Alyssa Marie Coon’s Bio

Alyssa Marie is known “nice girl next door” in her everyday life but she is a musical force to reckon with. Music has been an integral part in Alyssa’s life from an early age. She plays classical piano, acoustic and electric guitar, ukulele, cajon, and drums. Alyssa has an inert ability to draw people in with the sweet-sounding dulcet tones in her voice and the deep lyrics of her original songs about life experiences. Alyssa is heavily influenced by artists like Taylor Swift, Danielle Bradbury, Kelsea Ballerini, and Dolly Parton. Alyssa has opened for David Nail as well as Tracy Lawrence along with Nashville recording artist, Walker Montgomery and performed at the same venue as Lady A, Darius Rucker, Russell Dickerson, Dierks Bentley, Jon Pardi, and Tenille Townes. She performed at Carnegie Hall, Ole Red Orlando, the Tin Roof Delray, The Commodore, Belcourt Taps and the Bluebird in Nashville, and many more venues and festivals.

Michael Allen Walker’s Bio 

Michael Allen Walker is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and singer-songwriter who resides in Central Florida. After enjoying a long career in artist development through his company Dreamwalker Music Evolution, he has recently embarked on a new chapter focusing on releasing his own music.

Michael and his wife Caroline began writing songs together several years ago, drawing from their combined life experience with a heavy emphasis on storytelling. All of Michael’s songs are self-produced, allowing him to work within a truly creative framework. In 2023, he released his first instrumental piece, Wind Walker, followed by three singles: Tumbleweeds, Shot in the Dark, and Lipstick on the Mirror. He has a small catalog of additional songs ready to go. Michael grew up in the Philadelphia area and first picked up a guitar at the age of thirteen. He quickly became obsessed with the instrument, practicing up to eight hours a day. His biggest influences were Joe Satriani, Randy Rhodes, and Swedish virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen. A well-rounded player, Michael studied classical guitar with Charles Bell and jazz guitar with jazz pioneer John Dougherty.

After the death of both his parents, Michael found himself on his own at the age of eighteen. He relied on his musical skills to support himself by giving guitar lessons and working at a local amplifier company. In his early twenties, intrigued with the growing Central Florida music scene, he moved to the Orlando area to pursue a fresh chapter in his music journey. During that time he worked as a session guitarist providing tracks for major artists, as well as performing in his own bands and continuing to grow his instructional business.
In 2005, Mike’s band “Rule of 7” received a Grammy Award for the Florida Unsigned Bands Showcase. Although the group disbanded, he continued to perform with other local bands, opening for major acts such as Pat Benatar, Charlie Daniel’s Band, Jake Owens, Scotty Mccreery, and Colt Ford.

To present, Michael and his wife have spent the majority of their time focusing on raising their kids and building their artist development business in the quaint town of Gotha, Florida. They share four adult children, the youngest of whom plays in two local bands and is following in his dad’s footsteps. Michael is a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan and in his spare time enjoys traveling with his wife and attending his son’s shows. He is looking forward to sharing his music with new friends with the hope that his songs will resonate with anyone who enjoys a good story and an occasional long guitar solo.

Lucy Spotts Bio

From northeast Florida, Lucy Spotts writes songs, plays guitar, sings, and surfs — not necessarily in that order. Lucy had her beginnings with Entertainment Central Productions in Orlando as a Caroling Kid and in the Amerikids Choir. Her YouTube channel is as apt to have a new video of a cover from Justin Bieber, or Stevie Nicks or a new song she has written, or a surfing video.

Her voice is clear, often understated and soft, yet she has a way of hitting a word or phrase with power when it’s called for. Lucy is as adept at “Tennessee Whisky” as she is when singing her own songs.
