Alicia is not a chart-topping pop star. She is a singer and songwriter who is passionate about the power of music. She prefers to sing to people, as opposed to singing at them.
Alicia does everything in her power to connect with her audience through memories, experiences, and passion. In a world where music can be “made” at the push of a button, Alicia is an advocate of bringing society back to its roots through the experience of pure, raw music.
In 2017, Stockman was recognized for her craft, winning the Suzanne Millsaps Performing Singer Songwriter Showcase. It was another step in Stockman’s musical journey – a journey that’s included playing barrooms, clubs, and house concerts.
The aspiring young musician joined a rock band in 2010 and went from being shy and reserved behind the microphone, to turning quiet barrooms into rocking dance parties. Her experience in the bluesy, rock-and-roll band only whet her appetite as a musician. It led her to seek out her voice as an artist, not just as a singer in a cover band.
Alicia has always been profoundly influenced by the likes of Patty Griffin, the Indigo Girls, and Susan Tedeschi – all strong female vocalists and songwriters. She takes inspiration from stories, places, and memories to craft songs that draw listeners into an emotional journey. “These are songs about moments – moments that seem fleeting at the time, but we soon come to see them as a major turning point in our lives – that these small moments represent so much more.” Stockman described.
2018 has been a busy year for Stockman. She put together a band, began recording, and is playing live in venues and festivals across the Intermountain West. Stockman is backed by Peter Kilian on keyboards, Nick Price on drums, and Nick Steffens on bass. “These songs take on a different feel and energy with the band, giving the songs new meaning. But at their core, they’re the same songs I write in my kitchen and play in living rooms,” Stockman said.

“Alicia… brings a fresh brave attitude to her music and performances. Her confidence is contagious and her choice of subject matter for her songs show a maturity beyond her years.”
– Houston Music Review
“Stockman’s voice has a quality that instantly resonates for the listener. Her music is pure and raw magic and the band is tight. The result is fun folk-rock with Blues and a little Country flavoring. Stockman’s voice is wonderful, and her writing is solid.”
“[Alicia] brings her audience in closer with her beautiful acoustic songs about loneliness and heartbreak.”
“[Alicia] takes her craft professionally and with an easy grace. She makes and keeps commitments, is communicative, on time, and gracious. These traits are so important to those who book musical talents. Alicia makes your job easy.”
– Christie Dilloway, KPCW The Morning Mix
