Alli Walker releases new single “Raise Your Head”

Last week, PEI-born country singer/songwriter Alli Walker released a new music video for her latest single “Raise Your Head.” This release comes hot off Walker’s debut festival performance at Atlantic Canada’s largest outdoor country music festival, Cavendish Beach Music Festival.

Through the lyrics, Walker shares a powerful tale of overcoming adversity and accepting the challenges in her life, allowing her to finally celebrate her unique self. An anthem of maintaining her truth, beliefs and pride, “Raise Your Head” is an intimate story of Walker’s ability to rebuild a stronger version of herself, one she can be proud of.
About the song and video, Alli explains:
“Returning to my old High School in PEI to film the video for “Raise Your Head” was really cathartic for me for many reasons. This is where I sang my first note, as the lead female role in my grade 12 musical Footloose. Being given that opportunity and chance as someone with no experience changed the entire trajectory of my life, and for that I am so grateful. High school was also a tough time for me with friends and bullying, so to be able to go back as a different person with a new perspective was powerful for me. It goes perfectly with the first line of the song ‘Everybody says that I’ve changed, well thank God.’”

“Raise Your Head” is Walker’s third song added to her collection after her debut single “Fight Till The End” was released earlier this year, followed by “Sunny Day” during Mental Health Awareness Week (May). The tracks will be part of her full album, “The Basement Sessions: What I’ve Learned So Far” launching September 13.
