Solo artist Alicia Sassano, who goes by the stage name of Aleesha, hits just the right notes of carefree pop and driven dance music to deliver a performance that can fuel the movement of any crowd, from a packed nightclub to a 20,000-person venue with several million more watching live on television. Aleesha has international fame already in her back pocket, and she intends to spread her music and enliven the dance pop niche she has created for herself.
While she is most often compared to Lady Gaga
Aguilera, Aleesha draws inspiration from many musical influences, including Alanis Morisette, Pearl
Jam, Fiona Apple, Eminem, The Beatles, Lana del Rey and Ella Fitzgerald, to name a few.
Aleesha brings her songs to life with the emotions gained from both pain and pleasure in her life, usually derived from her own inner personal struggle or past failed relationships. She puts these in perspective and channels those feelings into her powerful vocal performances.
