Alicia Blickfeldt bio
Alicia Blickfeldt's new album, Of Light ~ Escape to Another World debuted on the Billboard Top 100 at #13 on the Classical Crossover Album chart and #14 on the Classical Album chart.
She has been twice nominated for the Utah Music Awards, has been featured in LDSLiving.org, Meridian Magazine, Classical Crossover Magazine, LatterDaySaintmusicians.org, and other newspaper and online publications.
Alicia has sung throughout the country, with the Salt Lake Pops Orchestra, Davis County Symphony and others, as well as internationally.
This Northern Utah based singer, spent the last two years seeing her first album, Of Light ~ Escape from Another World, come to life. She found that blending a few unlikely genres created something that felt a little more like “home.” Although it falls into the Classical Crossover space, Alicia calls it, EpiClassical. “Because the sound is so big!" she says, "It’s like Lord of the Rings meets Skyrim, meets epic orchestral music infused with my voice.” The album released September 7, 2019.
As a solo artist, Alicia is unique in another way, “I starting my music career much later in life than most people, which created a chasm from where I was, to where I intend to be," she said, " I didn’t start when I was 20, and I don’t have 20 years ahead of me, so I'm on a fast learning curve. I’m just going for it."
In 2013, Alicia, a Latter-day Saint musician, began her career in music. That very same year she was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Being the determined force that she is, it only slowed her progress. After much prayer and reliance on her faith, this singer healed herself holistically. 5 months following, in the fall of 2014, Alicia was run over by a truck. Refusing surgery for multiple broken and fractured bones, she chose again to heal naturally. "That was a rough year, but I was back in heels and singing by December," she said. "Life is short. If you want something, even if it scares you, you'd better get after it." Alicia's book, They Said I Would Die, is available on Amazon.
In the future, Alicia has plans for more "OF" albums, as well as music videos which will tell the stories of each song she has created.
