Aria Alise is a 17 year old singer, songwriter, and musician who grew up amidst recording sessions held in her father’s music studio in North Hollywood, CA. For the majority of her life, Aria was raised on a bustling corner in a dangerous LA neighborhood. Unable to go outside to play because of the prostitutes, gang-members, drug dealers and homeless population, she retreated to her pink bedroom and wrote “Jesus songs” on her Casio piano. When her parents recognized her gift they began purposely exposing her to vocal training, recording and musical study.
Since Aria was raised to the soundtrack of sirens, shouts, gun-shots and helicopters; the urban sound has unsurprisingly had an influence on her music. Urban life has not only inspired Aria sonically, but it has also done so in a ministerial sense. Over the last few years, Aria has also helped to start, promote and launch an after-school skate park for the neighborhood kids. She helps to run concerts, bible studies and evangelistic outreaches there. Aria regularly performs original songs and leads worship in this environment and has inadvertently built a growing fan base from the youth center kids.
In 2021 Aria got the chance of a lifetime to tour with Maverick City Music as a choir member, and since then has been able to take part in many other Worship and CCM events around the US.
"I want to shine the light, and show the love of Jesus in this dark, and broken world. It's never too late to dream again." -Aria Alise
