Ex- Winds of Plague Keyboardist, "ALAENA" (fka Alana Potocnik) is prepared to make a statement. Her voice throws an innocently eerie spin on the industrialized alt-pop tracks, backed up by her female guitarist and live drummer. Alaena left the internationally known death metal band to pursue her solo career. After heading to LA and meeting Grammy winning producer Khris Lorenz, they coined the genre "grunge-pop". She continued to produce & write her music independently with the guidance of Lorenz, as well as direct and edit her music videos. With over 35k Instagram followers and various mentions about her music & style (referred to as a Living Andy Warhol Painting) in publications such as PAPER, Wonderland, Pop Dust & PopCrave, her social media engagement continues to draw in new fans (the ATEAM.) New year, new Alaena and expected to hit the ground running with new songs releasing every 5 weeks leading up to her debut EP “UNGUILTY PLEASURES", brand new music videos, new merch drops & shows all over the US!
Thank you so much to Alaena for taking the time to talk to us on Unheard Gems
