Alisha Westerman is a Los Angeles-based Caribbean American artist from the island of St. Croix. Her music has folk roots, with jazz, early country and Afro-Caribbean influences.
Westerman's father is sailor and Calypsonian entertainer Llewellyn Westerman. Her mother is a craftsperson from Long Beach who hitch hiked across the country and island hopped through the Caribbean, landing on St. Croix in the 1970's.
Westerman began studying piano when she was six and guitar when she was 12. She earned a BA in Creative Writing from UC Santa Barbara. After college, she focused on poetry and non-fiction, and was awarded a PEN Fellowship and Idyllwild Poetry Scholarship.
