Born and raised in the Lanark Highlands deep within the Ottawa Valley, this Canadian songstress got her start in music around the kitchen table at a very young age. Ali McCormick’s songs are a reflection of her rural upbringing; songs about dad selling the tractor, bears on bicycles and motorcycles that won’t start unless you roll them down a hill in gear. She steadily hones her talent by seeking out more and more places to play, dropping everything to feed her creative spirit and listening to the call of the open road. With one album under her belt and the second to be released this fall 2015 Ali is embarking on many new musical adventures but is always happy to support a good cause.
