Ali Sperry is a multi-faceted performer who sings of the human quest for connection and hunger for growth. This Iowa-raised singer-songwriter has spent the past seven years writing, performing, and collaborating within the rich music community of Nashville. Both as a solo act and with her band, The Family Vacation, Ali has shared shows with Langhorne Slim, Amanda Shires, Andrew Combs, Elephant Revival, Mipso, Erin Rae & the Meanwhiles, and many others.

Popdose is now pleased to offer you this exclusive video premiere of “Cruel Expectations”.  Definitely not what one would expect from someone based in Music City, this song and video both look back with a definitive mid-’60’s pop sensibility, with its semi-Phil Spector-style undertones, both aurally and with the “girl-group” image presented in the video.

Her latest album, Crooked Feelings, will be released on Friday, February 24, 2017.
