Ally Cribb has been on this earth before. Her voice is heavy with a soul that defies her sixteen years. While her home city of Toronto, Canada has exposed her to a rich and diverse musical scene, for Ally, “What I do is all about creativity and imagination: two things that can be found and fostered anywhere.” She always understood music. It was a gift she inherited from her father who, too, is a musician and a writer. Through her own flair for creative expression and an instinct for conveying sentiments to sonics, when she started singing lessons at the age of eight, Ally never looked back. As a natural empath, Ally Cribb’s experiences have given her song-writing sensitivity and resonance. Just like her heroes Ella Fitzgerald and Joni Mitchell, what she sings demands to be felt. Her debut release, a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep”, sees the track transformed beyond recognition, swapping guitars for the gravitas of the piano, which brings the song newfound dimensions of vulnerability and strength. For Ally Cribb, this is only the beginning: “Music is the one thing I wanted to be really good at. I’ve been working harder than ever to advance my abilities to write and create.”

At its core, ‘Creep’ is really a song about fragility and vulnerability, and I wanted to communicate those delicate emotions with simple piano and exposed vocals.
