Birthday, Hard Rock & Originals

hello! It's 11am on Tuesday morning & I'm still trying to wake myself up, that's been going on for about two hours now. I'm toasting raison bread, and multi tasking with my mouth watering at the thought, I have to look behind me to make sure I'm not burning it.... which I did! ;/ Typical, I'm so good in the kitchen. :/

Anyways I just had a big birthday, another year older... crazy how time flies! I still remember the birthday parties with my friends, building forts, getting barbie dolls as gifts & running around playing pretend. I made a big wish when I blew out my candles but it was the same wish I chose when I was my barbie doll stage, but this time stronger than ever. Big thanks to everyone who sent love my way and all the people there who made it memorable & special. <3 <3 <3 I'll never forget it, I love youuuu rockstarzzz!! 21st :*



I've got lots of things planned ahead and the future is exciting. I'm laying down my originals and hope to record them in DvD format, to introduce you to my new music. I'm working with a talented Video Producer friend from Detroit, and I know the project will turn out amazing. Looking to step into this soon & I'm looking forward to sharing and introducing you to the inside of my head. My note book is full, and I had to start a brand new one... fresh... the newest songs gotta be just that. ;) More to come, don't miss a beat.


Also performed at HRC- Detroit for "The Girls that Rock the Hard Rock Tour" with Fefe Dobson & Deluka, both crazy hard core performers. So great meeting & hanging out with them and love to everyone who came out. :) I'm playing out around Metro Detroit, more & more... please check my upcoming shows on my website www.alyssasimmons.com


I'm out... gotta eat this & play with Sadie & Abbey who are sitting comfortably close to my chair whining & and staring at me with their big blue eyes ready to play. Gotta love a dogs life, I swear! :) ha Peaceeee

Detroit Auto Show- Chevy Sonic Ipod Intro

Happy ALMOST Christmas & some LA Pictures for YOU

Hey there cutie pies! :) It's late as usual, I'm tired but refusing to put the effort into getting ready for bed... That’s just boring! ): How CRAZY, it's already the holiday season, literally only a week away before Christmas is here... I repeat ONE WEEK AWAY. I love everything about this time of year, the music, the lights sparkling on the snow, all the old Christmas movies, hot chocolate, & most important being around the people who matter most. Everything about the month of December seems absolutely 100% perfect, wish it didn't end so fast.

Upcoming DECEMBER SHOWS for me & my guys ((Keys: Marc Doiron & Percussion: Steve Tocco)) next week. We're going to be at the HoHoHo Down at Dooley's Irish Tavern - Sterling Heights, MI on Dec 21st at 9pm (21 and over)!! ALSO PLEASE COME OUT for our Special Christmas show @ Rosie O'Grady's in Chesterfield, MI on Wednesday Dec 22nd at 8:30pm, this one is an ALL AGES SHOW until 10pm so bring the whole family & have a great time.

LA!!!!!

I realize I haven’t written since I've been back from LA, which was insane! I learned a lot, met with some great people, and kicked some more doors open. During the day I was able to explore LA & the surrounding areas with my family ((they're the best)) then settle in for some late LATE nights in the studio, literally living off Tea, 5 hour Energy & Red bull. I recorded 5 songs out there and that’s about all I can tell you right now but I'm MORE THAN READY to make my trip back :)) Check out some pics below.
