Bio

Alana is a singer/songwriter from Sydney. From an early age, it was obvious that she was destined for a creative life. Seemingly singing before she was able to talk, Alana has spent her formative years honing her craft and continues to work towards enhancing and exploring her artistic talents through various competitions and musical endeavors. As an award-winning songwriter, Alana understands the effort and emotions that go into every layer of a song and continues to grow and mature as an artist by capturing her imaginative as well as life experiences through music.

“I come from jazz roots, but I write predominantly pop, indie, pop rock, alternative and sometimes venture into jazz, funk, and rnb. I like to write about life and experiences of life (in my inexperience), and I like to tell stories with my songs. I can always write a song about crushing on someone, or about a breakup. Usually, I write with a guitar, and sometimes I venture onto the piano, even midi sequencing. " Writing songs and singing from the age of 8, Alana has written over 100 songs and self produced many including “Walking to School”, “When I am with You” and “Another Letter”, winning various awards in Australia since 2006. Alana has written songs for children’s choirs,
films, TVs, weddings, birthdays, sports events as well as production music. Some of her songs have been licensed for use by TV projects and other artists and played on community radio stations.

In 2014, Alana took a proactive initiative by entering a professional studio to have her song “Mirror” recorded and produced. From brainstorming, rough cuts, fund-raising, organizing and rehearsing with session musicians, hiring pros and studios, to performing, arrangement and production, Alana took control of every step of this creative process. Alana plays piano, guitar, programs music in midi and has recently completed a club DJ course.

A cute and catchy little pop tune. The vocals are bright and perky while the echoing sounds gives an interesting effect. The sweet whistling adds to the charm of the song. Nice work (3.5 stars)!
