Rock and pop fuse together to create an unstoppable force in an effort to bring more women into the music industry.

Alyssa DVM is a singer/songwriter from Kitchener, Ontario. She is currently enrolled in Mohawk College’s Music Program. Growing up, Alyssa always had an ear for music. After finding her voice and passion for singing, Alyssa was trained as a rock vocalist and studied vocal technique and ensemble work at the School of Rock in Kitchener-Waterloo. Through this experience, Alyssa was able to find her love of performing, which led straight to the Mohawk Music Program.

Through her school and training, Alyssa was able to develop her own sound using the tools she had gathered along the way. Her love of storytelling shines through in her original material and performance, and her rock music upbringing helps to elevate her sound to new levels. The combination of being trained as a rock vocalist and having a love for indie fuse together to create a sound that defines Alyssa DVM. 

Under the artist name ADVM, Alyssa released her debut project in 2019, the “Danielle EP”. She has since changed her artist name to Alyssa DVM.

As a woman in a male-dominated industry, Alyssa hopes to bring awareness to the imbalance within every aspect of the music industry. She hopes to inspire women from all around the world to stand up and take action against the disrespect and exclusion women face in the industry.

Alyssa is actively trying to redefine what it means to be an artist that can constantly evolve and adapt in an ever-changing society, while still sticking to your roots. No matter what Alyssa decides to experiment with, she always has fun doing it.
