"Alex Vissia, who now calls her musical project by one name, had an incredible year. Not only did she release a killer album – Place Holder – which placed her in the top tier of the city’s folk-rock spheres, but she started a music label at the same time – Hurry Hard Records, with partner Nich Davies. Her music, propelled by her incredible guitar work as much as her voice and lyrics, is at once not only folk-rock, but heavily indebted to Americana, as well as other more subtle influences, including jazz and country."
