2011 Nominee – Electronica/Dance Artist of the Year – 21st Annual LA Music Awards
Alyssa Bentley is LA’s fiercest new pop artist/songwriter. She has killer chops, amazing style, and catchy songs. Her music is pop with a fresh dance/rock/hip hop twist. Alyssa and her amazing band have owned the stage at several legendary venues, such as, The Knitting Factory, The Whisky A GoGo, The Cat Club, & King King. Most recently, Alyssa has had the honor of being a featured vocalist at Café Was in Hollywood accompanied by Blockbuster actor Jeff Goldblum on piano.
The first single from Alyssa’s debut album, “Brand New Girl”, has been dominating independent radio stations and has been placed in several feature films and commercials. The music video for “Brand New Girl” is NOT the typical work of an industry newcomer. As well, she is writing songs for licensing and placement with three reputable LA production companies, paving the way for Alyssa to become one of pop music’s hottest new songwriters.
Alyssa just returned from the AEP Talent Buyer’s conference in Vegas. Her performance was the talk of the conference:
“Alyssa Bentley was a true pleasure to work with at the Inaugural Association Of Entertainment Professionals Signature Event Showcase. Her professionalism and demeanor were matched only by her beauty and talent. She is the type of artist we strive to expose to our network of professional entertainment buyers.”
Ian Kirby, Founding Partner

Surprisingly, Alyssa’s background is very small-town USA. She was raised in Kentucky by her music-loving parents, and she has had a life-long love affair with music ever since. After spending a short time in Nashville, developing her musical style and songwriting, Alyssa was LA-bound. So far, the journey has been an amazing trail of songs. Hear it for yourself!
