ALISHA TODD

Alisha sings the songs of a curious traveller, bringing focus to the beauty of humans and nature alike. Being no stranger to change, her wandering melodies and old soul delivery are accompanied by a variety of her favourite musical friends and often she will stand it alone, with her guitar and loop pedal as her trusty steeds. Her profound affection for fusing jazz and pop with an earthy roots flavour creates a brew that warms you from the inside and embraces your physical being in a musical mumma squeeze.

This EP is available on Spotify.

The first single release from ‘Make Believe’, titled ‘Icelandia’, quickly made it’s way onto the airways, being added to Triple J’s ‘Roots N All’, Gold Coast ABC Radio and Sunshine Coast’s commercial radio Sea FM.

From her humble beginnings being raised on country and 90’s pop in small town Gympie, to opening the lid of Pandora’s box of worldly delights, Alisha has sung her way through it all with a fiery passion that only grows with time. You’ll want to hear it.
