ZanaD:What type of music do you play?

Ally: Pop/Rock

ZanaD:What is the best advice you have for people who want to break into the music industry?

Ally: Don’t expect that any success will come easily. If you want it, work for it. Be prepared to face rejection, make changes and be patient because sometimes it takes a while. If you love it, if it’s what you’re most passionate about, go for it.

ZanaD:How old were you when you started performing?

A:Four years old!

ZanaD:How many years have you been writing music for?

A: Well, I started writing poetry when I was 10. And by the time I was in high school I started learning how to turn my poetry into music. So, I’ve been writing for quite a while!

ZanaD:Where would your dream place be to perform at?

Ally: I know a lot of solo artists would pick big venues, arenas, etc….but I’d really like to perform at my favorite club in Atlanta called The Masquerade.

ZanaD:What inspires you to write music?

Ally: Everything from love, to breakups, to disappointment. I’m inspired by a lot of things!

ZanaD: Whats the song you need to listen to when your feeling down?

ZanaD:Whats your favorite band?

Ally:It’s a tie between Queen, The Cars and Something Corporate.

ZanaD:Whats your favorite song?

Ally:Punk Rock Princess by Something Corporate.

ZanaD:Who is your hero?

Ally:Musically, my hero is Andrew McMahon(of Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin). He’s incredibly talented and such a fighter that he’s just very inspiring. In general, my hero is my Dad because he’s the strongest person I know.

ZanaD:If you could have three wishes come true what would they be and why?
