Alanna is a singer/songwriter/arranger from Toronto, Canada. She began her musical journey at the age of three while studying violin and piano. After years of experimenting with new instruments, she began performing solo shows of original music downtown Toronto while attending High School. Alanna joined Toronto's indie-rock band Still Life Still and got a taste of touring and studio recording. She followed her dream of becoming a professional musician to Humber College where she studied under some of the world's most accomplished jazz musicians, and received her Honours Bachelor of Music, and recorded her first EP of original music, "Tuesday's Coming" accompanied by a string quintet and produced by Eli Bennett. A few years later Alanna was back in the studio with producer Jeff Wolpert recording her first full-length original album, "Accelerate", featuring astounding musicians like Hugh Marsh, Jonathan Goldsmith and the Gryphon Trio. Since then, Alanna's toured around Canada performing her music and collaborating with like-minded musicians. She currently lives in Banff National Park where she seeks inspiration from the mountains, and performs almost every evening in the Canadian Rockies. She has been in and out of her home studio and the Banff Centre for Creative and Performing Arts for the past 2 years recording her newest album of original music.
