SINGER / SONGWRITER / MULTI-INSTRUMENTALIST.
“Music is a language of its own that everyone can understand. It brings us together. If I can truly touch even just one person with my music, I'll know that I have done something beautiful with my life.”
- Alisha Peru
"Alisha Peru may have been the most talented [artist her age] to walk through the doors of Allusion Studios..." says Producer and Sound Engineer, Jim Pavett. "Her attitude and ease to work with in the studio shines through in the recordings; her performance is a flawless blend of modern rock peppered with melodic pop sensibilities."
Pop. Rock. Singer-Songwriter. Alternative. Indie. Alisha Peru's genre spans across the board and she has worked alongside world-class artists such as Ken Stringfellow (R.E.M., The Posies, Big Star) and Tamir Hendelman. Her music has been played on over 100 stations across two countries and she is a Two-Time Grammy Ballot Artist (All-Original Music / Written and Produced by Peru).
As a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, she is able to go into the studio knowing exactly what she wants to hear. Her music is currently licensed with MTV, E!TV, A&E, TLC, OWN, and Discovery Networks.
She is a BigNoiseNow Alumna Artist (Christina Aguilera, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Tinderbox Music Artist (Ingrid Michaelson, 21 Pilots, Imagine Dragons).
Alisha Peru has played iconic stages such as The Rialto and Club Congress, was a finalist in the AZ Daily Star Battle of the Bands, has been featured on KGUN9's show, "The Morning Blend," and has performed with her band on AccessTucson Television. Alisha plays as both a solo artist and with a backing band - spanning genres from an acoustic 'Sara Bareilles' type feel, to jazz, all the way to heavy and alternative rock.
Peru is also 1/3 of the progressive rock band, LUX (http://www.facebook.com/weareluxofficial), who just recorded their debut album with Ken Stringfellow (R.E.M.,The Posies, Big Star). When asked what prime-time act they should open for, his response: "Tool. Definitely Tool." They were recently selected from hundreds of other artists around the world to play Treefort Music Fest.
- "Alisha Peru's golden voice has power and finesse. Outstanding musicianship." - David Sander - Arizona Daily Star
- "Glossy, emotional piano-driven pop" - Dan Sorenson - Arizona Daily Star
- "Alisha is an artist whose production is beyond what age & time traditionally reveal. She is firmly planted in who she is artistically... she's got a smooth, almost jazz-like styling that is perfectly suited for a live concert [...] I get the feeling [Alisha] is what Disney wished their talent had turned into... Alisha's hard work and talent commands more respect artistically than what any machine can produce." - Sonny Flex - 8BarsOfFunk
