Alanna Vicente is a chameleon with a love for storytelling through music, modeling and acting. She was born into a military family in Hawaii and soon after settled in Southern California. In seventh grade, her band director convinced her to switch from flute to trombone. He said her long arms would be great for it! (She thanks him for that.) Then one afternoon as she headed to marching band practice, she was scouted by a modeling agency. She signed with Elite Models at 17 years old and has been in the business ever since.
Inspired by singers such as Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, and Astrud Gilberto, she enrolled in a jazz vocal class at Santa Monica College. Soon after, she began performing in LA with various bands…exploring jazz, blues, electronic and pop music.
Seeking contrast, Miss Vicente headed to New York. She was lucky to cross paths with artist/producer Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow) while on a modeling job across the hall from his studio in Soho. They formed an electronic duo called OKTOBERLIGHT. In 2007, they wrote an 80′s inspired song called “POP! GOES MY HEART” for the film, MUSIC & LYRICS. Hugh Grant sang it.
Currently in LA, Alanna is performing often and finishing up an EP with bassist Johathan Flaugher. Two tracks, “GOLDSTAR” and “WE ARE THE NEXT ONES” can be heard here on the home page along with other original songs she’s written. Alanna is signed with FORD MODELS in LA and studies at The Imagined Life Studios with Diana Castle. Her acting resume includes work with notable directors such as Tarsem Singh, Guy Ritchie, Janusz Kaminski, Albert Watson and Marcus Nispel.

When she’s not performing or working, you will most likely find her shooting photos, at the gym, playing beach volleyball, surfing, swimming, playing golf, or on a flying trapeze! You never know!
