Jasmine Aleisha is a singer/songwriter from a small NSW Regional town in Australia. She has a unique style and voice, some say it’s unlike any other voice you have heard. She bases her sound and vibe around the Jazz and Soul genres. Her main inspiration comes from the late Amy Winehouse and also from Adele. Jasmine has a unique ability to create new songs live in front of an audience, this guarantees that everyone receives a unique experience wherever she performs. Her focus is to make music a memorable experience, not just for herself but for everyone that hears her perform.
‘The one thing I love about music is when you can see it change somebody’s mood in an instant.’ – Jasmine Aleisha
