BlogHer

Welcome, BlogHer11 Friends!

I hope you enjoy this special compilation of songs I put together just for you. My tunes run the gamut from sweet & soft to aggressive rocker chick, but one thing is true of them all: I played every single guitar you hear on every recording, and I wrote (or co-wrote) the music & lyrics.

Titles are listed below, along with short descriptions of the songs. If you like, you can preview and download individual tunes below, OR you can…

Download the Whole BlogHer11 Compilation HERE.

Feel free to explore the rest of my website, and be sure to check out both my House Concert page and Indy the Cat’s page!

For more inside info & details about my random adventures in show biz (like when I assisted my husband in a private magic show for Johnny Depp!!), please Subscribe to my Newsletter, er, uh…I mean BLOG!

I would LOVE for you to mention my music in YOUR blog, so, if after hearing my tunes, you’d like to blog about me/my music/my cat, please let me know (email ali AT alihandal.com) and I’ll send you a complimentary download link to my most recent album Make Your Move.

Thanks so much for listening and for supporting independent music!
