Born and raised in the hills of rural western Pennsylvania, Alyssa was raised on classic country until the age of eleven when she was introduced to Led Zeppelin.
At the age of twelve Alyssa picked up the guitar and never looked back. Shaping her signature sound developed from her teenage years, Alyssa’s music is unmistakable. With influences that span across many genres, her lyrics bring you into the heart of the steel mills and the bucolic landscape of rural America. Alyssa began crafting songs and playing local open mics through her college years. Her raspy vocals help carry the stories in her song. Over the years Hankey released Shadowlands (2016) and American Spirit (2019). She has consistently toured across the country taking her music near and far. Alyssa has recently signed a contract with CommSounds to record and release new music in the near future.
