A hopeful girl raised on country, now an optimistic, youthful lady living a soulful, pop-inspired musical lifestyle. Her sound brings pleasure to those who get a little excited over the clear tone of Jewel and the soulful sexiness of Corrine Bailey Rae, floating over a diverse range of genres delivered with a passionate performance; from youthful, pop, singer-songwriter to more recently incorporating a touch of roots and folk-ish grooves, melodically soulful hooks and conscious lyrics. 2012 brought the much-anticipated milestone of the production of her debut EP ‘Of All Time’, a 5-track collection of pop-inspired original songs. Alisha begins testing the waters with her EP in July with an EP launch held in current home town Lismore, right in the heart of the Northern Rivers, followed by shows in Byron Bay and The Channon. The EP has already had airplay on The Northern Rivers ABC station and Bay FM in Byron Bay and has been warmly received at pre-launch gigs supporting fellow Australian independent artists Marshall Okell and Claude Hay. The EP’s single, Without Us, earned Alisha three Dolphin Awards Nominations in the categories of Vocalist of the Year, Pop Song of the Year and New Emerging Talent of the Year. Of All Time has hit the iTunes store and is available in hard copy by request, with the second run now in production. After 21 years of life experience and 7 years of musical experience as an Australian independent artist, Alisha felt the time appropriate to take the next step in her relationship with her musical career. “I want to travel. I want to play music. I want to meet people. These aspirations are made to be done together.” The future holds a world of mystery, not only for every person on the planet, but also for Alisha. Australia and Europe are on the list of places to visit and unleash the happiness of Alisha’s music and soul within the next 2 years. Beyond that, the journey is lead by Alisha’s hunger to learn and willingness to give and create. Follow her journey online, or else make it to a gig and initiate conversation...like they did in the old days.

Alisha Todd's track 'Charlie' is underpinned by a unique thematic perspective - that of another person. It is refreshing to hear a pop song that isn't self-obsessed or arrogant. Musically, it has a playful timbre yet it is succinct in its structure with air-tight harmonies and a strong vocal melody that propels the piece of music forward.
