Making some serious moves of late, singer-song writer Arlissa is welcomed to XOYO to beguile us under her ethereal spell. Growing up between Germany and Brixton, South London, it's audible that this dual-citizen isn’t afraid of cross pollinating between style and genre. Her acoustic renditions have achieved massive success online, accumulating tens of millions of views. Her recent releases, however, fuse her timeless song writing and performance capabilities with a forward-thinking pallet of amiable chart beats.
After recently selling out close-to-home Omeara, the young lady embarks on a UK mini tour, seemingly prepping for what’s set to be a massive year for here. Her recent release “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie” was received with great adoration, surmounting 4.5 million Spotify streams within it’s first three weeks. This isn’t going unnoticed, top selectors around the globe are backing her new material and it is frequenting airwaves as prestige as BBC Radio 1. In the words of MTV; “this feels like her time to shine”.
Here at XOYO, we can’t wait to be a part of the journey. The last night of the tour, in her home town, it’s destined to be special.
