Biography:

Ali Henry is a formally trained jazz vocalist who challenges the traditional and timeless Jazz, Blues and Bossa Nova standards.  Combined with her original material, Ali aims to create a fusion of melodic creativity with a chic, classy and progressive sound. Her exposed vulnerability and oneness with the music enables the building blocks of a song to form into a fresh new expression, and emotional translation to her audience.

Initially working in Kelowna, British Columbia with pianist Neville Bowman, and legendary double bass player Bernie Addington, Ali recorded an album entitled “On My Mind” in September 2011 (available on iTunes). Currently, Ali is working with Latin flavored guitarist Eric Tompkins of Prince George, British Columbia.  As a powerful duo, Eric and Ali plan to further expand and generate their distinctive sound to Northern British Columbia. Ali will also be working with well renowned touring manager Marty Kramer in 2013, taking her new single “My Love,” hot off the press.

With the intention of continually moving forward, Ali intends to begin to tour Western Canada, and has goals to reach Shanghai, China.  As she harbors an inability of being placed in any box, Ali will continue to color outside of the lines and strive to make dreams into
