REVIEWS

“I can’t put into words what the experience was like for all of us watching Ali flower in the studio. Her pure, authentic voice and magnetic personality light up the room. She’s a natural — a true artist with old soul sensibility and a powerful message to share with the world. For me and for the musicians, it was one of the greatest experiences. You can hear the results in these first releases. I look forward to more!”
Jack Douglas, Producer

“Ali McManus is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most talented songwriters and most beautiful-voiced of singers that I’ve personally heard in the past decade.”
Exclusive Magazine, by Anne Carlini

Ali McManus delivers a strong debut album…If this album is any indication, the sky’s the limit for her career.”
Blinded by Sound, by General Jabbo. – Read Interview

Her debut album, Unbreakable, is an uplifting collection of songs about strength, perseverance and the human spiritAli’s exceptional musical talent has served as a healing source not only for herself but others.”

“Unbreakable is the very powerful and touching debut from Ali McManus…The quality of the performances and production goes hand in hand with the songwriting and is, simply, a stellar blend…’Wings’ is the real stunner for me; Southern soul-styled, with Hammond B3, a groove and rich.”
PopDose, by Rob Ross

“Plucky, positive and passionate about her craft, the indomitable Ali is ready to share her gifts with a global audience.”
AXS.com by Peter Roche

“The most salient element of these songs is that they’re all fully-formed; fully-realized and incredibly mature from someone who is just (really) beginning… For if Ali McManus can continue on this road, she has many fine records to make ahead of her.”
PopDose, by Rob Ross.

“You know through each word sung, each lyric poured out, that Ali’s heartfelt life story is coming forth.”
Exclusive Magazine, by Anne Carlini

Unbreakable would be an impressive debut for any musician. The fact that McManus overcame so much adversity to make it just makes it that much more impressive…. From the gorgeous ballad title track to the country-tinged “Rhythm That Rhymes,” McManus shows a confidence and musical skill that belays her years. She has a sweet, slightly raspy singing voice (think Stevie Nicks or Maria McKee) and a natural ear for a melody.”
Pop Entertainment by Jay S. Jacobs

““Unbreakable is a strong start to McManus’ career…It is a work that is certain to resonate with any adult contemporary audience, from radio programmers to listeners.”
Phil’s Picks

“Perhaps the best of the songs is the mid-tempo folk-rock strummer ‘Wings,’ which definitely is worthy of airplay on some good AAA or even alt-country channel. Following is the drop-dead-gorgeous piano ballad ‘Heart Shattered.”
