Alison Turner, better known as Ali T, is an indie-pop singer-songwriter and producer based in Vermont. Once described as “a less-neurotic Alanis Morissette”, the songstress performs original favorites and puts her own spin on popular tunes. Having started writing songs at the age of seven, and picking up the guitar when she was 11, Ali has developed into an introspective songwriter and versatile performer. Vermont’s Seven Days named Ali T the winner for Best Pop Artist in 2023. She has also been a finalist for Best Vocalist and Best Pop Artist 2018-2023. In 2022, Ali was a nominee in the New England Music Awards for “Rising Star - Vermont”.
Ali grew up on a farm in Royalton, Vermont and graduated cum laude from Wagner College on Staten Island. She majored in Arts Administration and minored in both film & media studies and psychology. Ali typically performs 150+ shows per year. She used her pandemic time to write and create - producing a music video for a new single, “Down (Wonderland)” (2020), a tune she wrote and produced over a span of three days. Two more singles followed - "Monsters & Demons” (2021) and her first holiday tune, "Snowed In” (2021). Songs have been featured on radio stations across the region, including Vermont's 'The Point', 'VPR', and Boston's 'The River'.
Ali has released three albums - “Smoke & Mirrors” (2019) with help from Grammy-winning sound engineer and her former guitar teacher, Ed Eastridge, “The Makeover” (2021), which is a remastered and reworked collection of original songs from her past, and her latest release - the entirely self-produced, “Pancakes At Midnight” (2023). Her music is available on all streaming platforms.
