Born to Australian mother and Japanese father, Melbourne based 22-year-old singer-songwriter, Alisa, just graduated from University of Melbourne.
At the age of 18, she started writing music with the advice from the famous film director, Yukihiko Tsutsumi, who praised her as “a genius” and “the discovery of a lifetime!” Soon after, “walls” was featured on the drama “SICK’s Spec Saga,” directed by Tsutsumi, as the theme song. In addition, Alisa also won the part of the vocal cast for the central character Angela on American hit TV anime series “Carol & Tuesday” and joined her fellow “Carol & Tuesday” family, Steve Aoki, on the stage of ULTRA JAPAN 2019 festival.
On July 7, 2021, Alisa will make her much anticipated worldwide debut with the EP “Boundaries -SET A-,” six song collection about “me” and “you.”
Music video “Post Stamps” was directed by Yukihiko Tsutsumi. The song, which was written while Australia was in COVID lockdown in 2020, is based on Alisa’s own long-distance relationship with her boyfriend in Japan and the uncertainty of when the two can meet again.
For the music video, Tsutsumi came up with the story of a girl locked up in a room during COVID. 30 years later, the girl breaks out and burns the desolated room down herself which symbolizes her breakthrough for freedom.

●Alisa Self Liner notes！
Find out more about the songs on her debut EP “BOUNDARIES -SET A-“ with Alisa’s very own liner notes!
Alisa crafts all her intimate and personal songs out of her bedroom, offering a Gen Z interpretation of “Bedroom Pop” which has become a worldwide hit in the last few years. This EP will sure to overcome various “boundaries,” including a language barrier, reflecting Alisa’s multi-cultural heritage of zip-zagging between England, Australia, and Japan.
Boundaries -SET A-” also finds Alisa levelling up her music, thanks in part to Grammy winning producers and songwriters including Carlton Lynn, the Orphanage, Graham, Phil Tan and more. She is a voice for a new era, in Japan and beyond.
[From Yukihiko Tsutsumi (film director)]
I’ve met many artists during my long career. As a film director, I meet many talented actors but also a lot of musicians. However, no matter how talented they are, it is always a challenge for them to become successful beyond Japan.
In addition to her talent, Alisa instantly overcomes a language barrier with her English lyrics. When I discovered her, I knew I found an artist who can go global.
Her debut EP “Boundaries -SET A-” is genius and fun with strong and intimate message. It might sound a bit dark, but it goes straight to your heart and you just can’t stop listening.
To me, she is the one-and-only artist with a special gift.
I cannot even begin to express how excited I am to have my music heard by listeners from all over the globe! This world-wide debut would not have been possible if not for all of you who have supported me along the way. Thank you so much for listening to my music thus far, and I hope that you will enjoy this fresh batch of home-made tunes. I believe this to be my finest work yet, and I hope that you will have as much fun listening to it as I did during its creation. It’s been a long time coming, but I proudly present to you “Boundaries- SET A”. Love, Alisa x
