The UCW Radio Host Louis Velazquez had the opportunity
to have Rock Singer Alexx Calise on the Show.
Delivering a sound that is both fresh and uniquely her own, Alexx
Calise combines hard rock, grunge, and urban-edged pop with crunchy
guitars, angsty lyrics, and an instantly identifiable vocal that is
hauntingly beautiful and completely raw all at once.
Calise grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she spent her
childhood mostly alone or in the pages of a notebook, finding
comfort only in her parentsí vast record collection, which included
everything from Mozart to Led Zeppelin. At 11, she picked up the
guitar to emulate her father, also a talented musician, and began
fusing the melodies she heard in her head with her own poetry and
Now living in Los Angeles, California and continuing along the same
path, Calise is endorsed by over 13 music gear/clothing
manufacturers, she has appeared in several national TV commercials
and shows (including the recent Discovery Channel documentary, "The
Science of Sex Appeal"), and she has been featured in Blender
magazine, Guitar World, and the how-to/method book, "How to Succeed
as a Female Musician" alongside such notable musicians as Lisa Loeb
and The Donnas. Her music is in heavy rotation on MTV/VH1 Networks,
and her single, "Pull It (Bullet)" is one of the highest charting
songs in AUS/NZ.
Currently, Calise is creating the follow-up to her 2007
critically-acclaimed debut album, Morning Pill, writing for her
indie musician's advice column for the L2P Network and GHS Guitar
Strings E-Newsletter, and touring with the P.A.C.E. Program, which
provides entertainment to children in various LA County schools.
Calise is also the other half of "Sound of Cancer," her new music
project with accomplished drummer/songwriter, Dennis Morehouse.
