about

Alfa's full length album "Spark & Fury" is a culmination of a 2-year endeavor, in which the artist experienced both the benefits and challenges of releasing an album with a label for the first time. Written and produced by Alfa, "Spark & Fury" enlists the talents of Grammy-nominated Nashville producer and oft-collaborator Marc Lacuesta; Hollywood-based producers and songwriters Ainjel Emme and Andrew Furze; as well as Tokyo and LA-based producer Kenji Nakai. Grammy-winning Alan Sanderson was the engineer, overseeing a two-day band studio session between Alfa, drummer Carl Thomson and bassist Austin Underhill, who helped shape song arrangements during weeks of rehearsals.

Inspired by her 5-year adjustment into Los Angeles' unique cityscape, Alfa sees "Spark & Fury" as the product of a late-blooming coming-of-age:
“The record is about accepting myself as I am: all my flaws, adjusting to each ‘phase’ in life, my vulnerability in love and my career; and betting that others can relate,” she says. “And musically, it meant a lot to me to play all the instruments that I know (guitar, piano, violin, ukulele), because I’d reached a point where I learned to trust myself and wanted to embrace that.”

Track Name: Bare Feet
BARE FEET (written by Alfa Garcia/BMI)
I search through windows for something cozy
A yellow light or a bookcase sat just right
I do it every night.
Maybe I'm tired of the suitcase living
Maybe the faces of strangers don't excite me
anymore...

Ooooh this aching heart is
ooooh it's breaking apart
I can't fake it anymore
I wanna settle my bare feet and baggage on the floor.

I've found my fair share of blind romantics
They all seem pretty with no real consequence
'til my heart's in my hands
I want a door with a lock and a handle
a kitchen sink and a floor that creaks just right
and someone to say goodnight, goodnight to me.

Ooooh this aching heart is
ooooh it's breaking apart
I can't fake it anymore
I wanna settle my bare feet and baggage on the floor.

Maybe in the hotel light
a stranger's face can seem familiar
actions taken out of sight
can seem wise... in the meantime.

Oooh...

Ooooh this aching heart is
ooooh it's breaking apart
I can't fake it anymore
I wanna settle my bare feet and baggage on the floor.
