From the quaint town of Carlsbad, CA Alaina describes her music as country/pop with some rock and soulful influences. Many have said her voice is a blend of Jennifer Nettles, Sheryl Crow and a rasp like Janis Joplin. At only 22, she is already on album four! She has been honored to work with amazing producers, and cowriters in both LA and Nashville.
Alaina is a season seven Blind Audition Contestant for NBC’s The Voice and was honored to be named in a CBS article as an artist to watch. Her awards and accomplishments are fueled by her soul driven guide to succeed. On stage her performances are captivating, which is probably why she is continually asked to support national acts. When she was opening for Marc Cohn he waited off stage and hugged her after her set, complimenting and congratulating her! Alaina’s show list is impressive: Jonny Lang, Macy Gray, 3 Doors Down, Aaron Lewis, Anna Nalick, Jason Michael Carroll, Lukas Nelson and Promise Of The Real, Lee Rocker, Martha Davis and The Motels, Casey Abrams of American Idol and she supported on the VIP Stage for Miranda Lambert
, Thomas Rhett and The Zac Brown Band. Her next national supporting act will be with Jana Kramer on August 9th.
Her heart is in working with our military. She has worked with our Wounded Warriors and has also supported our troops with Armed Forces Entertainment overseas, performing in Djibouti, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Turkey, Jordan, and Egypt.
Alaina Blair’s “Gypsy Girl” EP, self titled album “Alaina Blair,” “Here I Am” and now “Love It Or Leave It” are available on iTunes!
“This California pop singer/songwriter is comfortable in several genres including country, rock, and R&B. Her pretty voice sours over chunky guitar riffs. Her voice might remind you of Grace Potter, and while her songs also have that hooky feel, she doesn’t use metaphors in the same way – her lyrics are usually more straight ahead, like what you’d find in a classic rock tune.”
