Alina Baraz, a 21 year old Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter, is the ''next leading star of the emerging class of leftwing pop singers.'' Alina invites listeners on an explorative journey that challenges their perspective and frees the mind of all boundaries.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio, and the first child in her family born in America, Alina was introduced to music at a young age by her classically-trained parents. At 19, she discovered her passion for songwriting during the creation of her first song Roses Dipped in Gold. Following her discovery, Alina withdrew from college, relocating to Los Angeles to pursue her music career full-time.
Alina eventually caught the attention of electronic musician Galimatias, who she connected with via SoundCloud after writing and recording her own lyrics over one of his previously-released instrumentals, which would ultimately become their first collaboration, entitled "Drift". Alina and Galimatias soon began working on additional songs together, releasing the single Make you Feel plus an EP, which includes Drift and Pretty Thoughts. They recently followed up that project with the new single titled Fantasy, which will appear on the EP Urban Flora this fall, a comprehensive trove of their collaborations to date.
