ARTIST · SONGWRITER · FUNKYLICIOUS DIVA
Dynamic, funky and sassy, yet emotional and personal; those are the driving musical notes behind Stockholm-based singer-songwriter Alyza. With a vocal prowess that is comparable to the giants of funk and soul (i.e. Amy Winehouse, Christina Aguilera), Alyza shines with her raw and relatable lyrics about life, relationships, and mental health. What truly sets Alyza apart is her effortless ability to bring her own modern take on soul and funk, seizing the stage with lots of attitude and panache.
Empowering women worldwide, Alyza has no qualms in showcasing her brave and honest recount of what truly needs to be said. Rather than giving a façade of everything being alright, Alyza puts into limelight the darker elements of love and life, finely wrapped together with a bit of humor. Since her debut in 2018, Alyza has performed in various venues in Stockholm, including PSB and the well-renowned Cirkus, as well as having performed at The Songwriter Festival at Lund. Alyza has also competed in the Swedish music competition, Livekarusellen, where she made it to the Top 3 in Stockholm, as well as having competed in the international music competition, Emergenza.
Having spent most of 2019 focusing on recording music under her label, Critti Records, Alyza released her first stand-alone single “Low”. A lounge-y R&B collaboration with producer and songwriter Caj Morgan, “Low” piqued the curiosity of fans worldwide with her expressive vocals and tenacity. Her follow-up release, “Don’t Ya”, which is the first single from her forthcoming EP, further brought new fan recognition, clamoring for more music. She has now released her second single off of her upcoming debut EP entitled “Get In Line” alongside a music video and jam-session outro of the track.
“Get In Line” is a self-proclaimed anti-fuckboy anthem, drawing musical inspirations from The Andrew Sisters, as well as old-school soul mixed with rock-n-roll. Born out of an inward self-reflection of her own relationships and dating experiences, “Get In Line” presents itself with little hints and twists of what’s to be expected from Alyza on her upcoming EP.
