Nyssa and Alex are a brother/sister duo who play Acoustic Pop and French Music in their own unique style. Their influences include Ed Sheeran and Gabrielle Aplin.
Nyssa plays guitar and violin and sings melody, with her brother Alex joining her on the cello and singing harmony. They started playing professionally in 2013 after winning first place in a Moss Vale busking competition. Since then they have been playing regularly at weddings, restaurants, festivals and markets. Their CD “Joie de Vivre” is also available at markets when they perform, and on iTunes as well.
Nyssa & Alex have had many achievements over the past few years. They have played live for ABC Radio, reached well over a million views on YouTube, and sung the National Anthem for the Australia vs Thailand beach soccer final in Wollongong which was filmed by SBS. In 2017 Nyssa’s French cover of ‘Andalouse’ by Kendji reached over one million YouTube views and various producers quickly contacted her to participate on ‘The Voice’ in France. The French pop star Tal also tweeted about one of their covers and Nyssa and Alex have now built a large following in France.
Career highlights to date include playing at the exclusive wedding of league star Sam Burgess in Bowral, and at a function for Skye Leckie.
Their beautiful acoustic sound adds a touch of class to every event which has made them sought after for exclusive functions and weddings at venues all around the Southern Highlands and Illawarra regions, including Centennial Vineyards, Biota and Milton Park in Bowral, Bendooley Estate and E2 Events for Eschalot in Berrima, Mali Brae Farm in Moss Vale, Summerlees Sutton Forest, Mountain Ridge Winery in Coolangatta and many more.
They can also be heard performing regularly at markets in Bowral, Kiama and Wollongong.
