Ally's recently released original jazz album, Interblaze, features 3x-Grammy winning saxophonist Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones), Grammy winning keyboardist Glenn Patscha (Bonnie Raitt), Kurdish guitarist Shvan Kaban, and many top-tier Nova Scotian musicians. Thoughts of Home, an original composition from her latest album, was nominated for the 2022 Marvin Hamlisch International Music Awards in the jazz category.
