Singer-Songwriter Alyssa Bonagura's Debut Album to Be Released, 10/30
"Love Hard," the debut album from pop singer-songwriter Alyssa Bonagura will be released worldwide October 30. The album includes the song "I Make My Own Sunshine," which received national attention when it was used in a Lowe's commercial earlier this year.
"Love Hard" features 11 tracks and is a collection of songs that chronicles the many phases of falling in love. Alyssa wrote, arranged, produced and performed all of the songs on the pop rock album. Award-winning producer, engineer and mixer John Fields (Switchfoot, Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus) mixed the album. "Love Hard" will be available at all major digital retailers, including iTunes and Amazon and will retail for $8.99. Tracks will also be available individually.
Alyssa has performed around the world, opening for the likes of Ringo Starr, The Who, Jason Mraz, Mike Posner and Paramore. Already a seasoned music veteran from growing up on the tour bus with her country music parents Baille & the Boys, the talented 24-year-old has been performing since the age of two when her Mother brought her on stage to sing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" for a crowd of more than 20,000 people.
The inspiration for "Love Hard" was a year-long romance, and is what Alyssa describes as a diary of the ups and downs of a relationship that starts with an instant attraction, moves through various challenges and ends with a broken heart and hope for new love. Additional tracks include "Warrior," written about a friend fighting cancer, "I Make My Own Sunshine," Alyssa's uplifting pop song that brought her into the national spotlight, and the hauntingly beautiful "Killing Me" featuring Canadian artist Tyler Wilkinson from Small Town Pistols.
