"Happy Place" Song Breakdown w/ Alyssa Trahan

"Happy Place" Song Breakdown w/ Alyssa Trahan

Based out of Nashville, Alyssa Trahan is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist that we are very proud to have as a part of the Kala Artist family! While much of her music is classifiable within the Country and Country Pop umbrella, something we’ve admired about Alyssa’s work is her ability to blur genre lines by applying her own unique approach to production, style and instrumentation.

As one of the singles off of her debut LP Baby Blues & Stilettos, “Happy Place,” was written and performed by Alyssa using her Kala Ukulele, she teamed up with us to provide an in-depth breakdown of the song and its components.
