Alina began her dance and music training at age 6, fusing these two performance methods early on. She got her start in the LA scene playing as a hired gun in countless bands and performing in multi-disciplinary art shows. In 2016, Alina began her solo project and solidified her status as a force to be reckoned with during her residency at The Bootleg that “permanently raised the bar for all bar performances in the city of Los Angeles” (Grimy Goods). It was an ambitious group of shows, consisting of complex band arrangements, guest singers, string ensemble, and dazzling visual projections. Since then, she continues to bring a dramatic and eclectic approach to her performances as well as her recordings.
With her debut full-length record, You Will Learn, Alina examines what it means to be human in the increasingly chaotic and terrifying science-fiction dystopia that the current moment can often feel like. It comes out on May 29th, 2020.
