Alesia Panajota is a singer/songwriter/recording artist born in San Mateo, California where her interest in music began. When she was little she sat under the piano while her mother played pop tunes and boogie woogie by ear mostly. Her father was tone deaf tho loved the old jazz standards and would wear out the record grooves. Her brother was pushed to play the piano but was never really that into it. She got her first guitar at age 10. Her very first instrument was a harmonica as she was in a harmonica band for awhile. She hid in her room and sang along to Beatle records. She also was into folk music. Started writing songs and got hooked. She has sung in different music groups along the way. Majored in music but didn't complete her degree and instead just got out there and played.. She has performed in cafes, clubs and festivals since the late seventies. Teamed up with other singers and wound up in an all women's band, playing folk, rock and blues.
She went on the road throughout the midwest, south and southwest hiring pick-up bands in the eighties and nineties. She was supposed to debut in New York when her father passed away suddenly and came back to the west coast and hung up her touring shoes, doing shorter runs after that. She has played in the bay area and beyond since with Blues Per Square Inch. and is joined by Louise Mcternan on flute, one of the original members who came up with the band's name back in 1987. BPSI cut its’ teeth in the south and north beach blues jams. The other musicians are Tim Landis on guitar, Phil Bryan on bass, James Washington on piano, Dan Daglow on trombone and Pepe Jacobo on drums. Her sound is an eclectic blend of jazz, blues and rock with a hint of gospel and funk. She was signed to an independent label in Florida and has had some radio air play.
