Nashville based singer/songwriter Ali Sperry has released “Hope,” the latest from her LP
In Front Of Us, out today.

 

Sperry, a yogi who grew up in a small Iowa community built around the practice of Transcendental Meditation, moved to Nashville in 2009. Since then, she has become a beloved member of the Nashville creative community, frequently sought after for collaborations and co writes due to her songwriting prowess. She has shared stages with the likes of Nicki Bluhm, Langhorne Slim, Andrew Combs, Mipso, Kelsey Waldon, Erin Rae, and more.

Ali Sperry

In 2020, when faced with a year of trauma, racial reckoning, and downright worldwide existential
crisis, Sperry did what she has always done–turned inward and wrote songs that channeled,
mirrored, and ultimately distilled those cultural currents into what became In Front Of Us.
The album was made in the thick of the pandemic and was produced by her husband,
Jamie Dick. The restrictions of life compelled the couple to set up a home studio and create a safe place to make the record, remotely collaborating with friends like
Allison Russell, Kyshona, Jill Andrews, Natalie Schlabs, Sadler Vaden, Jill Andrews, and more

Park City Song Summit

Park City, UT

September 8-12, 2021

https://parkcitysongsummit.com/

The Song Summit is the brainchild of Ben Anderson, Park City resident and lifetime musician/founding member of the jamband Aiko. He started the Song Summit to celebrate his passion for music and his personal mission to bring clarity and normalcy to the struggles musicians, artists and music lovers alike face around mental health and dependency. Song Summit is proud to partner with three local charities who are in the trenches every day addressing mental health, suicide prevention and addiction recovery: Communities that Care, Jewish Family Service and Summit Clubhouse.

The Song Summit is a decidedly sideways move away from mass music festivals and the dilution of intimate connections where scale numbs engagement between artists and fans. It seeks to create a retreat for artists where they play their songs and create conversations with audiences around both proven and inspired practices for bolstering creativity and success in music and beyond. September 8-12 in Park City, Utah.
