Bio

Mention the first name alone, Analisa, and anyone who has seen or heard this singer perform describes her as “amazing”. Analisa is an accomplished vocalist/songwriter/entertainer living in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Analisa holds a B.A. in Music and a B.A. in Psychology from the prestigious University of North Texas in Denton, TX where she graduated cum laude. Analisa is known for her incredible range, precision and sensitivity to all styles of music ranging from classic rock and roll, jazz standards to Latin music. Analisa is bilingual in Spanish and English and is utilized in commercials for both languages.

Analisa has been singing ever since she could first speak.  As a matter of fact, her very first word as a child was “gig”.  This versatile artist has been performing since the age of five years old.  Her “old school” roots started her career off by imitating the likes of Led Zeppelin, Heart, The Beatles, and Hendrix. At the tender age of 16, Analisa received a scholarship to the prestigious University of North Texas School of Music where she excelled in her classical and jazz training.  While in college, Analisa began her studio/jingle career and has numerous jingles to her credit being played all over the country and abroad. A sample of these jingles are located on this site on the “Audio” page. Her jingle clients include: Coca Cola, Rheem Team, Sam Pack Five Star Ford, JCPenney, McDonalds, Hershey’s, Coors Lite, Chilis and the list goes on.  Analisa has also been featured on television commercials locally.  Analisa has sung on numerous professional recording projects for artists such as Patti LaBelle, Pamela Williams, Joe McBride and MC900FtJesus to name a few. Her talents have also been showcased on MTV where she appeared as the female vocalist with the artist, MC900FTJesus on his song, “But If You Go”.

After much soul searching and re-committing herself to the Lord, Analisa finally answered the call to begin the Lord’s “Kingdom work”.  Newly inspired, and transformed by God’s grace, Analisa found her true voice through God’s words and much prayer. “Jesus, He Brings Me Joy” is her brand new Christian CD! This CD has been a long time coming!  The Heavenly Father has been very patient and faithful!  Her freshman effort, this CD truly reflects the joy that God brings to one who is committed to walking in obedience of the Lord’s will.  Her relatable lyrics, catchy phrases  and melodies are written to bring the listener into a state of personal reflection and hope in Jesus Christ for better days ahead. Drawing from her “real life” experiences in the genres of classical, rock, jazz & soul, Analisa has brought those styles together into the mixture of songs for this CD.  She has also written some of the songs in Spanish.  Upon completion of the CD, Analisa was signed to a distribution deal with Spiritual City Music Records.  Analisa’s CD is now being sold on the internet through such stores as : www.amazon.com, and www.cdbaby.com.  Samples of these songs can be heard on this site’s “Audio” page or on any of the previously named online stores. Thankfully, by God’s hand, Analisa’s music was debuted by Dallas’ own Gospel Station, KGGR 1040 and reached airplay on over 300 gospel stations nationwide.   The songs are meant to bless people, edify, and lift up the name of Jesus!  Analisa’s focus is on ministry for the Lord, and can be contacted via email to invite her to minister at your local church.
