Happy New Year!
I hope you love my new website because I am so excited to start sharing even more with you all! There are many exciting things to look forward to in this new year. On February 4th, I will be performing at Carnegie Hall as part of Lead Belly Fest. The lineup includes Buddy Guy, Eric Burdon, Edgar Winter, Tom Paley, Walter Trout, Dana Fuchs, and others. I am so beyond grateful for this opportunity and I hope to see some of you at the show!
This past November, I traveled to the UK to work on a very exciting project with a couple writers and producers. I am currently writing songs for a debut pop EP that will be released this year. It's long overdue and I know many of you have been waiting patiently for new music, but I promise you it's time well spent and worth the wait. Over the past few years, between touring and performing, I have been experimenting with different styles and genres, on a constant search for Ali Isabella's next move. Little did I know, however, what I was searching for was right in front of me the whole time; my roots! I have finally found myself in the music that I grew up listening to - Madonna, Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, and early Britney Spears (albums: 1999, 2000, 2001) and Mariah Carey. It's essentially a style that combines 80s influences with a hint of R&B and pop sounds similar to that of early Britney. The songs I've been writing are centered on the struggles associated with leaving teen years behind and entering young adulthood. My goal with this EP is to create an overall sound where each and every one of you are able to fully feel every emotion, tug-and-pull heartache and high. After all, music should be about evoking emotion and making you truly feel something. What purpose does it serve if it doesn't?
Stay tuned for more exciting updates. I'll be posting some more announcements later this month.
Until then, have a wonderful start to your 2016!
