Howell, New Jersey Dance/Pop singer Alicia Madison was first profiled in Clizbeats’ Indie Artist Spotlight back in June of 2011 as a new artist on the rise. Since then she has been gaining more momentum, thanks to the recent buzz growing around her latest single, “I Need Your Love.” The song, which is collaboration with DJ Cova And The House Alliance, was first released digitally back in October of 2012.

The Lenny B remix of “I Need Your Love” was officially released by Tweak Spin late last month on ITunes. It’s success is making more and more people ask the question, who the heck is this Alicia Madison singing on the track? Clizbeats is proudly able to help answer this frequently asked question of many for all those who continue to discover her music! Alicia is a singer from New Jersey who dreamed about performing from a very young age. She sang regularly at events for school, church and various fund raisers.
Those experiences led to an opportunity for her to sing the national anthem at New Jersey’s Blue Claw stadium at age 16. Not too long after that Alicia has began singer with several wedding bands throughout locally, as well as performing in various clubs. While still attending high school, Alicia travelled to New York City every week for voice training with songwriter, Tina Shafer and acting coach, Caroline Thomas. When she was training, working and going to school, Alicia also found time to help with fundraising events, some of which included working with many soap opera stars. Several
people from ABC’s All My Children took such a liking to her, that they invited her to play an extra in two episodes of the show. That was her biggest TV experience at the time, standing side by side with acclaimed soap opera actress Susan Lucci. From that point on Alicia became that much more determined to stay connected to the entertainment business. In college Alica got an internship at the New York offices of Warner Bros. Records. It was there where she met Tommy Page, a former Warner Bros. recording artist turned music executive. (Now The Publisher Of Billboard Magazine)T At the time Tommy was VP of A&R at Warner Bros. He has worked with the likes of Ashley Tisdale, Charice, Iyaz amd many others. One day Tommy got to hear Alicia sing and was impressed with her talent. He introduced her to Gary Salzman of Big Management who is working closely with her on her current projects today.
The spark that has started with “I Need Your Love” is just the beginning of the good things to come from her relationship with Gary. Alicia recently teamed up with the Australian DJ/producers for a new song, similarly titled “Your Love.” She also recently contributes vocals on the song, “Reckless” featuring rapper/actor, Ice T, by Central European DJ, Dehasse. There is also talk of Alicia possibly appearing on another track called “Shine Bright” , coming soon from Sony Music out of Spain! Keep an eye out for more from this awesome vocalist, who undoubtedly injects the right amount of soul into the EDM world.
