Ali Comerford Electronic Press Kit (EPK)

Ali is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Kilkenny Ireland.

Ali is a classically trained violinist, violist and songwriter from Kilkenny, Ireland. Having spent 12 years abroad studying music in both London and New York, she then traveled the world as a freelance musician playing some of the biggest venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, London’s Royal Albert Hall and Dublin’s National Concert Hall. In 2020 she returned home to Kilkenny to focus on songwriting and released her debut album Knots in 2021 to critical acclaim. Her debut single He Knows was placed on the RTE Recommends list while her album has received continuous airplay on radio across Ireland and the UK including RTE 1 and BBC Ulster. Ali continues to release new music with Cool Girl being featured as a Hotpress track of the day.

Comerford takes it all in her stride, presenting thoughtful folk/pop with nimble-fingered touches and serene confidence.
Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times
Having listened to Knots over and over again, what struck me most was how Comerford managed to create an album that is rich and rewarding for the listener from start to finish.

The songs are fantastically intimate – there are times when Ali seems to be whispering the lyrics right into the ear of the listener with the effect that they seem to be being performed for you alone.
