US singer-songwriter Alyssa Bonagura has shared a live performance video of her single ‘Warrior,’ first released in 2012 off her album ‘Love Hard’ in support of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month – November. The video is available to view here.

Filmed in the summer of 2020, Alyssa returned to Liverpool to reconnect with a group of musicians and bring them together to film a twelve-song live set. Adlib, a leading event company, built a full-scale live set in their Liverpool studio, and filmed and produced the performance. The performance of ‘Warrior’ was filmed in honour of the Seena Magowitz Foundation.

Pancreatic Cancer Research is a cause close to Alyssa’s heart, having lost one of her friends to the disease. As Alyssa comments, “this song was written for a very dear friend of mine, Nikki Mitchell, who was battling pancreatic cancer when we met. She was the kind of person that never let anything stop her from living a full life and even with this disease she did just that. In my eyes, she was the ultimate warrior. I hope this song can be an encouraging message to those who are battling cancer.”

Alyssa most recently released ‘New Wings (Acoustic)‘ and will share more new music in the months to come.

ABOUT ALYSSA BONAGURA:

A songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Alyssa Bonagura has spent the past decade fine-tuning a sound that reaches far beyond her Nashville roots. It’s a sound that blurs the boundaries between genres, mixing the southern storytelling of country music, the free-thinking spirit of rock & roll, and the cinematic sweep of Brit-pop into its own hybrid. For Alyssa — a lifelong road warrior who spent her infancy aboard a tour bus, recorded a duet with Kenny Rogers at 10 years old, received her college diploma from Sir Paul McCartney, and currently balances her critically-acclaimed solo career with an ongoing gig writing songs for Jessie James Decker, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, and others — it’s also a sound that’s every bit as diverse as her own story.
