Raised in Shepherds Bush by Grenada-born parents — a reggae-calypso bassist father, and a couture seamstress mother — ALA.NI emerged last year on Later…With Jools Holland, which came amidst the arrival of her 4-strong EP cycle Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, charting the seasons of a failed relationship (accruing over 2.5 million streams since). Formerly a backing singer for the likes of Andrea Bocelli, Mary J Blige and Damon Albarn, ALA.NI has began carving out her own artistic journey. There is a lot a joy to be found in ALA.NI’s expressive sound and her debut album is due Summer 2016.
