Biography

Alesha was born and raised in Welwyn Garden City, a prototype new town, surrounded by the idyllic Hertfordshire hills but a stone’s throw away from the hustle of London, this was the perfect stomping ground for a girl who’d end up making organic, modern and high energy music for a living. As Alesha hit her teenage years there was musical influx of strong independent female role ... Read more in Amazon's Alesha Dixon Store

BBC Review

Modern celebrity is a fickle beast. After it chews you up and spits you out only a few are rewarded for their resilience with one more bite of the cherry; if you're lucky enough this is a chance to be seized more than a moment to be savoured. The seemingly infinite medium of reality T.V has become the route du jour for that elusive last throw of the dice, indeed at this very moment there a six desperadoes swinging from vines in the jungle job-centre, each one hoping to land on a career. What sets Alesha Dixon apart, as she demonstrated from her Strictly Come Dancing performance and subsequent T.V appearances - to apply a Simon Cowell-ism - is her 'likeability factor'.

Capitalising on her recent return to form, The Alesha Show opens with an intro whose bombast recalls Rich Harrison's production with Amerie: a feisty salvo over brass-fuelled funk. Relief sets in. Have we been wrong-footed by our ballroom Barbarella's cabaret garms on the front cover? Is this the Alesha of old? A rhymes-spitting, N.E.R.D video featuring, uniquely British r & b vixen that can ace rather than ape the Americans? The answer sadly is ''no''. Thin on the ground exceptions, the sweet pop 'n' b jam Breathe Slow and the 80s synth-led Hand It Over, struggle to dent the prevailing impression that rather than use the Strictly win as a springboard, the 25 year-old has enlisted the formidable judging talents of Craig, Arlene, Len and Bruno as her musical directors.

Previous Mis-teeq records were helmed by heavy-weight modern soul producers Jermaine Dupri, Salaam Remi, and Stargate (architects of smash One Night Stand). The Alesha Show's cast of writers and producers are moonlighting from better paid jobs with Girls Aloud and Duffy.

When ring tones sell more than cds, talents like Lemar bring out a new album and no one notices; even established acts like Craid David are jumping on the bassline bandwagon to get some, ANY, attention - the Alesha Dixons of the scene are going to have to come stronger than this. Though there's always Celeb Air 2. --Alex Forster

I wasn't a fan of Mis-teeq when they were around, but I was enthralled by Alesha in 2007 when she starred in and won Strictly Come Dancing. As her dancing had given me so much pleasure, when I heard she had released an album I decided to support her, even though I imagined the album would be a cross between The Boy Does Nothing and her rapping in Mis-teeq. It took me about a month to get round to playing it and how wrong was I?

It's a delightful mix of different influences, and so many of the songs are growers with hidden depths. I love Can I Begin, with its autobiographical lyrics and a melody which stays with you all day. Play Me is just as bonkers as Ms Dixon herself - in a good way - and Chasing Ghosts, my favourite, simply HAS to be a single! Her voice is angelic on Don't Ever Let Me Go, a lovely chill out song, and Italians Do It Better makes me smile whenever I hear it. I like the sassiness of Cinderella shoe and Let's Get Excited, although I think they are weaker than the other ones I mentioned. Breathe Slow, her next single, is brilliant at showing her off as a singer. I'm Thru is also well worth a listen.

Low points for me are Ooh Baby I like It Like That and Hand It Over. But that's 2 out of 13, as even The Boy Does Nothing has grown on me!

I cannot wait for her next album!

Format: Audio CD
With this album I was pleasantly surprised, as it happens I was given it, I did not choose to buy it, but had I known that "The boy does nothing" did promise great things I would have been happy to fork out for it. The album spreads across several different styles, and obviously has many influences but still works cohesively as an album, which is not an easy effect to achieve. Stand out tracks include "play me", "the boy does nothing", "chasing Ghosts", "Breathe slow" and my favorite is "do you know the way it feels?" which has an orchestral-pop sound. If you are avoiding this album because you think this will be an album of the rapping she used to do in mis-teeq then buy it! I think it's a shame more people haven't bought this album and I hope that the next single will help it sell better. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Also, when buying the physical CD you can download two more exclusive tracks from her website, if you put the CD in your computer drive.

This album is great. The Boy Does nothing was a brilliant first single but there are plenty of potential singles on this album. Definatley worth buying this album - Alesha at her best.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. Suzanne J. Pellatt on 3 Dec 2008
Format: Audio CD
After hearing the cheesy and everso slightly predictable 'The Boy Does Nothing' I didn't hold out much hope for Alesha's second album but being a fan of 'Fired Up' I thought I should give it a go. 'The Alesha Show' has turned out to be one of the most outstanding albums of the year! The professional finish and some brilliant tracks mean it can easily compare to the likes of Beyonce.
The second single 'Breathe Slow' is one of several haunting down tempo tracks which allow Alesha to show her amazing yet unique voice and I'm sure when it's released this album will start flying off of shop shelves. 'Do You Know The Way It Feels', 'Hand it Over' and 'Don't Ever Let Me Go' are also all extremely strong tracks. If there is anything negative to say about the album it would be the lack of the upbeat tracks which I was dreading before listening. 'Play Me' is guaranteed to get your feet stomping meanwhile 'Let's Get It Started' is solid and a delight to listen to.
Overall though I'm sure you'll be mesmerized by this beautiful album, definately worth the couple of quid!

Format: Audio CD
1. Welcome To The Alesha Show. Even though only 26 seconds, this has a lot of soul. 8/10
2. Let's Get Excited. A brilliant piece of slinky elctropop with R&B influences. 9/10
3. Breathe Slow. Beautiful ballad with a brilliant lush soundscape. 10/10
4. Cinderella Shoe. Sounds like a cut from Girls Aloud's "What Will The Neighbours Say?". 10/10
5. The Boy Does Nothing. The single of 2008. Brilliant Xenomania production with about 22 catchy bits. 10/10
6. Chasing Ghosts. Like the soul-revival of 2008. 8/10
7. Play Me. Song with brilliant drum & bass influences. 9/10
8. Hand It Over. A rap-pop song. Rather like "Some Like It" by Amerie. 10/10
9. Do You Know The Way It Feels. A chill-out cut. 8/10
10. Can I Begin. A Destiny's Child-esque ballad. 9/10
11. Italian's Do It Better. A beautiful ballad, like the new GA track "The Loving Kind". 10/10
12. Ooh Baby I Like It Like That. With the title, you'd expect it to be a club cut. It is. Beautifully dancey. 10/10
13. Don't Ever Let Me Go. A surprisingly upbeat ballad. 9/10
14. I'm Thru. Sounds like "Here We Go" from the GA album "WWTNS?" A Moonbaby cover. 10/10
If you keep on listening.....
15. Mystery. Quite a rocky number. Good still. 9/10

GRADE: 10/10
Alesha Dixon's debut album has similarities to Girls Aloud's albums, as she worked with the same people who produce GA's albums, Xenomania. Brilliant album.
