Singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist Alisa McCance is setting up for her upcoming debut album release, however isn’t new to the country music scene. Lady A, Little Big Town, Clay Walker, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Asleep at the Wheel are just some of the artists she’s opened up for, and also had the chance to be a violinist in a Keith Urban tour video.
McCance is also not a stranger to sharing stages with artists such as Luke Bryan, Josh Turner, Alison Kraus, Gary Nichols, and Ken Johnson, as well as at the Grand Ole Opry and The Ryman with Radney Foster, who is now working on her latest project.
Currently releasing songs from Crossing Rivers, McCance scouted Foster to have his hand in the production. Thrilled with this partnership, she shared, “Having worked with Radney on the stage, it is such an honor to now work with him in the studio and hear my songs come to life. He is someone I’ve admired for years. Radney produced the album I’ve always dreamed of creating. It all magically came together.”
McCance co-wrote a number of the Americana/country tunes with bluegrass influences along with her husband Greg Biek (Little Big Town, Hall & Oats). Not to mention the project features guest vocals from Marcus Hummon, Joanna Janet, Steven McMorran, and Greg Barnhill.
Lively and hopeful, “Roll The Stone Away” is the latest single to drop, embodying the classic country that is beloved by so many. Her passionate and charming southern vocals gently carry on with the pure and crisp acoustics. Tying in faith to a hurting relationship, she sings, “And like the river I am waiting for resurrection, since I lost your affection, and love left town…love will come out standing, so roll that stone away”.
2019 was her first single release, with “Crossing Rivers” captivating listeners with the sweet and uptempo catchy melody. Touching on faith in this tune as well, she sings of no river getting in her way, whether it washes her of sin or has her drowning.
“Fall For You” in 2020 is the heartfelt love song within her catalog, singing, “If I only had one song to sing, I’d fly you to the moon/Even with no gravity, I would fall for you”. The pure and comforting acoustics bring you home to a place much simpler yet more valuable.
The strong and gentle vocals of McCance and Foster of another 2021 release, “Kisses That Feel Like Love”, tug at your heartstrings and open up a new perspective. Although heartbreak is dreaded, your vision only gets clearer and you realize that love takes chances anyway.
With her 90s country inspired album on the horizon, the lush production of her current singles will have listeners craving more of the authentic and inspiring messages McCance has to offer.
