Alysha grew up in the Bay Area and briefly attended San Francisco's School of the Arts (SOTA). She received her BFA in Musical Theatre from the Boston Conservatory.

After about a year of living in New York, Alysha was put in contact with a new and exciting American Idol style competition entitled XL STAR! With nothing to lose and nothing to do on Monday nights, she decided to become a contestant. Eight weeks later she had become THE XL STAR, a title she is thrilled and sincerely appreciative to hold.

Since XL STAR Alysha has played Joe's Pub, Birdland, The Irdium, The Metropolitan Room, Carolines, and almost every gay bar in New York City.

Alysha made her Broadway debut in American Idiot, winner of the 2010 Tony Award for Best Musical and Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical. Since then, she's continued her Broadway career in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, On A Clear Day You Can See Forever and Bring It On the Musical.

For more information, see Alysha's website.
