Hailing from Brantford, Ontario, Canada, Alisha Eich is a worship leader and songwriter with a passion for the Kingdom of God. Alisha's heart for people to know and experience His love and presence is particularly evident in her music and is highlighted with lyrical storytelling, sweet but powerful vocals, and melodic creativity. Although some of her past recordings could be labeled as inspirational/pop, her personal satisfaction in music has always been found serving in her local church through leading and being a part of worship. Her newest music taps into the corporate worship genre of Christian music with hopes of bringing a fresh, creative sound to the mix.
Although her longtime influences range from Carol King to Nat King Cole, you might find more similarities in her music to the sounds of recent artists like Amanda Cook or Bethel Music's Kalley Heiligenthal. Singing as long as she can remember, she developed a more serious interest in singing and playing the piano around age 11. Witnessing Darlene Zschech of Hillsong Church leading powerful worship times freed Alisha to not hold back and to allow God to use her for His purpose. Brook Fraser (Brook Ligertwood) and Hillsong United also changed the way she wrote. She was exposed to music that was of God, but not intended just for the church, and saw teenagers passionately leading worship, being creative, and having fun. This was life-changing. Moreover, living every day around genuine examples of service and leadership exemplified in her parents and family solidified this purpose for her. Alisha's most recent goal, with the musical ingenuity of her brother (and producer) Timothy Mann, is to foster an atmosphere for people in the church to personally connect with the active God of the universe. To be a part of God's freedom through the Holy Spirit's power and leading in their lives. To create engaging, challenging, and encouraging music for the church to sing and connect with, not just to listen to.
Along these lines, Your Name, Everything Changes, and an acoustic version of How Deep the Father's Love For Us are a few songs Alisha has released in the last year. Ramping up to release is her newest, declarative single, Hidden Places, a strong but simple reminder of God's unending presence. It is scheduled to be available on November 6th on all major music streaming services. Following Hidden Places will be a dreamy and beautiful version of the classic Christmas song, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, on which you'll hear her and her brother Tim singing together. Its release date is November 27th of 2020, and it will be followed by Alisha's first full-length album, 'I'm Listening', set to be released in 2021.
Outside of her musical endeavors, Alisha is married to Cody Eich, a talented and internationally recognized tattoo artist, and they have two young children, Phoenix Cody & Gemma Noble.
