Gaining 3 x finalist berths at the 2012 Country Music Awards of Australia at the Official Launch of the 40th Jayco Tamworth Country Music Festival has now confirmed what many key industry people have been predicting - Aleyce Simmonds is one of our most promising Singer/Songwriters.
Winning the award for 'Female Rising Star' at the 2011 Australian Independent Country Music Awards of Australia in October made the masses again stand up and take notice to the 2005 Telstra Road to Tamworth Winner.
The prestigious title of 'Female Rising Star' was added to Aleyce's list of accolades, which includes:
The journey began for Aleyce when her prize winning debut single Mighty Mighty Love charted in the top 10 Nationally on Radio and the corresponding music video went to #1 and became the most requested music video in the history of the Country Music Channel.
Aleyce's dream to be a successful recording artist began to take shape as she commenced the creation of her first album, working closely with Award Winning Producer and songwriter, Rod McCormack and Sony Music Australia.
Writing with some of Australia's finest songwriters gave Aleyce a great insight into what it takes to be a quality writer. She co-wrote Graeme Connor's second single from his 'Fiddlers Feast Album 'Bondwood Boat', whilst co-writing her entire album.
Aleyce has shared with us 'Pieces' and left us all wanting more from this incredibly talented singer!
