Red Carpet Interview
2013 Honorable Mention – 23rd Annual LA Music Awards
From the quaint town of Carlsbad, CA Alaina describes her music as Country/Pop with some rock and soulful influences. Alaina is a beautiful and remarkable singer, many have said her voice is a blend of Jennifer Nettles, Sheryl Crow and a rasp like Janis Joplin. At only 22, this singer/songwriter has been honored to work with amazing producers, and cowriters in both LA and Nashville. She has three albums on iTunes all nominees at the LA Music Awards, LA Music Critic Awards and The San Diego Music Awards. The first song on her second album was written with Ron Blair of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Her fourth album was just released and it is produced by Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt) on Play Like A Girl Records.
Alaina’s soul driven guide to succeed and an amazing band behind her efforts is probably why she is continually asked to support national acts. Her list is extensive…Jonny Lang, Macy Gray, 3 Doors Down, Aaron Lewis, Anna Nalick, Marc Cohn, Jason Michael Carroll, Lukas Nelson and Promise Of The Real, Lee Rocker, Martha Davis and The Motels, Casey Abrams of American Idol and she supported on the VIP Stage for Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett and The Zac Brown Band. Her next national supporting act will be with Jana Kramer on August 9th. On stage her performance is captivating, when she was opening for Marc Cohn he waited off stage and hugged her after her set, complimenting and congratulating her! She is a season 7 Blind Audition Contestant for NBC’s The Voice and was honored to be named an Artist To Watch in a CBS Los Angeles article.
Alaina’s song “The Curtain Falls” was featured in Linkin Park’s movie “Mall”. Some of her other songs have been featured on ABC’s The Vineyard, The Today Show, The Last Call, Carson Daly’s show, The Hallmark Channel, and The Animal Planet Channel.
