Today we’d like to introduce you to Alley Bei.
Alley, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was standing in the shower really upset because my mom and I just had it out about my messy room. Thinking about how unfair the whole thing was, I started tapping my foot and made a musical rhyme about it.
I was 11, that was my first song, and yes, I still remember words and tune. Was it THAT unfair? Maybe not… but I’ll credit mom for inspiring it!
Today with my debut single “Greenface” finally released to major music platforms and my album on the way for 2020, it’s funny that I still write songs the same way- standing in the shower tapping my foot…making rhymes.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road has been VERY windy.
For a while music was a sidequest- I was too busy with army life, college, traveling, mischief, relationships, overcoming challenges, discovering myself and others to pursue music seriously. Through all of it, my guitar was along for the ride, documenting everything.
When I finally took the risk and made art a priority, things took off and it’s been a real blessing!
Can you give our readers some background on your music?
The music is high energy alternative with anime vibes and a spooky flavor. I’m trilingual, so expect lyrics in English, Chinese, and Spanish.
For performances, I do acoustic shows or with a full band- Either way, it’s loud and flashy, and I’m all about creating a memorable experience. My motto is “Do it on the stage, that’s the only place you can.”
I’m also into voice acting! I’m currently voicing for a grassroots anime project called Double Vision- My character’s name is Emily, and she is this sort of this hyper-active punk high-schooler who plays guitar and sings. I really relate to her, and I’m a HUGE anime fan, so I’m extra excited to be a part of the project!
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
We’re the diamond of the south, yet everything in Atlanta is for the locals. There’s some touristy things, yeah- but if you are visiting, get yourself a local friend to take you through the scenes or you’ll miss out big time on the real reason our city sparkles.
I think we need more sidewalks. Seriously everyone, pressure your local governments to be more pedestrian and cycling friendly!!
