 Commack, New York, USA


Like a one-of-a-kind diamond, 18 year old singer/songwriter/ musician Alissa Cavallaro
not only shines, her uniqueness and outside-the-box talents are illuminating the darkness of the current music scene.

Since the tender age of nine, music has been young Alissa's
passion. Since that time, it has become her destiny. Self-
described as “weird,” she accomplished an almost
superhuman feat, winning the Amateur Night competition at
the infamous Apollo Theater in New York City at age nine.
With superstar Alicia Keys as her absolute
inspiration/idol/role model, Alissa slayed her hit “No One” for
the world's toughest audience and came out the shining
victor. She has performed halftime at Madison Square
Garden for a Knicks/Lakers game at 11 years of age, and wowed audiences at venues such as The Nassau Coliseum, The Izod Center, Jones Beach,
Sullivan Hall and The Bitter End.

This wunderkind from Long Island, New York had initially set her sights on becoming an
actress; that goal has been pushed to second by Alissa's entry into the music business,
though she still does a variety of acting performances for the New York Film Academy's
short film initiative.

Alissa's musical resolve, focus and determination were summarily strengthened by
witnessing her role model up close and personal.

A “different kid, who marches to the beat of her own drummer” according to herself and
her mother, the animated Alissa's musicianship includes piano and ukelele. Yes – ukelele.
Having received it as a gift, she is drawn to its sweet, singular sound, and effortlessly
incorporates it into her music. A trendsetter at an age when other kids are following, Alissa
journeyed to Los Angeles with her mother, where she met and worked with her now-
producer, Tim Brown aka Father MC. He wrote and produced her first album on Famous
Records, “I Am That Girl.” Alissa's new single, “Papers,” became a #2 hit on Reverbnation in
Long Island.

Definitely ready for her close-up, Alissa describes herself as “an R&B singer with an acoustic
flair.” She likes to rearrange songs and tweak them to fit her self-expression and style.

An exceptional teen by any standard, Alissa is utilizing her multi-faceted potential to
become a household name and a role model/inspiration to others. She advises other young
performers to get out there and self-promote and definitely not to give up.

A true gem, Alissa Cavallaro's sparkling personality and killer music chops are burning
