Ali has quite a distinctive sound, but some of her major vocal inspirations are Lana Del Rey and Amy Winehouse. "Not only are they amazing singer songwriters, but they aren't afraid to write about the darkest parts of their life," Ali expresses. She also often writes about the rough patches of her life through love and loss, and struggles. "I think its important to write about the deepest corners of my mind, because I know that people can relate and I could potentially help them through it." Ali believes that music saved her from her darkest moments. Her passion to help people, along with her positive demeanor and spirituality, also play a major role in her songwriting. Her passion originated from her father who was a musician of many instruments; all by ear. She often says that music runs in her blood. Her father passed away from cancer when she was 7 years old, and it was shortly after that she knew she would fulfill his legacy through performing.
