Dave Alyassin has been writing songs for about 30 years now.  His biggest hit single was Mystical Ages from the 1st album under the Racecar moniker.

The 2nd album under the same bandname was awarded Best Rock CD in New Mexico by the New Mexico Music Awards. 

That album was produced in Albuquerque, New Mexico by Jeffery Mettling at Trinity Recording Studios and mastered in Santa Fe, New Mexico by Andrew Click at Stepbridge Studio. Guest appearances include Simon Widdowson, Jon Trujillo, Anya Alyassin, Gamze Guckiran and Willy Magee. Also, David Cragin of Santa Fe Soundworks, Steven Howell of Jonasol Studio & Julian Lopez of Crazy Productions Studio.

Judges awarding the album included Rick Derringer, who has played with The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Alice Cooper, Steely Dan, Kiss, Todd Rundgren and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Rick’s classic hit, "Rock and Roll Hootchie Koo" is a standard. Other judges included Elvin Bishop and Randy Brecker. Randy has seven Grammy nominations under his belt and a double Grammy for the album "Out of the Loop". He has played with Stanley Clarke, Eric Clapton, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Chaka Khan, George Benson, Larry Coryell, David Sanborn and Frank Zappa.


Now under a new moniker, acoustic astronaut, Dave is working on an ep with songs including, No Peace in my Radio & I Can Finally Hear.
