NOMINATED FOR RISING STAR AT THE CMAO AWARDS
FEATURED SINGER ON KANSAS STONE'S 'TOGETHER WE'RE STRONG' BENEFITING UNISON
Alli Walker, named Top Country’s ‘Top Female Artists of 2019’, and nominated for Rising Star at the 2020 Country Music Association of Ontario Awards, is a Prince Edward Island raised singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who moved to Toronto when she was 19 to ‘chase the dream’. With hundreds of shows played and songs written, she is proud to have released her Top 10 iTunes charting debut album in September of 2019 called ‘The Basement Sessions: What I’ve Learned So Far’. “The Basement Sessions is an album the music industry needs right now.” - Exclaim!
Walker is quickly garnering the attention of the country music industry with her unique style of music she coins 'Mindful Music' and 'Conscious Country' - authentic and vulnerable storytelling based on mental health subjects, empowering messages, life’s hard lessons, and the tough questions we ask ourselves. “She has a focus on the authenticity and vulnerability that country music allows for, and that we love.” - Country Music Association of Ontario (Artist of the Month)
Her album was anchored by her power anthem and debut release ‘Fight Till The End’, a reminder to be proud of how far you’ve come, and to never give up, with an exclusive music video premier on Top Country. “Alli is able to be true to herself as an artist and human being. Her passion for this style of music is clear and a welcomed change in the country music landscape”.
The music video for Alli Walker’s second hit ‘Sunny Day’ which released during Mental Health Awareness Month, paints a picture on how people cope with their anxiety and Mental Health in different ways, premiering exclusively on Notable Life, where she was declared “the ultimate girl next door … paired with a certain candid vulnerability that seems to be a modern rarity.”
‘Raise Your Head’ is the third track added to Alli Walker’s collection, sharing a powerful tale of overcoming adversity and accepting the challenges in life to live her best life possible. The music video was released through SiriusXM after filming it in her hometown high school, during the same time of her festival performance debut at Atlantic Canada’s largest festival Cavendish Beach Music Festival in Prince Edward Island in July of 2019.
One of the two bonus tracks, “Love Yourself,” is an honest and personal tale of Walker’s journey to find inner peace and contentment, and a call for listeners to accept and love their unique selves. “Most of the time we can be our own worst critic,” said Walker. “We would never speak to our loved ones with the same harsh words we speak to ourselves. ‘Love Yourself’ is about my own personal journey to accept who I see in the mirror, without any judgement of my own reflection.”
After releasing 8 singles off the record and 5 music videos, Alli rounded off the album with two powerful bonus tracks ‘Love Yourself’ and ‘Little Things’ about being grateful for the small things in life. She also released a Christmas song called ‘Our Christmas’ which quickly became her most streamed song to date, landing on popular Spotify editorial playlists.
