A note from Allie Sealey regarding her journey to her first EP album:
"When my grandpa asked me to call Hospice, we made sure this was the best decision for him and I knew he was truly ready. When the Hospice nurse came into our house, she asked my grandpa who his favorite singer was. He looked right up at me and said, “Well, you’re looking at her.” I thought the next weeks were the hardest part of my life leading up to his final day with me. That night I asked him if he wanted me to play for him and he reached to the remote and turned off the television. I played him what was to be the last three songs I would play for him in our home and they were, “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra, “Because You Loved Me” by Celine Dion, and “Stars” by Grace Potter. The last thing that went through my mind was, “Who am I going to play for now?”
We continue to walk with purpose as we write, record, and perform original music. It is with each other we get to continue to make this music journey so bright.
