Biography

Alisa's influences are: Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight & Maysa Leak.

Singer/Songwriter/Recording Artist Alisa Simms has crafted over the years a unique vocal style that demonstrates her compelling vocal range with vocal intensity and has designed her path with experience, charisma and class.

Alisa has been singing and performing professionally with local Bands and Orchestras for many years making her a veteran at her craft. Her style, talent and professionalism has made her a highly sought after songstress and opened up opportunities to travel beyond Chicago.

Alisa has traveled to Las Vegas, Nashville, Denver, Wisconsin, Canada, etc. and performed at many different types of venues and events for corporate, weddings, anniversary parties, fundraisers, political conventions, grand openings, bar mitzvahs, sororities, reunions, and celebrity parties.

But as an independent artist, Alisa desired to take her career to another level so she began promoting and marketing herself and has been formly known as The “Queen of Chicago Soul” but is currently The "Soulstress" while touring with her own live band. Alisa’s vocals coupled with her bands melodic musicianship is unrivaled in any music she performs. Her live performances proved equally compelling, her rapport with the audience is both engaging and intimate, and her powerful but warm voice is ambient as it spreads across every corner of the room and draws you in.

In 2006 she recorded and released her first CD single she co-wrote with her Chicago producer, Jonathan Scales. Her debut CD, “Remember” is a crystal-clear triumph, and has been getting rave reviews with an anticipation of more to come. This is truly the work of a very fascinating and talented female vocalist.
