About Alicia

Alicia Enstrom is a classically trained violinist, composer, producer and reformed circus runaway (Cirque du Soleil and lead violinist with Barrage) who plays high and loud, tinkers with tech, can high kick and fiddle simultaneously and/or play hanging from her ankles on a spinning hoop… oh, and loves to use music to stir the pot of your subconscious.

She is a unique artist whose work spans that of classical, orchestral, pop, fiddle and ambient electronic.

Alicia has performed on stages throughout the world as a soloist (Royal Albert Hall, Samso Island, Cow Palace), for blockbuster movie soundtracks and video games (Call of Duty, Madden NFL, The Walking Dead), alongside Billboard 100 artists (Willie Nelson, Paul McCartney, Dolly Parton, Chris Stapleton, John Legend), on TV awards shows (Grammys, ACM, CMA, CMT), and with the most recognized symphonies in the world.

She has released numerous self-recorded/produced projects of which she performs live with looping pedals…and sometimes on a hoop…or in the splits betwixt two amps.

In 2018 Alicia won The Ear Classical Composition Competition in New York City with multiple performances at the DiMenna Center for Classical Music…via her looping pedals and with orchestra.

Alicia’s compositions can be seen in short films, commercials, interactive video art and installation, and commissioned orchestral and dance performances and she was a top finalist in the 2020 Sundance Film Music and Design Lab.

Alicia won the International Songwriting Competition for Instrumental Music in 2021, was nominated for an Academy of Country Music – Specialty Instrument Player of the Year Award 2020, was the winner of the Unsigned Only International Songwriting Competition in the Instrumental Music Category for 2020, performed in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular NYC both 2021 and 2022 seasons, toured with Kelsea Ballerini for her Heartfirst Tour 2022, recorded fiddle for Luke Combs newest album, Getting Old – Five Leaf Clover and is currently on tour with Ed Sheeran.

She releases music under her name as well as a series of monikers – including Under the Stars.

Originally from Kansas, Alicia graduated from Vanderbilt University magna cum laude.
