Alisa Fedele is an emerging Sydney based singer-songwriter whose vocal style evokes energy reminiscent of the world’s greatest jazz musicians.
A classically trained singer with a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Majoring in Performance) under her belt, Alisa found herself drawn to the jazz path, headlining at various renowned Sydney blues & roots and jazz venues throughout 2005 including The Basement, The Gaelic Club, The Heritage Hotel, The Vanguard and The Brass Monkey. But Alisa’s drive for composing never truly escaped, and in January 2008 she found herself taking the stage with some of the country’s great musicians including Mia Dyson, Ian Moss, Marty Simpson, and American artist Jon McLauchlin.
In 2007, Alisa joined Sydney’s premier corporate band ‘The High Rollers Big Band’, performing with them around Australia and internationally throughout 2007 and 2008, representing companies such as the Cancer Institute Premier’s Awards, The Shangri La Hotel, Fairfax, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, among many others.
Alisa left The High Rollers in 2009 and is currently working with her talented new 7-piece band, featuring some of Sydney’s finest jazz musicians. If you’ve experienced Alisa Fedele live, then you’ve been acquainted with the sultry, poignant and powerful vocals that pull at all the right heartstrings, and her uncanny ability to raise any roof with her remarkable musicianship. Alisa’s music effortlessly crosses over genres, interweaving trumpet and piano solos with captivating and expressive vocals. The inspirations she has drawn from artists such as Nat King Cole, Eva Cassidy, Barbra Streisand and Ella Fitzgerald, are immediately manifest.
Currently hard at work alongside engineer Tim Ryan in Sydney’s exclusive Trackdown Scoring Stage studio, Alisa is thrilled to be working with Tim, who is renowned for his work on Oscar winning film Happy Feet, Lord Of The Rings, Ice Age and Baz Luhrmann’s epic, Australia.
There is no denying that the future is bright for this incredibly talented young musician.
