Alverlis is a Worship Leader and Songwriter born and raised in New York City. Music was always a very natural part of her life as her father was a singer-songwriter with his own band in the 70's and 80's as well as a guitarist. Alverlis grew up singing with her dad as he played guitar and she loved every minute of it; especially the songs he would write just for her! She picked up a guitar after she had a personal encounter with the Lord in her teenage years and began to teach herself however she could by asking musicians around her and learning her first chords from her dad. She soon discovered the joy songwriting gave her and she has not stopped making music ever since. Alverlis is passionate about music and songwriting as she feels that it is her way of sharing her experiences and love of the Lord with everyone. She often calls her music, pieces of her journal through song. Alverlis ministers at various youth events, concerts, retreats and liturgical services throughout the country; as well as collaborating in past Youth2000 New York events. She also collaborates in local religious communities, such as the Sisters of Life, where she serves as Co-worker. She has routinely lead worship during the Eucharistic adoration portion of Catholic Underground NYC alongside the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Alverlis currently works closely with the Youth and Young Adult Office of the Diocese of Brooklyn as well as the Office of Vocations for the Diocese for which she is their worship leader for Holy Hours held in Douglaston. Alverlis co-wrote and interpreted the song "Live to Worship" which was New Name's first single. She hopes her new current album titled 'Love changes everything' leads the hearts of both believers and non-believers into a place of complete surrender and worship. You can find Alverlis' music on Itunes, Amazon, Spotify, I heart Radio as well as Catholic radio shows such as Catholic Playlist Show and Immaculate Heart Radio.
