Ali Jackson is a 17 year old singer-songwriter from Lake Bluff, Illinois. Her stirring vocals and arpeggio style of guitar playing convey the honesty of emotion found in her music, from pop, rock, folk, and blues.  In her own compositions, Ali draws on life experiences, whether they are fond memories of her childhood home in Texas, or the challenges of opening oneself up to trust in a relationship.  For Ali, life is a "work in progress", and song writing is her way of capturing life's unique moments.  Ali is a member of the MYA ensemble "VX", a studio recording group lead by Emmy-winning Composer and Music Producer, Gary Fry. She has performed at the Village Tavern in Long Grove, Bennett Gordon Hall at Ravinia, Uncommon Ground in Chicago, Elawa Farm, The John and Nancy Hughes Theater at the Gorton Center in Lake Forest, IL and in the 2017 Lake Forest Days Parade to name a few. She gives a lot of her time to performing for, and entertaining the residents at various retirement homes. Check her out at!
