Once Alissa Hunnicutt picked up an ukulele, it soon became the tool to express herself musically on her own terms and opened her up to a wonderful community of musicians.
Alissa is an alternative folk singer. She considers herself a musical archeologist, digging for songs by lesser-known, indie artists, and creating new ukulele arrangements with her collaborator, Jared Jenkins. Alissa is currently recording her debut album, which is due out very soon.
Bringing her theatrical training to her work, Alissa teaches “Acting Through Singing: A song interpretation masterclass.” In this class, participants discover the personal connection to their songs. Really telling the story helps performers deal with the nerves of getting up and singing in front of people, and has the added benefit of actually releasing the vocal instrument. If you’ve ever wanted to sing at an open mic, this is the place to start. If you’re a seasoned performer, this is how to take your material to the next level. If you just love to sit on the couch and sing, this method will help you find a personal connection to the lyric and singing your songs will mean so much more to you. Look for Alissa’s masterclass near you and sing your truth!
Alissa holds a Master of Music degree from Manhattan School of Music in vocal performance. She is a member of Actor’s Equity and SAG/AFTRA. She’s also an accomplished voiceover actor and puppeteer. Alissa Hunnicutt is endorsed by Ohana Ukuleles and PHD Strings.
