Biography

Actor/singer songwriter Alicia Witt has had a nearly three-decade long career, starting with her film debut, in 1984, as Alia in David Lynchs science fiction classic, Dune (1984). Witt was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, to Diane (Pietro), a high school teacher, and Robert Witt, a photographer and science teacher. Her ancestry includes Irish, Italian, French-Canadian, Polish, and English. Alicia is an accomplished singer/songwriter. A classically-trained pianist for the past five years, she has been performing her original piano-driven rock all across the world, and has opened for Ben Folds Five, Jimmy Webb and John Fullbright. Her self-titled first EP was released on iTunes in 2009 and her Kickstarter-funded first full length album, Live at Rockwood, which was recorded at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, was released following a self-booked national tour in 2012. Witt performed live as the musical guest on CBS The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (2005). In 1994, Witt appeared in the critically-acclaimed Fun (1994), which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. The film, directed by Rafal Zielinski, depicts a tale of two disturbed young girls whose quest for fun leads them to murder. Witt received the Special Jury Recognition Award at Sundance and a nomination for an Independent Spirit Award. In 1998, she starred in Columbia Tristars hit horror movie, Urban Legend (1998). On television, Witt has made guest appearances on the phenomenally successful HBO series, The Sopranos (1999), and the Emmy award-winning Ally McBeal (1997), in which she sang opposite Randy Newman.
