PEI country singer-songwriter Alli Walker has released her debut album, The Basement Sessions: What I’ve Learned So Far. To celebrate the release of her first collection of anthems, Alli has also dropped Love Yourself and Little Things— two bonus tracks, one about being grateful for the small things in life and one about unconditional self-acceptance.
“The Basement Sessions: What I’ve Learned So Far is truly my journey of on-going personal development over what has been a transformative past few years,” said Alli. “The album touches on everything from mental health issues and perfectionism to rising past adversity, loving yourself and accepting your unique truth. Every song speaks to the lessons I’ve learned and my hope of empowering listeners to dive deeper into themselves and to be mindful of the power of their own thoughts.”
Building on the release of her first album, Alli is hoping to open the discussion around the messages of mental health she shares in her music. This summer, she’s already joined the panel of speakers at Monday Girl’s Women in Media event and was a speaker and performer at GIRL TALK Empowerment Day.
Alli moved from PEI to Toronto when she was 19 years old. Now with hundreds of shows played and songs written, she says that she is proud to finally release her debut album. Walker calls her style of music “Mindful Music” and “Conscious Country”—authentic and vulnerable storytelling based on mental health issues, empowering messages, life’s hard lessons, and the tough questions we ask ourselves, delivered with the roots of old and new country.
