• This rising star and natural performer has been drawn to the spotlight since age seven, when she first hit the stage and began her career in a musical production of The King and I at Paramount Theatre. After drawing larger roles and working with the Fox Valley Repertory theater, Ali’s attention shifted to country music, after the genre’s stories and melodies filled her home. She picked up a guitar at a mere nine years old, and hasn’t put it down since.

    She begged her parents to make the move to Music City where she could pursue her passion full-time, and made a bargain with her mother to make her dreams a reality: the family would move when Ali could perform 40 covers on her guitar, and was performing steadily. A year later, the songwriter had landed more than 30 gigs and played to crowds of thousands, including showcases at Douglas Corner Café, Belcourt Taps and the Bluebird Café. Drawing inspiration from some of country music’s leading ladies and songwriting seamstresses, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Kelsea Ballerini, Maddie and Tae and Kacey Musgraves.

    It was announced in 2016 that Ali has signed with Silverado Records. She is hard at work to build her catalogue and shine a light on her talent in Nashville. Driven by her authentic love for writing and making music, this passionate performer dreams of the day that she takes the stage to find her fans singing her own lyrics back to her. “I hope someday that my music can affect people the way music has always affected me,” said Ali. “I can’t imagine my life without it.”
