Founded in 2001 by cousins Julissa Gomez and Mario German. JULISSA is a NYC Latin ALternative Rock band based in Astoria, Queens who's members are Julissa Gomez (lead vocals/ songwriter), Mario German (guitar, co-writer), Albert Maldonado (guitar, co-writer), Carlos Fuentes (bass), James Shephard (drums/co-writer), and Bissette Mercado (percussions/backup vocals).

Since the groups first performances, they have been well received and continue to be received with much enthusiasm and appeal by audiences of all ages, ethnic background and languages. Proving always that music is a universal language that can be understood and appreciated by anyone. With the help of 3 times platinum record producer Pavel Dejesus, Julissa has begun to carve out their own niche in the world of Latin Rock, bringing in their own sound and originality. As one reviewer has declared on GarageBand.com, "I don't know what language she is singing, but I just want to put my dancing shoes on and rock it out! Awesome Energy!" This very same sentiment has been shared by many who have experienced JULISSA live or otherwise. It describes their music and it's objective perfectly!

Julissa has had numerous successes starting with their win in the 2002 LatinoMix 105.9FM's (Now LaCalle) battle of the bands "Talento Local", giving them local notariety and success. Launching right away into their career — getting invited by promoters to open up for leading artist in various major latin festivals given throughout the the tri-state area such as the Mexican "Cinco De Mayo" , Columbian and Dominican day festivals as well as private promotional parties given by local radio stations and TV shows such as "Urban Latino" and most recently "Legacy Marketing Partners" (a major marketing firm for Burger King and other fortune 500 companies). In addition, making top 40 reviewers list in 2006 for best latin songs on Garageband.com, number three for "Mariposas", and number ten for "Dame tu Amor". Getting top ranking and most request for songs by listeners of numerous registered online college and independant radio such as Lista de Exitos (www.exitos.bastias.cl), WSPC 88.7FM (Libido latino), 91.3WLVR (Latidos), Ulrafuzion Latina (www.radiomelodia.com), and many the like where Julissa continues to chart. And most recently, winning out of ten other contestants, the 2007 nationwide battle of the bands "Tu Musica, Tu Ciudad" by Burger King, New York region.

While continuing to search for a label that can take the band Julissa to the next level, The band currently works hard in continuing to create and record their own brand of music with re-known producer Pavel Dejesus, who has been instumental to the bands developement of their sound and pro quality performance.
