Alissia Benveniste / Gabrielle Walter-Clay / Brionne Wright
Hailing from Geneva, Switzerland, Alissia Benveniste (bassist and composer) has recently enjoyed great success with her original funk tune “Let It Out," with her band, the Funketeers. A YouTube phenomenon, the video has garnered nearly 300,000 views in four months. This success has spurred a momentum in the bassists’ career and manifests itself in a variety of projects that Alissia is currently undertaking. Be it headlining a number of festivals with the Funketeers, working on her EP and on a new video, Alissia and her band are happy to bring funk to a newer, younger, and digitally groomed generation.
