Clarissa writes songs from her life experiences. This comes naturally and performing her songs is her most fulfilling self expression. Writing simple songs about complex things such as love, family, and life in general– issues that most people relate to in a form of a pop/dance/rock tune or a ballad is her own way of channeling her dynamic energy constructively. Though she exclusively performs dance pop numbers, she is also currently writing a few R&B, hiphop, and country genres. Take a listen to her songs–you can’t help singing along or just rock with it.
Clarissa has been singing since the tender age of 2. Her mother shares the story of when a next door neighbor overheard Clarissa the toddler singing the national anthem from start to finish!
Clarissa has electrifying energy that could propel a jet plane. It’s a fire that ignites and sparks her creative energy fueling her musical and dance repertoire. “Feel the passion” is her mantra. On stage is where she is most at home. The name Clarissa denotes a limitless, boundless, and fearless persona, resounding continued spiritual ‘renewal’ and of coming to terms. At any moment, Clarissa can become somewhat of a chameleon and dynamically re-invents herself.

Worldwide phenomenon LA Velvet is a Los Angeles-based band founded in 2010 by front woman pioneer and lioness Laura V, who provides the vocals and fierce guitar-playing skills to the tracks, in addition to song writing. LA Velvet “plays their own version of modern danceable rock that conquers the charts,” described by Obliveon Magazine as a combination of a “’70s Blondie, an 80’s Kim Wilde and a 90’s Gwen Stefani and No Doubt.”

LA Velvet has major endorsement deals with Mineral Case Make up, Coffin Case and Jackson Guitars, who provided the hot pink Flying-V, which has become a part of Laura V’ s signature style.
LA Velvet’s self-produced debut album has sold thousands of copies worldwide, taking LA Velvet on a successful national tour in 2012, reaching out to fans as far away as Germany. Their latest album, The One I Love, was met with favorable reviews by the critics and hailed by Venture Magazine as “a chart worthy collection of sassy vocals, punchy guitar and high energy,” while Peter Amara of Escence Center Stage describes it as “a thunderous mix of indie rock and electronic influences” that effectively “enthralls and raptures the listening audience with its infectious melodies.”
