The evolution of Lyssa Coulter has rocked this singer/songwriter into a new lane. Coulter has dedicated herself fulltime to music, since she left New England for Nashville several years ago. In Nashville, she found her voice and discovered her sound. Here, you can get to know much more about my Local Catch of the Week, Lyssa Coulter from Westboro.

Lyssa’s latest offering, “CHAOS” has the artist embracing her inner rock star. The song is edgier that her previous releases, and this new lane suits the artist. It’s a dramactic build from the opening notes to the driving chorus, heavily accompanied by soaring guitar riffs and throbbing beats. Coulter continues to explore new roads in her musical journey. With each turn, there’s a world of possibilities for an extraordinary ride.

  • The Music

    Lyssa wrote her lates single, “CHAOS”  with a couple of other New England artists, and Local Catch favorites, Molly Mae and Paige Davis. Coulter explained how it came together; “We went into the co-write open minded. Paige started playing something she had been working on previously and once I heard the bones of the song we were able to shape it into something that went along with my story. “CHAOS” is my introduction into country-rock. I had a lot of friends and colleagues mention how the songs I was releasing weren’t “on brand” with other songs I released and my response was “CHAOS”. Life is about finding who you are and especially being in my early-mid 20’s I can confidently say I don’t know who I am yet and I’m still finding who I want to be and that’s okay. At the end of the day I hope that this is what listeners take away from the song.”
