Ali Milner is making her mark on the indie/jazz charts delivering pure sound and amazing vocal depth, with a modern edge for a classic genre that has been described as shades of Sam Cooke and Norah Jones rolled into one. Despite her young age, she is an experienced artist who has been recording and performing live since the age of 14. For her latest album, “I Dare You,” Ali collaborated with some of Canada’s best, including Sherry St. Germain, Davor Vulama, Aileen De La Cruz, Shaun Verreault (lead singer, Wide Mouth Mason) and Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams’ writing partner).
“Strong visuals and a confident versatility makes Milner stand out among the many women performers around here. Milner has a nice light touch that simply dances over a latin-flavoured pop song such as ‘Break Away’, which could have been a hit for The Drifters back in the early ’60s, can be playfully coy in ‘Don’t Forget to Call Me’, visits Motown with ‘Gonna Dance’ and touches on reggae with ‘I Wanna Be Loved By You’. Opening song ‘Crystal Clear’ has maturity and rings with an authority that suggests it could be an instant classic. With discreet use of strings and brass, ‘I Dare You’, is full and fully-formed. Watch her.” – Vancouver Province
