Alyssa Robbins is rolling through town! With the recent release of her third studio album, "Our Time Was Here We Just Forgot to Be", Robbins makes a rockier departure from her first two albums ("Wet Behind the Ears" & "The Other Side of the World"). She growls and snarls her way through stories of haunted Brooklyn streets, changing seasons, and a lovers insanity all with a touch of sensitivity and heart ache. With the lyrical prose of Aimee Mann and the voice of Etta James, “Our Time was Here...” provides the perfect balance of whiskey swigging rock and gin sipping soul.

Hailing from Erie, Colorado, Saunders crafts catchy, acoustic-driven pop-rock with purpose. “I want to communicate the things I find really important in life,” she says. “And I think, especially in America, everyone’s dying for something real in music. And I want to write music like that.” -DeliRadio
