River's Edge Bands & Artists

Alyssa Hankey

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. Pulling from roots of blues and old country folk, her lyrics bring you into the heart of the steel mills and the boucolic landscape of rural America. Alyssa began crafting songs and playing local open mics through her college years in Indiana, PA. Her raspy vocals compared to Janis Joplin and Stevie Nicks help carry the stories in her songs.

In the past six years Alyssa's music has spread in and out of the western Pennsylvania region. Alyssa released two full length LPs Shadowlands (2016) and American Spirit (2019). Inrecent years, Alyssa has toured out of state in New York, New Jersey, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee. She also embarked a cross country tour called Westward Bound Tour 2018 with fellow musician Corey Kurtz and the American Spirit tour, playing shows from Maine to Georgia.

You’ll find both her albums on Itunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Google Play, Youtube, etc.

Alyssa is currently playing shows in and out the Western Pennsylvania region. Hankey is also working on new material and planning new adventures for the near future. Stay tuned!
