Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, The Wrong Side (EP, 2015)
Songs like other mainstream country/pop artists, vocals like early Sarah McLachlan
Own and co-written
Alayna's vocals are highly reminiscent of early Sarah McLachlan. Her songs are well-crafted very mainstream pop—the tunes are constructed very conventionally, both lyrically and musically, and Alayna's vocals are strong. She's bent on mainstream success, and certainly stands a good chance of getting there. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recommended first album:
Top of a Dream is the only one we'ver heard
Top of a Dream (2012)
See Alayna's site
Recommendeded for fans of mainstream country pop
Alayna Carroll—vocals, backing vocals
JT Corenflas—electric guitar (1, 2, 3, 4, 6)
A debut EP that shows exactly how well Alayna manages mainstream country pop material. She has a powerful and gorgeous voice and uses it expressively and well in these very conventional songs. She can manage the range of ballads and more rocking songs. It's a strong debut, especially for fans of the genre, but I'd love to hear what she could do with material a little more off the so very well-trodden path she's currently following.
