With all that’s going on in the world today, more than ever people need music that reminds them that there are people in this world that love them, even during their darkest days.
That was the inspiration behind Weeping Cloud. Life has tons of difficulties, and its okay to feel overwhelmed by it all – but also know that “you’re beautiful and loved throughout” even though you may not feel like it at that time.
Weeping Cloud is a melancholic song about giving yourself permission to feel worthy of love even when you are overwhelmed and when the things you’re having to deal are crushing. After all, nature itself shows us that clouds rain when they get too heavy.
Beautiful Illusion is the title of Alisha’s first EP (‘extended play record’). The collections of songs are about perseverance, growth and healing. They reach down into the hearts of the hurting with messages of hope and understanding.
Beautiful Illusion reminds us that our struggles are an important part of our journey, and that it is okay to hurt sometimes. It also reminds us that those struggles won’t last forever. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, even if you can’t see it in that moment; and, when you get there, which you will eventually do, you will be have grown and become stronger.
The EP itself consists of six (6) songs, plus a bonus instrumental track. They are all very different in tempo and style. Some are acoustic ballads, whiles others are fast-paced dance beats. Together, they tell a story of the struggle and hope of the beautiful illusion.
QUIET LITTLE HOUSE
Quiet Little House is a Christmas song about holding onto the love and memories of people and times that may not be with us anymore. Last year I lost my grandmother and great grandmother within a short period of time. As you can imagine the holidays that year weren’t the same. It was really hard.
So, I wanted to write a song that speaks to that kind of change and the flood of memories we are often faced with during the holidays after losing someone we love. Through that experience I learned that holidays are more than our traditions. They’re about friends, family, the people we love and the memories we’ve made with them. As time goes on and things change, the holidays give us a chance hold on to that love and those memories for they will always be a part of us. And, that’s a good thing.
