Although a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Clif Wallace claims home to more than a few places between the Midwest, South and East Coast. This may explain his versatility as a drummer/band leader having been influenced by all that his experiences growing up in an array of communities would have to offer. With the encouragement of his parents, Clif eventually adapted himself to an ever growing love and affinity for music of all genres not only as a musician, but more importantly, a fan. In his latest project, Clif leads a trio blending new original compositions with hip arrangements of music that he pairs with nostalgic events in his personal life. Recently, Clif Wallace has been heard and seen playing with Saxophone and Clarinetist Victor Goines, and Vocalist Tammy McCann. As well as a host of other great artists such as Bobby Broom, Pharez Whitted, The Chicago Jazz Orchestra, Rodney Whitaker, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Diego Rivera, Robert Irving, III, Marquis Hill, Dan Trudell, John Brown and Orbert Davis. More notably, Clif also leads his own Quintet and other groups as a band leader and producer. Residing in Chicago, Illinois, Clif has become one of the city’s most in demand drummers for many genres of the musical platform.

Bold, sensual vocalist Alysha, mesmerizes audiences with the sultry vocal stylings of jazz and soul music. Her endearing aura bewitches listeners into the essence of love, individuality and self-actualization. Surrounded by incredible musicians who strive to push their music to an innovative level, Alysha's creativity and originality continues to ascend upward. An experience with Alysha is striking, genuine and poignant.
