Alison Turner, better known as AliT, is a singer-songwriter (guitar/voice) based in Vermont. Once described as “a less-neurotic Alanis Morissette”, the songstress records and performs a heartfelt and unique style of alternative/indie pop. Having started writing songs at the age of seven, and picking up the guitar when she was 11, Ali has developed into an introspective songwriter and versatile performer. Vermont’s Seven Days named AliT a finalist for Best Vocalist and Best Pop Artist in 2018 and 2019.
Ali has released 2 albums, “Smoke & Mirrors” (2019) and “The Makeover” (2021), which is a remastered and reworked collection of songs from the past, including those from her first (improperly released) album, “Break”. Songs have been featured on radio stations across the region, including Vermont’s ‘The Point’ as well as Boston's 'The River'.
Ali typically performs 150+ shows per year. The pandemic threw a wrench in planned tours and local gigs. Ali used her time in quarantine to create - producing a music video for a new single, “Down (Wonderland)” and writing songs for her next album. Two more singles followed - "Monsters & Demons” (Oct. 2021) and her first holiday tune, "Snowed In” (Dec. 2021).
