Ali McGuirk has made a career of captivating audiences with her powerful, buttery voice and heartfelt songwriting. Her earliest years as a performer were spent earning residencies across 4 continents, from Santorini to Hong Kong.
In 2016, she was recognized by the Boston Globe as an “artist to hear,” along with Lake Street Dive, Haim and other notable names. Shortly thereafter, she released her debut, self-titled EP and has been riding that momentum ever since. In November 2017, she released her first full-length album, “Slow Burn,” which saw her working with an eclectic mix of artists, including Boston guitar legend Jeffrey Lockhart (Lettuce, D’angelo, Lalah Hathaway), Brandon Mayes (Kendrick Lamar, Soulja Boy), DeShawn D’Vibes Alexander (Marcus King, Eric Krasno) and Cilla Bonnie (Air Traffic Controller). “Slow Burn” was named on multiple year-end lists, including Boston rock critic Steve Morse’s Top Ten Albums of 2017, and contributed to Ali’s current total of 7 Boston Music Award nominations and her 2018 New England Music Award nomination for R&B Act of the Year.
Ahead of new album Til It’s Gone (out September 16th on Signature Sounds), singer-songwriter Ali McGuirk has shared “All Back,” a track that highlights her signature soulful sound. On the bluesy, nostalgic song, McGuirk channels a touch of Amy Winehouse with the natural rasp in her vocals. “All Back” feels like it could exist somewhere outside of space and time — it could be on a record in the background of a party in a 1970s bungalow, or it could be on your Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify. Either way, it’s a great listen. — M.S.
