A Divine Muse . . .
Coined as a Divine Muse by some, Seattle native Alisha has always been inspired by the fine arts. Since the tender age of six, Alisha has participated in a myriad of choirs and bands as both a vocalist and musician. Although she considers herself an alto, she croons from Tenor to second soprano; however, her soaring multi-octave range comparably emulates that of the late Minnie Riperton. Her vocal style bears resemblance to that of various genres of music including jazz/acid, funk, gospel, rock, R&B, and pop.
Throughout her music career, Alisha has served as a vocal and musical director. She’s shared the stage with acts such as Rahsaan Patterson, CeCe Peniston, Howard Hewett, Regina Belle, Miki Howard, Rachelle Ferrell, Gerald Veasley, Keiko Matsui, Peter White, Jeff Majors, Alyson Williams, Ann Nesby, Glenn Jones and many others. She’s also appeared on the renowned “Showtime At the Apollo” as an Amateur Night Contestant and is both a co-founder and lead vocalist for the dynamic female funk trio, Pink PaLiSh, based out of Washington, DC.
She’s recorded with many projects since 1999; but in 2017, she became a solo recording artist releasing her debut single entitled “Brother, Sister”. She is a two-time published author in the Women’s Compilation Project (Volumes #3 and #5). All her life, Alisha has been a fixture in music ministry and currently serves as a choir director and worship leader for her church’s music department.
As the founder of NTD Music LLC, she uses her music as a vehicle to reach people; to touch, inspire, and empower all within reach. She is purpose-driven, and advocates for the maximizing of everyone’s individualized potential. Alisha lives by her mantra, “Note the Difference; Be YOUnique!”
