Alianna is a Puerto Rican vocalist, songwriter, musician, producer, and director from St. Petersburg, FL, with a musical style heavily based in Jazz/Soul, Alternative R&B, Lofi & Hip-Hop.
"I spent my early years in a church in New Jersey, surrounded by Spanish hymns and Gospel music, where I discovered an early love for music & performing. After my family moved to Florida in '05, I went headfirst into the arts programs at my schools. I received classical training in music & dance for 9 years, started self-learning guitar & piano at 14, and writing songs at 15."
Her senior year of high school, Alianna co-wrote her first musical as a final project (nominated for Best Musical) and starred in her school's production of 'Cabaret', in which she won an award for Best Female Lead.
Even after graduation, despite her efforts to take a more 'calculated' academic route at a University, something always kept drawing her back to music.
"I spent most of my time in my school's music building, at the grand piano in the lobby of my dorm hall, or writing songs in the makeshift recording studio under my bed. Or smoking a joint in the woods somewhere...It became clear to me that I was supposed to be somewhere else."
In the summer of 2016, Alianna dropped out of school and moved to Los Angeles to pursue an independent career as a music artist. Here she began self-learning production and engineering at 18.
Two years and a couple poorly-mixed Soundcloud releases later, Alianna was accepted to attend 1500 Sound Academy in Inglewood, California, with an in-house & Fender scholarship for the year of 2019, where she studied Audio Production, Engineering, Songwriting, & Music Business under the instruction of the highly acclaimed music group 1500 Or Nothin'.
"It's rare to find a group of successful people who are willing to educate and prepare you for something as ambiguous as today's music industry. I continue to learn from them and grow more every day."
Following her graduation in January 2020, Alianna created the organization "UFOs ONLY", dedicated to supporting artists working to create their own authentic lanes & success.
She is currently based in St. Petersburg, FL, and she most recently released her new single, "Take Care", the 18th song to be revealed on her 2021 Progressive Project.
