WELCOME! I'm freshly back from a Northeastern excursion of playing shows, visiting family and friends and celebrating the wedding of two of my nearest and dearest. Feels good to be home and sitting on the porch with a latte on this sunny day. A HUGE thank you to everyone who came to the shows last week, who put me up, who spread the word, bought CDs or t-shirts and made the whole thing a great treat! I loved playing Ashland Coffee & Tea, Gypsy Sally's and World Cafe Life at the Queen.
And what a treat to come home to! My new video has been officially released and the good people at No Country for New Nashville so kindly premiered it and wrote this very sweet piece about it! Check it out HERE!
If you’re like us, you’re still feeling a slight musical hangover from the insanity of this weekend’s Americana Fest. Thankfully, this new video from Ali Sperry provides a unique take on the traditional Americana sound that’s been flooding our ears for the past few weeks. With tasteful pedal steel set alongside Sperry’s haunting vocals, “Always Been” is an earnest and intimate track that talks about the struggle of staying centered when life becomes unpredictable.
“The choice to be a musician as your livelihood is one of great vulnerability, as it is so deeply personal to all of us,” Sperry says. “There is an element of self-doubt that seems to come with the territory–I have watched people I love go through it as well as experiencing it first hand. “Always Been” is inspired by those doubts and learning how to be present and breathe our way through the dark times.”
Filmed by her step-brother, LA videographer and photographer Ben Estey, the video showcases Sperry in the rugged and desolate backdrop of Joshua Tree, California. Shots of a restless night spent in a lonely motel help to convey both the anxiety and hope that’s rooted within in each line of the track. ~Lorie Liebig, No Country for New Nashville
Coming up Next...Nashville show at City Winery on Oct 4th at 9pm! Come on out and hang, Nashville peeps! Very much looking forward to sharing this show with Christopher the Conquered, fellow Iowan and music-maker.
Have also started work on the next record and have the first track ready to roll out! Had an incredible time recording with friend and legendary musician and producer Joe Pisapia. Jamie, Joe, Doc and Lauren and I had a fabulous time in the studio cooking up this tune and I can't wait to share it with you guys!
