Alyssa Ashley Reid (born March 15, 1993) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. Her career began in 2008 on The Next Star. She rose to fame in 2011, following the release of her single "Alone Again". Since 2018, she's released music under the name ASHS.

Reid was born in Edmonton, Alberta, and raised in Brampton, Ontario. Her family moved around Canada often. Reid stated that it gave her the life experience she needed to enter the music industry. She wrote her first song at the age of 7 and started vocal lessons at the age of 9. From then on, she has continued to develop her voice into what has become a singular vocal style. She is of Irish and Greek[1] heritage.

Reid was soon discovered by writer, producer, and Wax Records co-founder Jamie Appleby, who signed her to his label after finding a parody of Justin Bieber's "One Less Lonely Girl" (titled "One Less Lonely Boy") that she had posted on YouTube, which went viral.[2]

Her single "Alone Again" featuring P. Reign, released in November 2010, uses lyrics from Heart's 1987 hit "Alone", and was co-written with Wax Records label owner Jamie Appleby, with the original Heart writers Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. The song entered the Canadian Hot 100 at #79 for the week of January 1, 2011, and peaked at #11 the week of April 23, 2011. As of the week of September 24, 2011, the single has spent 39 weeks on the chart. It went on to be CRIA certified double platinum in Canada and sold over a million copies around the world.

In February 2011 she reached #1 on Billboard's "Canadian Emerging Artist" chart and held there for a record-breaking 33 weeks straight. Her single "The Game" was released on May 31, 2011, and entered the Canadian Hot 100 at #89 for the week of August 3, 2011, peaking at #35 as of the week of September 24, 2011. In February 2012, "Alone Again" achieved major success in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, beaten to the summit by "Titanium" by David Guetta featuring Sia. On April 27, 2011, she performed her debut single "Alone Again" at Chester University, along with several other covers.

Reid was nominated for a 2011 MuchMusic Video Award for Pop Video of the Year for "Alone Again". Her first ever visit to the UK involved a series of interviews with BBC Radio One, Capital FM and a live interview with Fame Factor TV.[3]

The Game was her debut studio album, recorded in 2010 and released on June 21, 2011, by Wax Records. Reid worked with composers and producers such as Billy Steinberg and Jamie Appleby. The album was released in the US as a digital download on May 7, 2013.

On July 20, 2011 Reid performed at The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe, England in the United Kingdom along with other acts for the Scunthorpe Telegraph's 75th Birthday and Lincs FM's 20th Birthday.
