Hello, my name is Alanna Vicente.
I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised mostly in Southern California.
I sing. I act. I write songs. I play trombone too. And yeah, once a model...always a model!
So, the first question most people ask...why and how the trombone? My high school music teacher convinced me I was perfect for the instrument because I had “long arms” -- and he also already had too many flute players. I wasn't sure about it, but then I started to really enjoy the contrast and power of playing with the brass section.
One afternoon after marching band practice, I was scouted by a modeling agency and began my career with Elite Model Management. While living and working in New York, I was drawn to music in a deeper way. I started writing songs and singing out with various musicians. It became clear that the trombone was a fun accessory on stage, so I brought it back for a solo here and there.
In 2009, I co-wrote a fun song with Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow) called "Pop! Goes My Heart." It's featured in the film, Music & Lyrics and performed by Hugh Grant. Currently, I'm performing regularly in Los Angeles w/ the sixties jazz group Alanna and These Fine Gentlemen and Jonny & Alanna. Have a listen to my music below or come see me live!
