Alyssa Murray - 7:07 Front Porch Concert

Date: 

Wednesday, June 29, 2022 - 19:00

Location: 

Second Presbyterian Church, 318 E 55th St, Kansas City, MO 64113

Description: All are invited to join us Wednesday, June 29, as we welcome musical guest Alyssa Murray for our 7:07 front porch concert. Combining a keen songwriting sense with a playful display of sonic influences, Alyssa Murray creates a satisfying juxtaposition of synth and song. The Kansas City based singer/songwriter, keyboardist, and producer takes after some of the very best art-pop mainstays, electronic wizards, and west coast beat makers. Always feeling a strong pull towards songwriting, Alyssa studied piano, voice, and guitar in her teens deep diving into such influences as Fiona Apple and Stevie Wonder. Further pursuing her passion for jazz and improvisation, Alyssa moved to Kansas City to study jazz-piano at the UMKC Conservatory while immersing herself in the local music scene. Her 2015 debut ‘As of Now’ showcases her ability to combine elements of jazz with the narrative sophistication of contemporary-folk. Departing from her previous sound, the electronic, indie fusion of ‘Half & Half’ stands as a major shift in Alyssa’s artistic approach and perspective. Seeking full creative autonomy, she wrote, recorded, and produced all in-home. “It was a super charged time for me,” she says, “I hope the listener is able to take some of that transformative energy with them.” In addition to performing, Alyssa is an accompanist with the Kansas City Ballet and is involved with its community program Reach Out And Dance. She has also played for Owen/Cox Dance Group’s in-school program Take the Stage. Alyssa has a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and has studied under the direction of Bobby Watson and Dan Thomas; as well as classical repertoire with Karen Kushner and Diane Petrella. Second’s 7:07 front porch concerts are presented free to our neighborhood and church family (tips are always appreciated for our musicians!). Attendees are encouraged to bring their own drinks and lawn chairs. We look forward to seeing you at 7:07!
