Artist Spotlight: Alyssa Jacey
Welcome to the first post in our new Artist Spotlight blog series focusing on musicians who use CBD to help achieve health and wellness. I'm honored for our first artist in the series be an old friend of mine, the ultra-talented, insanely hard working, Alyssa Jacey.
Alyssa, tell us about your background - who are you and where are you from?
My name is Alyssa Jacey, I’m from San Diego, CA! I’m a professional singer/songwriter/dancer/choreographer/model and actress. I also do public speaking part time as well as sing the National Anthem at sports events. And I LOVE THE COLOR BLUE! #BringTheCrewandWearYourBlue means when you wear blue to an Alyssa Jacey show, $1 from ticket or merch sales gets donated to the Alzheimer's Association.
How old were you when you started playing music and what instruments do you play?
I was almost 24 when I was told I could sing and should start singing karaoke from co-workers. A year later, I was writing songs and performing, 10 months after that, I was teaching myself guitar and playing live and 2 years after that, drums.
What music projects are you currently in? What genre is it and where is it based?
I’m in my own project, Alyssa Jacey, a mixture of mainly pop/blues/folk/pop country, but I also play reggae, jazz, and more. Based in Nashville, TN!
Tell us about your experience with CBD, what do you use it for?
I use CBD in tincture drops to help me sleep. I’ve been using it for a couple years now!
Have you tried Rhythm CBD Seltzers?
I tried both flavors and they are DELICIOUS! I'm usually weary of flavored soda-water type drinks because they can taste too sugary, even if they don't have an ounce of sugar in them. But these have the perfect balance.
Not to mention the packaging is beautiful. They’re pretty, classy, soft cans. I don’t know how else to describe it! No one‘s going to believe me when I say this, but the can is...SOFT! Beautiful on the outside, delicious and refreshing on the inside.
What's something most people don't know about you?
I'm the only unsigned artist in the world to perform on Southwest Airlines and the only artist in the world to do it more than twice! (All 21 times can be seen via @AJLiveAt35 or #AJLiveat35 on Instagram, #LiveAt35 for other artists)
