Every human spirit is eclectic, unique, and colorful. Alisa Ohri delivers a self-penned song book about what it feels like to be human. Her refreshing blend of R’n’B, Soul, and Jazz is as necessary as air! Alisa’s tone is rich, haunting, and uplifting. When you breathe in her voice and her lyrics, you’ll feel like she wrote about you. She’ll have you laughing and just-plain-celebrating being ordinary!What better place to experience life than in Manhattan? Based in New York City …a place where ordinary folks come to work out extraordinary dreams, Alisa thrives upon being a full-time musician! When asked to explain… “You see, it’s like belonging to this incredible club! It’s not exclusive in any way! In fact your only requirement is to say ‘yes’ to your dreams. This crazy recognition thing happens when you bump into fellow New York City artists. You get this kind of glint in your eyes. You give each other that nod of understanding … and you silently say to each other: ‘We’re doing it! We’re really doing it!’ And then you smile and say: ‘Have a great gig!’”
Regardless of the musical situation, Alisa Ohri never misses the chance to deliver. Whether she’s in a Rock group with Stephan Jenkins (Third Eye Blind), opening up for Roy Ayers, collaborating with world renowned R’n’B/Funk bassist Hubert Eaves IV, singing/writing a Wendy’s Jingle, or “settin’ New York City’s Zinc Bar on fire” with much-acclaimed Jazz Guitarist Ron Affif, – Alisa Ohri delivers her vocals with a punch that leaves you asking for more! Called by some the Millennium’s answer to Sade and Roberta Flack with sass – spiced up with the retro nostalgia of Ella Fitzgerald – Alisa’s vocal knock out to the soul just plain feels good!
