Songwriter | Artist
Aliana’s earliest influences stem from a pretty diverse set of musicians like Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Linda Ronstadt, Peggy Lee, and Paul Simon. Of this decorated set of musicians, one characteristic held true to Aliana and that was a strong sense of Soul. Catchy rhythms, tense soloist transitions to the chorus, and handclaps laid the foundation for all that she loved with music.
Though music has been a driving force for Aliana, a roundabout route was taken to find her musically driven desires. As a result of her sister’s (Lindsay Lohan) success in Hollywood, Aliana grew up in a very public domain. She spent much of her childhood traveling with family from state to state and sometimes country to country as Lindsay filmed her movies. Though a disconnect from “home” was created, Aliana made the most of constantly being on the move. So many new faces, so many new places, and so many new influences meant one thing; an opportunity to reflect and an opportunity to share her experiences. The medium of choice: music.
“I believe that we’re all born with a specific purpose and we each have a plethora of traits that distinguish us apart from the crowd. My instincts led me first into the music industry, then acting, then modeling, and now back to music. Each of these artistic crafts make up my composition and staying true to my own path makes me feel as if I have found my most comfortable sense of self. Music just happens to be what drives me everyday."
