Over the past few months when an R&B artist would come in to Studio 1A, I would write something like “so-and-so is a great addition to Austin’s small but dedicated R&B scene.” At this point, however, the scene not that small and way more than dedicated, thanks in part to incredibly talented musicians like Alesia Lani. It’s been about 4 years since she decided to start focusing on music full time, and we’re all thrilled that she did. Her voice is kind of hard to pin down; it’s smooth and crystal clear, but at the same time it’s a little fuzzy around the edges, like your favorite vinyl that you’ve been playing every day since you were a kid. She released an Album in 2015, First Impression, and ever since has been stuck in our heads. Alesia Lani stopped by studio 1A to show us some of her self-written tunes, check them out below!
