Élishia Sharie, the Neo Alternative Rock artist hailing from Los Angeles, CA, is a magnetic and electric force in the music scene. Her music embarks on a mesmerizing voyage across the dimensions of time and emotion, gracefully fusing the elements of classic 80’s rock, the edgy spirit of 90’s alternative, and the unfiltered vigor of punk rock, creating a harmonious blend of sounds that defy generational boundaries. Contrasting this sonic energy is her unapologetically soulful vocal, channeling the spirits of legends like Tina Turner and Betty Davis, making her artistry distinct and unforgettable.
Élishia Sharie’s voice tells a story of resilience, drawing from a journey marked by pain, desperation, and ultimate triumph. After a 12-year battle to recover her voice, which had been devastated by vocal trauma, she emerged from this adversity, delivering her debut single, FIGHT!, a fiery anthem that encapsulates her mission to empower her ever-expanding fan base to fight relentlessly for their dreams, regardless of life’s hurdles.
On September 26, 2023, Élishia Sharie unleashed her debut album, The Phoenix Rises, which was expertly produced by Jay Vincent B, who boasts a musical heritage as the great-grandson of the legendary American folk and blues singer Huddie “Lead Belly” Ledbetter. The Phoenix Rises is not just an album; it’s a vibrant tapestry of musical collaboration—featuring the lyrical brilliance of rap sensation BRIELLE and the electrifying guitar prowess of Kellindo, renowned lead guitarist for the Alternative R&B luminary Janelle Monáe. Together, these artists bring a kaleidoscope of influences and styles to the album, creating music that resonates with a diverse audience in search of solace and inspiration. The album is a powerful testament to resilience, transformation, and the indomitable human spirit. With each track, Élishia Sharie passionately underscores the belief that, much like a phoenix, we too can rise from life’s challenges and ascend to new heights.
Shortly after the release of her debut album, Élishia Sharie’s fierce vocals found their place in the all-female rock anthem, We Can Do It (Remix), collaborating with the acclaimed artist and “Queen of Bassists” Nik West. This remix also features the incredible talents of renowned drummer Cindy Blackman Santana and guitarist Lari Basilio.
