Biography

“She may be the sister of Beck, but Alyssa Suede sounds more like a mix of Jewel and Alanis Morrisette.” - Rock is Life.com

This singer/songwriter is a natural talent.  Shortly after teaching herself guitar, she began writing songs and playing clubs in N.Y., Nashville, Los Angeles and Northern California.  Other performances include the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, and last year’s SXSW.

Before taking up music, Alyssa was a champion figure skater, training alongside Sasha Cohen with Olympic coach John Nicks, winning many gold medals such as the Los Angeles Artistic Champion.  But her true love wasn’t figure skating, so she decided to hang up her skates and take up the family business.

Her single “Falling from Mars” generated a buzz in the film community winning “Best Music Video” at the Memphis 2008 Film Festival, the Las Vegas 2009 Film Festival, The Tokyo 2009 Film Festival, and “Best Original Song” at the 2008 Feel Good Film Festival in Hollywood.

She recently finished a 3D music video for her latest single, “Hollow”, directed by Kim Furst, which premiered at the 3D Film/Music Festival at the Avalon, Hollywood. It won the IFQ (Independent Film Quartery) film festival in NYC and will be receiving an award for Best Music Video at Cannes this coming May.

Her debut EP, “Black and White in Color” can be purchased on iTunes, along with her acoustic EP, titled "Raw."

Lyrics

Fallout

Written By: Alyssa Suede, Phil Frechette, David Campbell

Fallout

Verse 1
Right now I feel like blowing up
I’d leave my fallout behind
If I keep giving inches will you take nothing but miles
Now we’re out of time

Chorus
If I called out your name would you cry would you cry
Would I call out in vain have you died have you died
I guessed you wrong I guessed you wrong
I guessed you wrong I guessed you wrong

Verse 2
Have you lost your face inside a mirror
I can see your vanity quite clear
Have you sold your soul to the social life cause
God knows what is worse

Chorus
If I called out your name would you cry would you cry
Would I call out in vain have you died have you died
I guessed you wrong I guessed you wrong
I guessed you wrong I guessed you wrong

Bridge
Should’ve listened to my heart
Instead of running blind after you
It was wrong from the start

Chorus
If I called out your name would you cry would you cry
Would I call out in vain have you died have you died
I guessed you wrong I guessed you wrong
I guessed you wrong I guessed you wrong

Right now I feel like blowing up
I’d leave my fallout behind

Ferris Wheel

Ferris Wheel

Verse:
I’m on a ferris wheel
The way you make me feel
I never pay to ride
I never see the other side
I like to be on top
And I won’t ever stop

I love it.......
Chorus:
Next time may turn out to be the
The last time aint no trying to change
My mind
Let’s go for a ride

Well one day you’ll hear everything that
I say you will learn to do it
My way
Let’s go for a ride

Verse:
I’m on a ferris wheel
The way you make me feel
You got me spinning ‘round
I like to fool around

I love it.......
Chorus:
Next time may turn out to be the
The last time aint no trying to change
My mind
Let’s go for a ride

One day you’ll hear everything that

Breakdown:
You and I can be together if you wanta play
I can be the queen bee and we can masquerade
I will dress you up and you can serve me lemonade
If you wanta talk about it take me for a ride
Chorus:
Next time may turn out to be the

Verse:
I’m on a ferris wheel
The way you make me feel
And when it’s going down
You like it when I make that sound

I love it......

1000 Times

Written By: Alyssa Suede, David Campbell

Verse 1:
I could tell you you’re beautiful 1000 times
Until I lose my breathe
And my eyes are all I have
To speak my love with

You’re the colors within my mind when I dream
You’re everything I see
And I drift right into you
So gracefully

CHORUS:
Whenever you’re near whenever you’re around
We both know we’re never coming down
So I’ll sing this song to you
1000 Times around cuz you’re so beautiful

VERSE 2:
I could trip over my own tongue when I try to say
I say soft words to you
Cuz when you’re near you’re so close
I feel I’m inside of you

I could hold you 1000 nights in my arms
It’s so simple that it’s truth
And each second moves my love
It’s only for you

CHORUS:
Whenever you’re near whenever you’re around
We both know we’re never coming down
So I’ll sing this song to you
1000 Times around cuz you’re so

BRIDGE:
Consume me, you move me, you see me throughly
Entomb the key to my heart, you free me truly
Cuz you’re so beautiful

Hollow

Written By: Alyssa Suede/David Campbell

verse:
Is this the way the world will end
I thought you were my friend
but then you cut me where
no enemy would try

We laughed
at all the hollow men
they were our new best friends
until the night would end
just you and me again

chorus:
You’re hollow
You’re all we ever hated
Our friendship faded
I’ll party with my enemies
but I can’t forgive a friend

It’s hollow
This feeling that we hated
This world has faded
I’ll party with my enemies
but I can’t forgive a friend

verse:
We said its easy to be strong
forget when friends go wrong
but I’m as weak as you
I’m throwing you away

chorus:
I’m hollow
I’m all we ever hated
Our friendship faded
I’ll party with my enemies
but I can’t forgive a friend

It’s hollow
This feeling that we hated
This world has faded
I’ll party with my enemies
but I can’t forgive a friend
Bridge:
Hollow eyes
Hollow men
Hollow cries
Hollow friends

chorus:
Your hollow
Your all we ever hated
Our friendship faded
I can party with my enemies
but I can’t forgive a friend

It’s hollow
This feeling that we hated
This world has faded
I can party with my enemies
but I can’t forgive a friend
