Born and raised in Wisconsin, Alyssia Dominguez is an independent singer/songwriter who is proud of her Mexican American roots. At age 15, she started learning to play guitar from her grandmother, who sang in a local Tejano band. This began Alyssia’s lifelong passion for music. Her teenage introduction to Taylor Swift brought forth a love for country music and opened her eyes to songwriting. By bringing a new twist to modern country, Alyssia strives to weave her Latin flair into her songs. Her smooth vocals, rhythmic guitar, and heartfelt lyrics can draw together the most diverse crowd. Alyssia’s latest single “Somewhere Near Mexico” does just that. She has also released a full-length album and has an upcoming EP slated to be released this fall.
