Be completely and bluntly you.
AleshaNicole, born and raised in Southfield, MI, seems to have been singing and playing music ever since birth. Her mother, a vocal music specialist and former music teacher, has been a great motivator. Her older brother, Phred "Phredley" Brown, has also been a great inspiration. Growing up in a musical household, with frequent jam sessions in the living room, Alesha was surrounded with musical talent (her father is a pastor who also sings). She began writing songs at the age of 12. Her life experiences not only provide great material for songwriting, but they also have given her a heart for helping people. This desire to reach out to those in need really grew in college. She graduated from Oakland University of Rochester Hills, MI with a B.A in Spanish Language & Literature and a B.A. in Women & Gender Studies. Alesha aspires to use her double Bachelors in the near future, paired up with her musical talent, and open up her own educational and therapeutic center of creative arts.
Alesha has been playing piano for twenty-three years and became a full-time dueling piano player in 2011 with Midwest Dueling Pianos. She also plays alto and soprano saxophone and guitar. AleshaNicole writes, arranges, sings, plays, and produces her own music and often features other musicians. AleshaNicole plays at colleges, weddings, corporate events, conventions, fairs, festivals, and other venues all over the United States. Alesha has become a frequently requested player through Midwest Dueling Pianos, and "...has been a crowd favorite with her strong vocals and big smile..." (as described by Aaron Picar of the Southeast Missourian).
AleshaNicole released her first album Smiling Through Tears April 2012, available on multiple digital stores, including iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify. She plans to release her second album August 24, 2014.
Let what's creative be native to the world inside you.
There's only one you. The world needs to see more of you, so be that.
I have the gift to uplift.
