Alyson Mayne distinctively writes and sings autobiographical poetry put to music. A second generation musician from CT, having grown up in the shadow of "Outpouring" a Christian folk/rock band, she brings elements of folk with a fresh pop twist. Alyson sings with Louise Loya Mayne (her Mom) for "Relay For Life" ceremonies as well as in her debut single "Hands That Save".
Alyson emulates the artists of the 60's folk era, when music was used as a catalyst to change the world-an important moving force-a message to be heard with bravado-a united voice.

In 2001 Alyson Mayne was accepted into the "American Musical and Dramatic Academy" in NYC, after years of performing within the musical theater community. There she concentrated on strengthening her acting, singing, and dancing abilities. It was shortly after graduating the 2 year program, an offer of a lead role at "Sight and Sound Theaters" in Lancaster PA was given. As she performed her 13 shows a week, she did not forget about her own music that she had been writing since the age of 14. "I basically wrote music to express myself, to get my emotions out, especially at the most challenging times of my life". "I never expected that one day people would be listening to me pour my heart out of these songs". A Mayne.
Alyson Mayne arrived back to NYC to focus on her first works as a recording artist shortly after her year in PA. "I was asked which song I would like to record first and since my family means so much to me, I felt it important to begin my career with a tribute to them.
Mrs.Mayne's debut single was recorded by Linda Beasley aka. Jnani, in NYC. "I am incredibly greatful to Linda, not only giving me this opportunity but for her wisdom and guidance". A Mayne.
