Singer/songwriter and New York native Alexa Kishner has been singing since she was just three years old and has been writing music since the age of 12.
Now 20, Kishner is a believer in the healing power of music and just released her new single “Moving On,” a gentle country-tinged pop track about getting over a not-so-perfect love that’s come to an end and, more importantly, loving yourself in the process.
"I truly believe that music can change someone’s world, as music has shaped me into the person I am today," Alexa explains. "Music has always played a huge role in my life, allowing me to make sense of all of life's hardships and triumphs and I truly hope to help others through my music."

For those of you who don't know me, Alexa Kishner is a pop singer/songwriter who wears her emotions on her sleeves and tries to bring meaning to life’s complexities. Music has been a major part of my life for as long as I can remember and I hope to inspire people in the way that music has inspired me to chase my dreams.
I love writing and performing! Music enables me to connect with people on a deeper and more meaningful level and I am forever appreciative for the interaction I am able to achieve with my audience. When people come up to me after shows or message me saying they were inspired by my music — that’s when it all comes together for me. I can’t put that feeling into words.
Here's the scoop on my new single "Moving On": My new single, “Moving On," is about allowing yourself to be happy; letting yourself feel all of the emotions involved in moving on, but making sure that you're putting yourself first. Allowing yourself to be immersed in these hardships will enable you to move on and be stronger than before.
I’m excited about the release because: I'm so excited about the release. We’ve been working extremely hard on “Moving On” and I’m so proud of the work we’ve done. “Moving On” embraces the feeling one receives when they finally get to where they need to be and are truly happy with themselves, which is so important. I’m grateful that the song is out and I hope people are enjoying it!
I hope fans know that they are never alone. I have been there and I am with them and I am extremely grateful for their support. I hope they listen to the lyrics and understand that being happy should be a priority. Loving oneself is essential and I truly hope people can listen to this song and relate to this feeling of being happy on your own.
Currently, I'm getting ready to release new music and play many exciting shows in 2019!
I'm looking forward to 2019 because 2019 is going to be a big music year for me, full of new music, new videos and so much more that I am so excited about! Stay tuned!
