The “COLORS SHOW” aficionados will recognize Alessandra Salinas’s name and vocals from her Al-Doms “Til My Heart Stops” feature. But she’s slowly but steadily been charting a path on Tik Tok prior to releasing her debut single “will this summer b the same” in September. There’s infinitesimal amounts of people around the world uploading singing videos online and there’s also a ton of great singers out there, but a voice as strong and pure as Alessandra’s is a rare find to come by.
Reminiscent of Jorja Smith, Alessandra Salinas’ deliciously smoky tone echoes over an elegant finger-picked guitar. In “will this summer b the same”, she captures a youthful yet mature moment of departure, grieving lost love and rebuilding self-worth. With her debut single pulling from her Mexican-Salvadoran heritage, Alessandra Salinas has just dropped the Spanglish cry you didn’t know you needed. You’re here early, and you’ll be hungry for more.
