Alicia Bridges was born in Charlotte North Carolina. She grew up in the nearby rural hamlet of Lawndale, NC. Alicia began to write songs and play guitar at the age of ten, when her dad Myles Bridges taught her to strum her first chords on his Gibson tenor guitar. At 12, she launched her own radio program in Shelby, NC on station WADA. "The Alicia Bridges Show” aired every Saturday morning, with Alicia at the control board, cueing records and accepting requests like a pro.
At thirteen, Alicia performed with a popular North Carolina group, The Ray Ledford Band.
