Alisa Velasquez’s RnB pop vocals are well-known in her Connecticut hometown. After releasing her debut single, ‘Hold Me Close’, with her partner Hana Sushi Music, her ardent vocal pop timbre will be appreciated by international fans with a penchant for pretence-less pop.
Under the influence of icons such as Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and Celine Dion, Alisa Velasquez started professionally recording as a session singer-songwriter in 2015. After the passing of her mother and the meeting of her collaborator, Alisa Velasquez made her debut with her upbeat track inspired by the blossoming love. The clean, contemporary pop beats are the perfect platform for her vocals that effortlessly share the sticky-sweet haze that comes with being in love.
