Alysha Brilla is a 3X Juno Award nominated artist, songwriter and music producer who creates sound as a healing modality. Brilla is the first female artist to receive multiple Juno Award (Canada's Grammy) nominations for her self written and produced albums. Brilla's work is driven by a deep belief in music's power to transform ourselves and our world.
Brilla's music, blogs and spirituality are inspired by growing up with parents from two different cultural and religious backgrounds; a Muslim Indo-Tanzanian father and a Christian Irish/Scottish Canadian mother. Alysha's music connects global roots sounds with esoteric lyricism; transporting listeners to a place suspended between the earth and the stars; rooting and rising through rhythms.
Touring the world with her band, Alysha's music unites audiences by featuring diverse genders and backgrounds on stage and her distinctive shows have taken her across Australia, South America, Canada, Europe and Asia.
Infusing guitar, tabla, bansuri, horns and lush harmonic vocals into intimate storytelling sets of music or headlining festival stages that have the whole audience dancing and singing along.
During the pandemic, Alysha partnered with fellow Independent Canadian Singer-Songwriter Desirée Dawson to offer virtual sound healing and movement sessions. These were attended by many hearts hungry for connection and community. Brilla continues to offer music as a healer workshops alongside her live performances.
As a 2022 Official Keychange Artist, Alysha represents Canada in an accelerator program for standout female creators in the global music industry.
Alysha Brilla's newest album, "Circle" comes out summer 2022 with live shows across Canada and internationally to celebrate the release. "Circle" is an album ripe with messages of personal and global healing, music to soothe the heart and uplift the soul.
