandra and the Daymakers.
She is currently in pre-production for her best album, yet. [+]
