Alli is #Flyah

Alli was born in Laurel, Maryland in 1996.  She started singing at the age of three and was writing short stories at the age of five.  Soon thereafter, she began writing poetry.  Through her creativity, she developed a passion for writing songs, and she would practice daily to memorize her songs so that she could perform in front of her family.
As the years went by, Alli's mother saw her daugher's natural talent develop as well as her dedication to her craft.  At the age of 10, Alli's mother decided to test her gift and expand her musical talent by getting her a keyboard.  Alli taught herself to play, as it gave her another channel to develop her music writing skills.  Her first song written on the keyboard was called "Too Late".  Her main influences at this age were Amy Lee of Evanescence, Alicia Keys, and Pink.  Alli says that lyrics have always been her most creative expression because words can always depict emotion to the listener, despite the music involved with it.
To challenge her limits even further, Alli received her first guitar when she turned 13.  Alli was fearless as she taught herself to play another instrument.  Alli experienced heartache and pain during this time, due to her parent's divorce.  She found it hard to explain how she was feeling in normal conversation, but it was always so easy to write a song that expressed her emotions.  Even though her vocal and musical talents became her "coping mechanism", she was determined to stay focused and devoted to her craft.
Alli met her producer, D'Aceman Johnson, when she was 14, and he immediately recognized her talent and potential to be a successful music artist.  Since then, they have worked relentlessly in the studio to start making her dream of being a singer, a realtiy.  With the help and mentoring of D'Aceman Johnson, Alli has continued to develop her talents.  In addition, she has done three years of School Open Mic Performances, she had a supporting role in a school play titled, "The Man Who Came to Dinner", participated in School Talent Shows, and performed at various receptions and social events.
Alli's sound is a fusion of Pop, R & B, Hip-Hop, and Jazz.  Her sound is found to be captivating to her listeners.  Her creative concept to her music is more than just an emotional outlet, but a means for her to showcase her passion for music.  Her dream is to move people through song and to develop a fan base that will connect with her music.  Alli says she has been blessed with the gift of music, but it is not her own.  It is to be shared with all who will listen, and maybe, she will be able to help someone or save a life, like music has saved hers.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
