Born in Hawaii, and now residing in Brooklyn, New York, this songstress seems to thrive in contrast. Hard to pin her look down, Alanna is a tall mix of Filipino and Caucasian. She learned how to play flute and then made a switch to trombone in high school. Early on, she had a love for anything vintage and appreciated jazz, samba, funk, alternative & electronic music. Juggling modeling and school, she began singing songs like “Girl From Ipanema” and “Corcovado” with a jazz band in college.
Upon moving to New York, Alanna began to write more and collaborate with new producers. She was introduced to Andrew Wyatt ( Miike Snow & Fires of Rome) by a photographer and then formed an electronic band called OKtoberlight. Her first published song was a fun one they wrote together called “Pop Goes My Heart." It was in the film, Music and Lyrics and Hugh Grant sang it.
On this self-released EP, Alanna worked with producers Kip Packard, Joe Davi and Patrick Quade.
Currently, she is recording more songs in New York for her next release.
