Ali Gray

Ali Gray is a singer/songwriter in Minneapolis. in 2005 she released her first solo record, Let You In, which received accolades and attention from local music critics.

In 2009, Gray released her sophomore project, Johnson Street. The envelope she dared to push on Johnson Street is one of real substance and, indeed, her sophomore release firmly established Gray as a songwriter.

In 2015, she released a Christmas album, Christmas with You, which is packed with all of her favorite Christmas tunes, including an original, "Christmas With You".

If it’s true the root of the word courage (cor) is Latin for “heart,” and that – in its initial form – it meant to speak by sharing everything in one’s heart, then Ali Gray’s newest release, Love Letters, released in fall of 2018, is a triumph of courage. This fourth solo album was spurred by the abrupt death of a troubled, close friend – and all the attendant regrets one can have about not having done more to help. “That was the impetus,” says Gray. “I then ended up going to a cabin alone and wrote song after song to people I care about – lyrical letters about things I want to say to each before it’s too late.”

Gray has brought honest, vulnerable lyrics and music together with her refined, gentle, and yet powerful, vocals for over 20 years. Outside of writing and performing her original music, you can find her in multiple Twin Cities cover bands: Two Hicks and a Chick, Mish Mash, Drunch, Martin Zellar’s Neil Diamond Tribute, Kenny and Ali, Ali and Joe, and whenever any of her musician buds invite her to sing along side them.
