Album Notes
After being discovered by famed A&R rep. Jason Flom, (Tori Amos, Matchbox 20, etc.) Alta signed with Atlantic records and released her first CD "Shoulda Known Better" following 5 hit dance singles. But disenchanted by "major label politics", she decided to independently create the Album that no major label would dare release! Shrouded in controversy, this CD openly discusses topics that were often disguised in gender neutral pronouns.

Dychology 101 has delighted audiences worldwide. From the comical yet poignant "Hatties Bar" which chronicals the tale of a gay bar operating amid the Mormon conservatism of Salt Lake City, Utah, and the "The Coming Out Song". The popularity of this CD continues to grow. Recently, the song "One" was featured in the critically aclaimed short film "The Ten Rules...".

Currently, Alta continues to live and perform in NYC.

[CD BABY EDITOR NOTE: who notices lyrics?!? The MUSIC on this CD is AMAZING! Great, creative, funky tunes here. Recommended.]



to write a review


I"ve always loved her distinctive voice tonality
sounds and textures along with cutting edge grooves give her
a sound of her own


My new favorite CD!!!
This CD rocks. The beat will make you just want to dance
and sing out loud and the lyrics are honest, bold and
personal. It's obvious a lot of love, hard work, and
dedication was put into this CD. If you love being a lesbian
or if you just love good music, this is a CD you don't want
to be without.

This is the CD you wished you had in high school
Dychology 101 is the kind of CD you wish you could have played something from at your high school dance, if you're of a certain age and queer. Well, you CAN play this at your high school dance and anywhere else you'd like whether you're gay or not! It's got a little something for everyone, and with a voice that takes you on a ride from delightfully sweet & pure to gravelly, sexy and edgy, you'll want it both full throttle from your speakers and whispered right into your ear in person. A delight from beginning to end, with lyrics honest enough to make you feel them in your soul, and beats hot enough to keep you jumpin'! It's fun, it's funky and it's yours if you're smart enough to buy it!

Vintage Alta, she reaches your soul whether you are gay or straight.
Her unique sound is all Alta. The lyrics are powerful and can't help but touch your soul whether you are gay or straight. Each time I listen, I want more. Now..brought tears to my eyes..again and again and again. These songs should be out there for all to hear.

Madison Hyatt

Totally hip!
This is a totally hip CD. Indigo girls are fine, but this has an edge and spunk. Way cool lyrics and tunes-- a must if you're "family."


Well, it's about damn time! Finally someone with the guts to say what we've all
Honest writing and a clear style, this music reflects the passion and diversity of its essence. This CD is about much more than being gay, it's about having the courage to be vulnerable and the guts to be yourself. Finally, someone says what we have all been thinking. If you can't put your feelings into words, don't worry, just listen....

armageddon girl is AWSOME!!!!
this cd rocks! hattie's bar....too funny! so nice to hear such honest lyrics finally! what else has she done?

Elizabeth Reynolds

We can all say we heard her first...the real deal.
A funky,driving,adrenelin high. Personal lyrics and a very catchy, unique voice helps you find the groove makes you wanna keep playing it.The songs will haunt you. When have you heard someone with this much guts AND the whole package? A much needed voice of courage and acceptance.....really cool.


Alta Dustin a new voice for the new Millenium
This CD is wonderfully refreshing, compellingly honest and totally groovin'! A must for the coolest CD collection around!! Rock on grrl!


time to get your groove on
Great poppy spunk in Alta's cd that is a great listen. She touches some interesting topics in her lyrics, but I would say that the music alone is worth the money. When you put the two together you're in for a blast! You don't have to be gay to love this cd, but you better be prepared to meet the Armageddon girl.
