I’ve been a fan of Alyson Greenfield’s for over 5 years. In that time, I have seen her evolve as an artist and it has been an amazing thing to watch. She’s a multi-instrumentalist and she is constantly pushing boundaries and trying new things. I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know her on a personal level as well as work with her on her project, Tinderbox, an annual music festival that benefits organizations whose mission is to help develop the next generation of female artists.
It seems only fitting that Alyson Greenfield be the one to kick off the Friday 5 feature.
What was the first concert you ever attended?
If you could form a band with 3 other people in it, who would those 3 people be?
What are you listening to lately?
What’s the song(s) you’re most proud of writing?
“Uncharted Places” (my next single!) and “Spirit Soul” (a 10 minute song with a string trio and drums that hasn’t been recorded yet).
Your music has what I would consider to be a lot of feminist themes. Do you write about these things intentionally?
I feel like I used to write a lot about these themes intentionally a few years ago. Lately I feel like my scope of inspiration is wider, and while I still have songs with feminist themes I don’t feel as if I’m quite as focused on them as I once was. I’m more inspired lately just by being a human in general.
Alyson is currently working on the video for her single Uncharted Places and recently released a video for her brilliant cover of LL Cool J’s song “Mama Said Knock You Out” as well as “Michael Cera C*ckblocked Me at SXSW”. Check them out below!
