Alicia began her career in music classically trained on violin before making the switch to bass at age 12. By age 14, Alicia began performing on stage with bands opening for the Doobie Brothers, The Nelsons, Debbie Gibson and The Backstreet Boys and Jars of Clay to name a few.
In the summer of 2002, an opportunity opened up for Alicia to become the bass player for Nick Carter. Nick was taking a break from the Backstreet Boys and was getting ready to release his first solo album. The Nick Carter tour took her to England, Germany, The Netherlands and Japan to perform on television shows including Top of the Pops in Europe, The Tonight Show, The View , MTV’s Total Request Live, The Wayne Brady Show, and Regis & Kelly here in the U.S. Alicia’s irrepressible personality and energetic stage presence shine in the MTV Video for Carter’s single “Help Me”, as well as in MTV’s Making The Video feature.
In 2008, international recording artist Trans-Siberian Orchestra asked Alicia to play bass on a track for their double album. In October of 2009, Trans-Siberian Orchestra released their album Night Castle where Alicia’s bass work is featured on the track “Tracers”.
In 2023, Alicia's musical career began a new chapter as she launched into working on her debut album of original music with Hideaway Recording. The album will include appearances by John Kelly, Joey Interrante, Jeremy Douglas and Gale Trippsmith to name a few. The first single from the album, "Door to June" was released in the summer of 2023 and immediately received airplay and support from Sunshine 96.7 radio. "Door to June" captures the essence of Alicia's collective musical influence which leans on folk lyric styling surrounded by accents of Americana and blues all tied together with catchy pop melodies. The debut album promises to take listeners on a journey of fleeting romance, starting over, heartbreak and new beginnings. Alicia's debut album will be released in 2024.
On any given week you can find Alicia performing with numerous local Tampa musicians/bands on bass or playing guitar and singing as a solo artist.
