R&B singer Alesia Lani has just released her new single “Intentions” featuring G-Jet, and we’re proud to premiere it here on YouKnowIGotSoul.com. The new song comes as the Austin, TX based singer/songwriter is preparing for the release of her second full length album “Resilient” for this Fall.
On “Intentions”, Alesia sings about her skepticism of a man’s honesty in pursuing her, while G provides his perspective on seeing how they vibe first over a sensual yet pulsing instrumental.
Alesia has also been enjoying major appearances and performances in and around the Austin area, including live on CBS Austin and the prestigious KUTX Studio 1A. In addition, she is coming off performances at the Soulstice Festival, opening for the popular Houston band The Suffers, and an appearance at BET Weekend in Los Angeles.
Born in the Midwest, the Texas born singer spent much of her childhood singing and writing songs, as early as age 8. While honing her singing prowess, she also studied multiple forms of dance such as ballet, modern and jazz. Her passion for music never dimmed through the years, in fact it became greater.
By 16 Alesia was being featured on recordings with artists such as Ghost, PeaCE, and The League of Extraordinary G’z, and performed with Dirty 3rd artist Da Ryno during Austin’s South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in 2009. Alesia has also shown a flair for modeling, appearing in a number of fashion shows during the Texas Music Conference, Austin Fashion Week as well as being featured in national music videos such as Chalie Boys “On My Momma” as a member of the Elev8tion Models.
In 2013 Alesia felt it was time to focus on her musical career and began appearing on numerous shows as well as consistently recording and releasing music and catching the attention of numerous blogs. On Valentines Day 2015, Alesia released her debut album “First Imperssion”.
Since the release of the album, Alesia has performed at numerous festivals and for media outlets such as the Austin Chronicle, while establishing herself as a headliner who brings a powerhouse performance every time she graces a stage. She has steadily built a committed following and recently won “Best New Artist” as well as “Best R&B Artist” at the 2015 Austin Hip Hop Awards. The compass on this young starlet is trending up and Alesia shows no signs of slowing.
