Battle Is Over But Not The Fight

Sun Tzu said “know thy self, know thy enemy.”  I wrote ‘Need to Know’ years before John Newman’s song.  I know my honed skills, and I know my unwavering discipline is what fuels me to write and perform music.  It will never stop.  My creativity will endure long after other artists wither and fade.  Universal heard my music years before they gave it to John Newman to record.  It was my song.  I wrote it.  But when they heard it, they quietly kept it, and then tried to pawn it off to a lesser artist who clearly could not make music beyond the songs given to him.  The evidence is there on YouTube for all to hear.  But, I cannot tolerate the legal battles any further.  I will not be weighted down with courtroom squabbles that never even come close to the point where a jury could hear my music side by side with Newman.  I see an even longer road filled with distraction and delays.  If Universal excels at one thing, it is prolonging legal cases.  And working with lawyers these past few years has shown me that the system is not meant for people like me to simply put my song next to Newman’s song for a jury to hear.  The system is not setup that way. So, it is with reluctance, but with clear resolve, that I will move past Universal and allow my case to close.  I cannot look to the future if I remain stuck in the past, as I have been for the last 4 years.  But, I now know my enemy, and I know their strategy.  My fight with Universal will one day be rekindled, and when it does I will use everything I’ve learned from this experience to crush them.

Clarity During Covid

  Being at home through Covid this year gave me a chance to really look at my life, it made me really appreciate being an Independent singer-songwriter, fighter and entrepreneur. Being told what to do by the government didn't sit well with me. It made me really happy that this is not how I have to live, because when it's all over I will be doing my own thing. But others in music will still be being told what to do, what to sing and say. That's no way to live for me, and staying silent through Covid gave a rare chance to reflect on my life; and then make the adjustments mentally and physically I needed to do to get better.  I have achieved many of my goals, but not enough. Once I achieve my next ones which involve professional fights and cash cow sales goals, I'm going to get even (big time) and do a number on some people who have screwed me over and stolen from me. And I'm going to have so much fun doing it.   Since everyone tells me the 'Top Of The World' album is the best, I'm going to get up and work harder, so I get as many people as I can to hear it. So many people say how my music and fighting has changed their lives - this makes me appreciate even more what I am doing.  Every day when I'm rehearsing I think about all these compliments I get. They are just so sensational. For instance, I was told by Golf Magazine's Top 50 golf instructor Rick McCord after hearing me sing, "You are going to be huge success doing it your own way. It may take a lot longer, but the cream always rises to the top." So you know what, we shot a TV commercial to promote 'Top Of The World'.  I am convinced if I maintain a rigorous work ethic there will be blockbuster sales for us. So get ready, because you know we have to sell this album. It's bread for strength - it literally makes you want to get up and do something.  So this is just the beginning!   Stay tuned for the TV Commercial & get the sensational 'Top of The World' album Download here:  https://alisaapps.com/products/top-of-the-world-digital-album

SONG-STEALING JOHN NEWMAN BREAKS TIES WITH UMG

If you steal from Team Apps, we will find out.  And when we do, we will come after you legally and very publicly. We now have safeguards in place, and the right lawyers, so we will never stop until we win. We enjoy collaborating with other artists, and we love creating music, but if the corporations or the powers-that-be decide to ever again steal our music, we won’t care about their excuses.  We will fight them at every turn.  We exposed John Newman as a plagiarizing hack, who lacks the genuine talent Team Apps has consistently demonstrated year in and year out.  So, it’s no surprise that Newman and Universal Music Group have parted ways. Because of our lawsuit and everything we have done to expose Newman, we join a growing number of artists who won’t tolerate theft of our work.  It is unmistakable that Newman’s song "Love Me Again" copied much of Alisa Apps' song "Need To Know", which was written years earlier.  Check out our side-by-side comparisons and street interviews on YouTube to hear for yourself. We have, and will continue to have, a great relationship with the fans and with the people, and we will keep Rising. UMG tried to pacify Alisa Apps before, but they failed; and now John Newman is out for good.  The fight will continue. Alisa Apps & Team Apps

MY LAWSUIT AGAINST UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP / JOHN NEWMAN | Q&A

Q: What is going on with your lawsuit against Universal? A:  I had – and still have – a great case… but there were complexities in the legal system and the court rules, that weren’t considered by my attorney, and my case was thrown out before I even got to a jury.   Unbeknownst to me – and to my lawyer as it turns out – Universal is a complicated web of parent and subsidiary companies, all with similar names but different locations and purposes, and my lawyer… sued the wrong one.  I’ve since learned this is a frustratingly common tactic for large corporations to avoid being sued.  Believe me, I was pissed beyond belief when I found out about this, but unfortunately, the problem couldn’t be fixed, so the judge threw out the case.  And to make matters worse, the statute of limitations had run by the time all of this was revealed, so I couldn’t simply start over by suing the right subsidiary of Universal.  Q: If you lost your case, how are you still able to say Universal stole your music?  A:  This is a great question, because it’s somewhat misleading to say “I lost my case.”  My case never got to a jury.  I was never able to have my expert testify that John Newman’s song ripped off mine.  I didn’t get to investigate the people at Universal who had my song years before Newman released his plagiarized version.  I never really got a chance to even… present my case.  I still say, listen to the songs side-by-side.  It speaks for itself.  Universal had my song, they liked my song, but they gave it to another artist to sing without my permission.  If this case got to a jury, they would hear exactly what you all have heard.  Blatant plagiarism. But, unfortunately, I’ve learned the hard way that the legal world isn’t quite as straight forward.  Universal has a gigantic team of lawyers all waiting to pounce on anyone, like me, to make sure cases, like mine, NEVER get in front of a jury. Q: What is next in terms of a lawsuit? A:  OK, so…I have found new attorneys.  And they have presented some possible solutions, but I am MUCH more involved in the brainstorming and legal analysis going forward.  I trusted my attorneys before… trusted that they knew the legal rules and would sidestep any landmines… but I’m not making the same mistake twice.  This time I’m educating myself on the law and how my case should progress, and I’m definitely involved in the decision-making process.  In the meantime, all I can say is that I will be updating you all as things move forward, and if you have questions, I’ll do my best to answer them.   Thanks!  Alisa Apps  

YOU AND ME MAKING MONEY

For those of you who have pre-ordered my album, I want to THANK YOU and tell you that you have just become a member of a “super group”.  While PRE-selling my highly anticipated ‘Top Of The World’ album, we are getting interest from every corner of the world, and remarkably 80 percent of all pre-orders sold are physical CD’s. It’s starting to remind me of Adele type record sales where lots of physical albums were sold. This is truly exiting. Because of the interest in, and significance of this album we will be moving the official release date a few months later, rather than January 26, 2018. The “super group” will still get their TOP OF THE WORLD digital album and/or CD sent on January 26th. So SUPER GROUP, you are being rewarded for being the supers who believed in me and put your hands in your wallet when I first announced the launch of TOTW.  Today I closed a deal with a digital strategy company. Watch, we will have a brand-new website ready within 2 weeks. It will be set up to handle the volume of sales anticipated. There will also be stunning new t-shirts for girls and guys and snapback hats among other great things.  Since the beginning, I always knew I was different. This way of thinking has completely pushed me to work even harder, be badass, bring you groundbreaking new music (which you will get to buy soon), and now I will be pushing the envelope even further this year with an innovation that will make MY FANS MONEY. I am so excited to announce my brand-new music and merch sales technology. The most active FANS using this unique system could be paying off their car notes every month.  I am self-financed, self-directed and I am the only one in music who is fighting the crooked music industry and their over-hyped popstars (Knockout Popstars). I have a federal lawsuit against the largest music company in the world (Alisa Apps vs Universal Music Group) for copying my song ‘Need To Know’. It’s been tough. I’ve been a lot on my own and it hasn’t been an easy path. This is my journey. You are on a different journey. But I think this one we can come together and make history. But now get ready because together we are going to say f**k you to big business, f**k you Spotify.  I will be filling you in on ALBUM date and My FANS MAKING MONEY details in my upcoming newsletters. But I need you to join my mailing list HERE.  Together we are rewriting the rules and changing the game forever.  NEVER MISS A THING, SUBSCRIBE TO MY NEWSLETTER HERE.

MY OFFICIAL CHALLENGE TO POPSTARS!

Published November 2015 Where do we see Americans making great mainstream music today?  We don't.  It doesn’t happen anymore! The music business in America is in the worst state it’s ever been. We don't have virtuosos anymore. This country used to be known for its incredible talent; but no-one could say that today. How long has it been since you heard an individual with a really unique voice fighting for what they believe in and singing their own songs? You don't hear it because the music business has…
