about the music
From her humble beginnings being raised on country and 90’s pop in small town Gympie, to opening the lid of Pandora’s box of worldly delights, Alisha has sung her way through it all with a fiery passion that only grows with time. Alisha sings the songs of a curious traveller, bringing focus to the beauty of humans and nature alike.
2012 brought the much-anticipated milestone of the production of her debut EP ‘Of All Time’, a 5-track collection of country-pop inspired songs, with the official release in mid 2013. The EP was warmly received in shows supporting fellow Australian independent artists Marshall Okell and Claude Hay. 'Without Us' earned Alisha three Dolphin Awards Finalist Nominations in the categories of Vocalist of the Year, Pop Song of the Year and New Emerging Talent of the Year and 'Charlie' making finalist in Pop song of the year for both Dolphin Awards and The Music Oz awards.
Following the release of her debut pop EP in 2013, Alisha set off on a 3.5-year journey of self, social and musical discovery through Europe. 2018 has seen a maturation of a new wave of material collected over the 3.5-year period, a year of preparation for the songbird as she plants her feet on home soil.
The latest EP release, ‘Live At Sonic Vista Studios’, is a collection of live solo acoustic performances recorded at the luscious Sonic Vista Studios, located in the secluded hills of Ibiza inside a 400 year old finca. This EP is available on Spotify.
JANUARY 31ST marks the date of Alisha’s next single release, ‘Icelandia’, a dreamy, guitar laden love song, swimming in soaring vocal harmonies that transport the listener straight to the source of inspiration: the unforgettable peacefulness of Iceland.
Recorded in her hinterland home studio at Belli Bunya Studios and mixed by the genius of Scott French at Lovestreet Studios in Currumbin, Gold Coast, the collaboration continues with the stunning lyric video cut by Dylan Isaiah (England), featuring imagery from Norwegian photographer, Kenneth McDowell.
Her profound affection for fusing jazz and pop with an earthy roots flavour creates a brew that warms you from the inside and embraces your physical being in a musical mumma squeeze.
2019 will be bringing you more new music!
