Los Angeles’ own singer/songwriter Alisha Zalkin will release her sophomore EP On This Road on June 10, and celebrate with a live performance at Bar Lubitsch in West Hollywood on June 16.
Recorded in Los Angeles at both The House of Blues Studio and Sunset Sound, and produced by Steve Greenwell (Joss Stone, Andy Grammar), On This Road captures Zalkin’s sweet yet powerful voice, catchy melodies and feel-good, uplifting lyrics. Woven into her beautiful live performance is a down-to-earth sense of spirituality, elegance and grace, reminiscent of iconic female artists before her like Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Quite appropriately, On This Road begins with an homage to Carole King, a cover of her song “Way Over Yonder.”
On This Road follows Zalkin’s 2012 debut EP March to a Different Beat, which landed her on the homepage of GRAMMY.com, as well as being featured in American Songwriter, M Music & Musicians Magazine, Spirituality and Health Magazine. Since then she’s had a partnership with jewelry and lifestyle brand Energy Muse and the Playing For Change Foundation, and is currently heavily involved with the David Lynch Foundation, Children of the Night, and the International Conference On Violence, Abuse and Trauma.
The first single from On This Road, “Fearless,” was inspired by Zalkind’s childhood friend who was diagnosed with lymphoma, and it addresses the courage it takes to live every moment to its absolute fullest. Its accompanying music video, directed by Dominic Soo and produced by Timbre & Post, brings people from all walks of life together to interpret and express their own version of fearless.
