Bio

BIO ON ALANA SWEETWATER:

Alana Sweetwater, what’s her story?
She’s from Tucson, Arizona, USA.
Is she Indian?
No, she’s from the Jewish Tribe.
What’s she look like?
A dark haired angel. even more beautiful without the wings.
So what makes her so special?
Listen to her songs. She’s a writer, a songwriter, songstress.
Remember we need more writers, not just babes with bouncy mindless chatter.
Deep but not dark. Light but not fluff.
Her album goes by like a good friend coming to visit.
The music she writes is a window to her soul. Alana stays true to her belief that music
should be an honest connection from the heart of the creator to the heart of the listener.
Tucson was her home base until she packed up her car in December of 2002 and
moved to LA. She immediately began playing gigs around town and placed two songs
in a Jim Wilson (Dances With Wolves) film called “Whirly Girl”.
Alana then reconnected with long time friend and mentor Lonn Friend. Lonn introduced
her to Joe Romersa (John Prine, Carlene Carter) who recorded a 13 song album of Alana’s
music on his Shadow Box Studio indie-label, which has finally captured the unique style
Alana’s been looking for.
After the release of her new CD in July of 2004, a band was formed to promote the CD
starting as five members and then scaled down to a power trio with Joe Romersa on drums,
Glo Minaya on bass and Alana singing and playing guitar.
She and her trio has played The House Of Blues, The Whisky A Go Go, B.B. King’s,
and other great venues in Hollywood and is now looking for radio play and concert bookings.

Alana Sweetwater is one of those rare artists who is happy playing her music for anyone
who wants to listen. She has played in clubs, theatres, and festivals as well as in hospitals,
bus stops and even as a special guest for her 7 year old neighbor’s “Show and Tell” at school.
Her music touches the humanity in people. Her unique voice and style are totally her own.
She has been compared to many female artists such as Ani Difranco, Sheryl Crow, Janis Joplin,
and Stevie Nicks. She’s a poet and a storyteller, full of passion and power. Alana may be
singing about a party on the beach, or exploring the depths of her most intimate world,
but always, Alana is a Desert Rose who has made her life her song.
