i recently sat down with Chedo of The Come Up Show podcast to talk Nightshade, the divine feminine, my lowest point on my musical journey thus far and so much more.
visited cbc to perform a few songs off of nightshade a couple weeks ago with my brother 2nd son.
NIGHTSHADE, my debut album is out now! Featured by Spotify today under new releases. Download or stream on all platforms.
The Toronto-based a l l i e has been touted as one to watch for a few years now, and Nightshade further validates the designation.
For a l l i e, music has always been a healing mechanism and a means to locating and uncovering her “deeper self,” she says over coffee in Kensington Market. That artistic approach permeates the rising Toronto R&B artist’s stunning debut album, Nightshade, out Friday (July 21).
Was a pleasure to appear on CBC Q and perform some songs from Nightshade.

CBC Music listed "Move Like a Mystic" as a song you need to hear this week. I agree! :)
This past Monday I had the pleasure of playing with some rad ass dudes for my gig at Yonge and Dundas Square. 2nd Son, The Kount, and Rennie B. Williams aka the dream team-- we had minimal practice time and they killed it! It was so satisfying to do an hour long set (a first for me) and reinterpret the songs in a way that brought out all my jazzy roots that I haven't connected with in a while. The forecast was calling for rain but the sun gods came through to bless the stage and the crowd. When it ended I felt like we could have kept on for another hour. The vibe was so right. Now, back to finishing my album 💜

a l l i e - "Move Like a Mystic" prod. (2nd Son & The Kount)
"This song came to me quick and easy, rose up in one fluid motion. Not all songs arrive that way. When it happens though, it's a blessing. That's when I'm doing my job of being an open channel and catching a flow. The message is simple: live deeply, break the chains, move freely. Move how you move when no ones watching. Move the way love makes you move. Move like a mystic ✨"
