Alyse Young is a 20-year-old singer/songwriter based in Lafayette, Louisiana. Alyse's love of music began at an early age. By the time she was 5, she was already performing for family on her own pink, fuzzy carpeted stage built by her dad. Growing up with uncles and cousins who played guitar, Alyse was eager to learn. She started taking guitar lessons at the age of 7, and began writing songs at the age of 11. Alyse released her debut album, Unrequited Love, at the age of 14, followed by her acoustic EP, Unfamiliar, at the age of 15. She won the 2014 Songwriter Competition at Artmosphere Bistro in Lafayette, the 2015 Lafayette High School talent show, and was a top 5 finalist in The Times of Acadiana Best of 2015 (Best Local Original Music Solo category). Alyse was a semi-finalist in the 2015 International Songwriting Competition for her song "As a Friend", and she was honored to be selected to perform at the 2016 30A Songwriters Festival in South Walton FL. In addition, she was one of ten artists chosen for the Emerging Talent Showcase at the 2016 Blast on the Bay Songwriters Festival in Port St Joe FL. In 2019, Alyse was selected as a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in two different categories.
