Twenty-year-old South London newcomer Arlissa will release her debut single, ‘Sticks & Stones’, on March 3 (London Records). This follows a breakthrough end to 2012, with Arlissa securing a place on the BBC’s prestigious Sound of 2013 list (also featuring the likes of Haim, AlunaGeorge, and Laura Mvula). ‘Sticks & Stones’ was also first performed on Top of the Pops’ New Year’s Special; the first time the flagship programme has tipped a brand new artist, with additional support already coming from the likes of Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Fearne Cotton, Mistajam, Trevor Nelson and Jo Whiley. Not just another pretty face it appears she's a true artist and plans to stay that way. She had an opportunity to sign on with a all girl group but turned it down because of the cliche' they were betraying. Since her feature with Nas Arlissa has signed a management deal between Roc Nation and Three Six Zero, or the team behind everyone from Rita Ora to Calvin Harris and Hurts. She's a pretty talented young diva check her out below.
