MN Nice: Alisha Vertel – Black and Blue Debut EP
I recently had the pleasure of sitting down and listening to Alisha Vertel’s debut EP, Black and Blue. In short, the shit knocks — from track 1 to track 7. It’s definitely going to stay pumping in my earphones for the next couple weeks. Needless to say, I’m impressed. There’s an energy to each track. Strong vocals, partnered with phenomenal lyricism and superb production, will make Vertel something to be reckoned with for quite sometime. You heard it here first, folks. I expect big things from this woman.
So who is Vertel?
From what I’ve gathered from the net, which isn’t much, she’s a professional songwriter, singer, and producer from Minneapolis, who’s now chasing her dreams, rather successfully I’m assuming, in Los Angeles. I’ve been following her for a while now — since she was just posting videos of herself singing on Youtube, so to see the strides she’s made in such a short amount of time is downright inspiring and speaks volumes about her drive.
