GOT SOUL? - 2008



With a voice posessing both power and versatility, Alysha Brillinger is a singer/songwriter. Writing with a maturity beyond her 19 years, her pop/soul tunes are touched by her influences of blues and folk. She is driven and expressive, lively and versatile and a powerhouse singer.

Alysha is currently recording a few singles with producer Joao Carvalho in Toronto, while performing around the GTA both acoustically and with her band.

Alysha Brillinger has always been a go-getter, an independent female since she was very young. In a household full of multi-cultural role models, Alysha would lock herself in her room, blast records, sing along, and play the keyboard. Always an energetic child, she would organize shows and perform for family get-to-gethers. This powerhouse knew how to excite people by just singing into a hairbrush.

In the summer of 2005, Alysha recieved a $20,000 grant for winning 91.5 The beat's "Rhythm Of The Future" contest and began to record a demo in Toronto with producer Marcus Kane, who has sold over three million units worldwide. This experience offered great opportunities, such as opening for Juno Award winner "K-OS" at Hip-Hop-Toberfest 2006 and singing in CMW's "Urban Showcase" in 2006. In addition to that, Alysha has performed with The Detroit Women, Douglas Watson and has sang on recordings for Canadian Reggae Musician, SNOW.
