Alyse Black started out belting Billie Holiday tunes a cappella on the streets of Pike Place Market. Since then, she's performed on Seattle’s NPR station, recorded a commercial for Target, moved to Austin, won Billboard's Annual Songwriting Contest, and toured the country playing over 500 clubs, theaters, festivals, television shows and radio stations. Most recently, she won The Recording Conservatory of Austin’s Top Singer-Songwriter Contest.
Alyse Black’s music is the intense, ballsy bare guts of Adele calmed by the soft and soothing lilt of Norah Jones with a splash of euphoric, pure Eva Cassidy soul. She stands accused of being an enchantress - of willfully beguiling, of defiantly creating a sumptuous and seductive world where every song sounds like falling in love.
Here's what others are saying: On Alyse’s live show, Keyboard Magazine says, “Alyse Black owned the room. She wowed the crowd.” Songwriter Monthly claims, “Alyse Black has a mystical beauty to her voice,” while 106.1 KCDA explains, “Her voice is captivating: rich and velvety.” “Her songs swallow you whole, and there’s nothing you can do about it,” according to the San Antonio Current. In summary, she has “everything necessary to take the world by storm,” in the words of SeattleShowGal.
After being diagnosed with a rare, incurable liver disease, Cami Lundeen turned to songwriting as an outlet for dealing with her newfound reality. Her energetic style is a creative blend of the bluesy-soul of Adele, an alternative rock flare reminiscent of The Cranberries, the quirkiness of Feist, and the edginess of Pink - topped with vocal stylings similar to Brandi Carlile. Whether it be an intimate performance, as Cami commands her guitar alongside her cajon percussionist, or fronting a full band, she lures you in with her sultry voice, and powerful vulnerability. Cami Lundeen recently recorded her debut album "Run Free" set to be released in August 2013.
