At 11:00 Mark talks with Alyssa Murray about her new EP, “Half & Half” that was released on May 12, 2021. Departing from her previous sound, the electronic, indie fusion of ‘Half & Half’ stands as a major shift in Alyssa’s artistic approach and perspective. Seeking full creative autonomy, she wrote, recorded, and produced all of the EP in her home studio. Alyssa has a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and has studied under the direction of Bobby Watson and Dan Thomas; as well as classical repertoire with Karen Kushner and Diane Petrella. Alyssa Murray will be performing live on Friday, June 25, 7:00 PM, at the FMK Social Gallery, 2202 Lexington Avenue, Kansas City, MO. More info at: www.alyssamurraymusic.com

The award-winning soulful rock and pop vocalist is writing new songs about resilience and courage.
