Today we’d like to introduce you to Alicia Eris.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Alicia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I started recording music at ten years old. I played over 100 live shows by the time I decided to record my first solo EP at age 14. This past year, I released my debut album ‘Universoul’ with the help of an amazing producer named Dane Diamond. At the same time, I published my first poetry book, ‘Heaven is a Mansion in the Stars’. Since then, some amazing opportunities have opened up. I’m just really enjoying creating everyday – back to playing live shows. I’ve got a few upcoming projects I’m really stoked to share.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Music is probably the most consistent, rewarding area in my life. I think everyone faces personal struggles. For me, music has been an outlet to navigate through all those things. Any setback on the way to where I want to be is just a lesson to grow from. I truly believe in my vision. With hard work and good intentions, whatever is meant for me will come my way.
We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a multi-genre singer/songwriter. The genre varies depending on the project and who I’m working with. I am a storyteller at heart. It’s always a joy writing for other artists and helping them bring their vision to life. What sets me apart from others is I’m not afraid to step outside of the box. I don’t feel the need the put a label on the art I create.
What were you like growing up?
I started singing from the moment I could speak and was always interested in finding outlets to express myself. I got into theater at five years old. From there, I started doing commercials and TV/film projects. In elementary & middle school, I had a lot of friends but I was more interested in staying in and writing stories & songs. I wrote my first song at around age 5 – it was about shoe shopping. I laugh about that now and like to think my writing since then has a bit more depth. My parents say I’ve always had a strong personality. I was overly critical of my own singing and acting even as a young child. My mom has a video of me doing a cover song at eight years old while having a meltdown because it didn’t sound perfect to me. I find it ridiculously hilarious now and it’s a good reminder to be kind to myself in the creative process.
