Blaire Alise & The Bombshells hit the ground running in Detroit and haven't looked back with the release of their first full-length album. Blaire Alise, the songwriter, vocalist and guitar-wielding front woman is known for her high-energy, engaging performances. Her songs are full of catchy hooks, upbeat lyrics and rich background vocals reminiscent of that old school girl group sound, but that hearty dose of garage rock reminds you this band is from Detroit.

Biography

Blaire Alise is the kind of singer/songwriter who refuses to sit on a stool and play an acoustic guitar. She IS from Detroit after all. Blaire is known for her high-energy, engaging performances with a style described as a combination of 60's pop and garage rock. Her songs are full of catchy hooks, upbeat lyrics and rich background vocals reminiscent of that timeless girl group sound from the 60's, but with a hearty dose of garage rock that reminds you of her Detroit roots. Think Ronettes with a Detroit edge. Her influences include artists such as Wanda Jackson, Lesley Gore and Little Willie John, as well as the Detroit garage rock bands who have embraced her as their own.

Blaire Alise & The Bombshells was formed in 2012 and the band quickly earned their stripes in the Detroit music scene. They released their first vinyl single in 2013 and their second single, "Run & Hide," quickly followed. Their first full-length album, "For My Darlin'," was released in 2014 and was named one of the top 10 albums of the year from Detroit by the Metro Times.  

The band's momentum continues as their album and latest vinyl-only release, "Just Another Day," are distributed to record stores around the world. Blaire's original songs have been featured in commercials by Chevrolet and the Detroit Greektown Casino and Hotel.  She has been the subject of  feature articles in the Detroit Metro Times, The Detroit Free Press, and in music blogs around the world and was recently signed by the Nashville division of international music publisher Carlin America.

The trio has opened for the likes of The Detroit Cobras, The Matches, Reverend Horton Heat, Dale Watson, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, and can be found playing Detroit's many live music venues, as well as frequently appearing in major cities around the country winning audiences over with the pure power of pop.
