With intimate lyrics, unyielding vocals, and seasoned instrumental chops, Ally Lubera’s music is just as captivating in a living room concert as it is in an NHL arena. As a twenty-year-old Americana artist, Lubera has jumped into the world of music with both feet as a student, creator, entertainer and educator.
Ally cut her teeth in the Chicago blues scene, where she joined her first band, Trance, at the age of 12. As preteens, Trance made appearances on WGN-TV Chicago, the Chicago Blues Festival, and the House of Blues. Additionally, they became the youngest band to ever win the Illinois Battle of the Bands State Championships.
Since then, Ally has toured extensively around the United States, playing everywhere from Disneyland's Fantasyland Theatre to Pittsburgh’s PPG Paints Arena. In 2017, Ally and four other artists were selected to join forces as an opening band for Bon Jovi’s This House Is Not For Sale Tour.
With an ever-growing resume, Ally has worked collaboratively with GRAMMY and Academy Award-winning writer, Luis Resto (Eminem, "Lose Yourself"), and received mentorship from high-profile artists such as GRAMMY-winner Chris Eldridge (The Punch Brothers), Aoife O'Donovan (I’m With Her, Crooked Still), Julian Lage and Carmen Bradford (Count Basie Orchestra). As a songwriter, she has received accolades from the National YoungArts Foundation and The GRAMMY Foundation.
As a graduate of Michigan’s Interlochen Arts Academy, and a current music student at Nashville’s Belmont University, Ally is passionate about paying it forward through music education. She is currently working with Nashville-based nonprofit, Carpenter’s Square, to develop music programs in underserved urban areas. Additionally, Ally works as a staff member for Interlochen’s summer songwriting program.
Currently residing in Nashville, Ally performs as a solo artist, as well as with her folk trio, Erabellas, and the Belmont University Bluegrass Ensemble. She’s played some of Nashville’s top venues, such as the Bluebird Café, the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Ally holds a weekly residency at the Hampton Social, and is currently recording her first studio project. Her debut EP is set for release in fall of 2020.
