Sisters, Songwriters, and Performers: Alisa & Mia Berindea Play Golf and Cherish Time Jamming Together In The Car
by Melissa LaScaleia
Introduce me to you and your family.
Mia: We live with our Mom and Dad in the Market Common. We’ve been playing music for as long as we can remember. We are also songwriters; we started writing at age 12. We started gigging live performances two years ago. Now we’re very focused on doing live stuff and seeing people react right in the moment.
Alisa: We both play guitar and piano and sing. I write the lyrics and Mia writes the melodies. We are a duet act and share all responsibilities and the spotlight together.
Why did you move to the Market Common?
Mia: We’re from Ontario, Canada. We really enjoyed vacationing in Myrtle Beach. My Dad’s work offered to move him to the States, and we saw the Market Common is a growing area, a nice place for the locals, and that it would be a great place to live.
Do you have a favorite place in the Market Common?
Mia: I love walking around the lake, and seeing the wildlife. I like Travinia. The first time I went, I saw a jazz band and I got to sing with them, which was cool.
Alisa: Barnes & Noble. After I go to work out at the gym, it’s a nice sanctuary for me to read.
What’s your favorite thing about living in the Market Common?
Mia: We have a really awesome community pool. And I love all the live music and art shows here.
Alisa: The weather and how I ride my bike everywhere. And I almost always bump into somebody I know when I’m out and I love that.
