Alyssa Reid

Born in Edmonton, Alberta and raised in Brampton, Ontario, Reid’s family moved around Canada often. Reid stated that it gave her the life experience she needed to enter the music industry. She wrote her first song at the age of 7 and started vocal lessons at the age of 9. From then on, she has continued to develop her voice into what has become a singular vocal style.  Her single “Alone Again” featuring P. Reign, released in November 2010,  entered the Canadian Hot 100 at #79 for the week of January 1, 2011 and peaked at #11 the week of April 23, 2011. As of the week of September 24, 2011, the single has spent 39 weeks on the chart. It went on to be CRIA certified double platinum in Canada and sold over a million copies around the world.

In February 2011 she reached #1 on Billboard’s  “Canadian Emerging Artist” chart and held there for a record breaking 33 weeks straight. Her single “The Game”  was released on May 31, 2011 and entered the Canadian Hot 100 at #89 for the week of August 3, 2011, peaking at #35 as of the week of September 24, 2011. In February 2012, “Alone Again” achieved major success in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart,  beaten to the summit by “Titanium” by David Guetta featuring Sia.

Reid was nominated for a 2011 Much Music Video Award for Pop Video of the Year for “Alone Again”. In 2012 Reid performed at Juno Awards and was nominated in the “Best New Artist” category.
