Alisha Zalkin is a refreshing artist whose persona is grounded and genuine. She has a refined yet soulful voice offering a flavorful blend of acoustic music anchored in pop to mid tempo sounds which come together to empower others to find inner peace, full self expression, and courage in order to promote a harmonious world.
Alisha doesn’t let opportunities pass her by. One of her greatest musical influences, her Jewish grandmother, was the youngest person to be admitted into the Vienna School of Music, but lost her chance to become an opera star when Hitler rose to power. Now, Alisha isn’t taking a single note for granted, pursuing her passion and sharing it with as many people as possible.
Her lineage cultivated both her talent and message, as the common thread of music ties together the cultures of her Mexican grandmother and Jewish grandmother. Drawing on powerhouse vocals, Alisha looked to Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Carole King for inspiration. Today, she blends their melodic and lyrical influences with today’s artists, like Sara Bareilles, Natasha Bedingfield, and Colbie Caillat.
With an early knowledge of music’s ability to unify, Alisha uses her music to make a difference, actively involved in non-profit organizations that advance her as an artist, and spread a positive message for each organization.
“Music has so much potential to impact a person’s life” says Zalkin. “I want my music to shed a light on the amazing mission of causes that are making a difference in the world.”
In addition to participating in anti-bullying initiative Hey U.G.L.Y., Alisha is also an active participant for the Playing for Change Foundation. She’ll be donating part of her proceeds to this non-profit, whose mission is to connect the world through music.
