Get knocked down enough, and one of two things will happen: you'll either get stronger, or end up with full on concussion. For me, the making of Hungry Ghost was a little bit of both.

story originally written for Ladygunn. read the full story here.   Ever want something you thought you’d never have? I have, more times than I can count. In April of last year I was opening for Louise Goffin at the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, New Jersey.  I’ve played some nice rooms over the […]

There’s a joke in the music business that goes something like this: Q: How do you make 1 million dollars in music? A: Start with 2 million. I hate that joke. Early on in my career, it was easy to avoid talking about money, because money was so seldom involved. I played for drink tickets, […]

For the first time in six months, I felt at ease I was alone on my mother’s balcony. It was 72 degrees, a bright April afternoon in South Texas. The yard below me full and lush, with orange and purple bougambias roped around the columns that led up to her bedroom window. I’d just finished […]

I lost my job.   It was ideal. My highest paying babysitting job ever – $25/hr – all to look after a 4 year-old girl twenty minutes from my apartment. I’d even managed to convince her parents to delay my start date so I could finish my artist-in-residence in LA.   Basically, I got cocky. […]

The ride to releasing my new record was not a smooth one. A bumpy jaunt across a desert on a narcoleptic donkey would be more accurate. Nonetheless, we made it. I recorded the album with Kevin Salem, a wonderful guitarist and producer, and now, a good friend. The truth is, Kevin wasn’t my first choice. He wasn’t even my second.

For perhaps the first time in her eight year career, singer/songwriter Aly Tadros felt ready to drop all pretense and the temptation to hide behind irony, wearing her heart fully on her sleeve for each of the 13 tracks that make up Hungry Ghost.

This Wednesday night I’ll take the stage at Joe's Pub at The Public with my six wonderful bandmates. We’re celebrating the release of my third record, but it means so much more to me. It’s one more chance for me to do something that scares me.

Just returned to Laredo after a week at the Kerrville Folk Festival 2016. Out of this years New Folk finalists, I was not one of the six winners. I DID get to perform for an incredibly gracious audience, break in my rain boots (AKA Kerrmageddon), and connect with an incredibly kind and talented group of […]

My best friend is the most disciplined person I know. He sits down early in the morning to work on his programming, and gets up once or twice throughout the day to eat, go to the bathroom, or call a friend. Otherwise he works. He has a freakishly-long attention span. I love and admire him […]

Everything is an emergency. First thing in the morning, this is what goes through my monkey brain. Must. check. email. Facebook. OKCupid. Visibility of abs. A lot of *big* decisions need to be made. PR  company, photoshoots, music video direction, release tour dates. The thought of taking each one on is completely overwhelming to me […]

What’s next? I’m sitting in my parents backyard in Laredo, Texas. Just a few days ago we topped 15K in the Pledge Music Campaign  (!!!!). I have a lot to do. Photoshoots, graphic design, printing, tour planning, rehearsing. With all the logistics on my plate, it’d be very – VERY easy to let art making fall […]

We finished tracking the last song in Woodstock tonight, just as the Pledge Music Campaign slid into 99%. Over $15,100 raised by 245 amazing people, and we’re still not finished. A few months ago this all just felt like a pipe dream. Now it’s real, masters in hand. Thank you. Sincerely. Time to put out […]

I really, really needed to be in bed an hour ago. I've been promising to make a *BIG* announcement for weeks, and now seems like a damn good time to do it.

I brushed off getting sober for a long time because I didn't look like my idea of the "typical" alcoholic. Other people's stories helped me to identify I had a problem, get past my shame and get help. So I'm sharing mine now.
