Alessiee is a Russian recording artist, songwriter and entertainer. She was born on May, 21 and raised in a small Siberian town Mezhdurechensk.
Alessiee began performing as a child and the earliest amateur recording was made when she was only 4. Alessiee shares her memories: “I remember how my dad took his guitar, called me and in the kitchen we used to sing together. I was very young and quite often I even did not understand what I sang about or just incorrectly pronounced the words. Moreover I was partially deaf and did not hear the rhythm and my dad always stopped playing and tried to explain me what I was doing wrong. But it was decease which was diagnosed and managed. At age 6 I could hear everything so singing with my dad was a great pleasure for me”.
As a child, Alessiee attended dance classes and was great in ballet and gymnastics winning some school competitions. From a young age Alessiee was always fixing to be a star and she could always be heard singing, dancing, acting. Alessiee remembers: “Recently I’ve watched one family video and burst out laughing, I saw little girl maybe 5-6 years old, who took the comb and pretending to be a singer, trying to sing Mylene Farmer song played on the background. I remember this song, it was Sans contrefacon. Definitely I did not speak French, so I just lip-syncing”.
Alessiee made her local stage debut at age 10 participating in the musical with a song composed by her father. Later, at the age 14 she became a member of club where during an year she sang, danced and joked (it’s sort of entertainment and competition, panel games).
At the same time Alessiee discovered American music represented by Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, N’Sync, Christina Aguilera. Admired she began to learn English intensely and afterwards it helped her to take the second place in the local competition between English speaking scholars.
At age 16 Alessiee recorded her first song in the studio, cover version for Sometimes by Britney Spears. Then was a long break in singing she moved to Novosibirsk and plunged into study in international relations. Soon she wanted to leave university in the pursuit of a career in music but her parents were quite strict and did not allow this idea to come to life. So during 3 years Alessiee was torn between studies and music. Student life was quite action packed. She was involved into creative activities participating in the song contests (Best debut with a song Whole Again by Atomic Kitten, Best performance with the song Come on over by Christina Aguilera) and concerts in Novosibirsk.
After graduation Alessiee moved to Moscow to make her dreams come true. In 2007 she auditioned for Fabrika Zvezd (American IDol equivalent) but did not meet the requirements. At that time she doubted between two options: to be a vocalist in a band or solo artist, so auditioned and participated in the different projects.
Alessiee began writing songs in 2009 inspired by Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Queen, Adam Lambert, Avril Lavigne, Julie Zenatti and her adored ones, BSB and Britney Spears. One of the first songs, Chaotic, was picked up by radio station. It was first music success. This song was initially written in tandem with one musician but was unnoticed by audience. Chaotic was rearranged by Alex Menco and it turned down to be a mega hit played in many Russian cities and on resorts in Turkey and Cyprus in 2010 together with one more song, arranged by Alex Menco (Lonely).
Currently Alessiee is working on her debut album which is going to be a mix of emotional, hot and catchy HQ songs. Album includes tracks in English/Russian languages and covers different music styles. All tracks were written by Alessiee, the following musicians helped her to realize her music ideas: Danil Mikhailov, Alex Curly, Alex Menco, Roman Styx, T.Y.
In 2012 Alessiee has already released three singles available on iTunes, Amazon, Zune. These singles are absolutely different but brilliantly made: Holding On – wonderful ballad, Walk Away – hot r’n’b track, Bittersweet – dance mix.
In the nearest future Alessiee plans to release some more singles, launch promotional campaign for her debut album, create videos for singles and start to collect materials for her next album.
