Edmonton based country musician Alee stopped by 620 CKRM recently to talk about her brand new song and about staying true to her Ukrainian heritage as she progresses her music career.
“My Grandpa, who (the song) “Moonshine” is about, had a kubasa recipe and my Uncle has kind of taken it over and won King Kubasa,” chuckled Alee.
While she admits to trying to find good perogies in Nashville, she is working hard on a new project. She says she’s been having a lot of fun working on the new, unnamed album with several different songwriters, sounds, and musicians. The first single is called “Don’t Make Me Miss You.”
“Had this idea to write a song about moving on from someone and being able to do things on your own and do things you love, be confident in who you are,” explained Alee.
Did she have a personal situation that inspired this new song?
“What’s funny about this one is that I, when writing it, didn’t have a certain situation but, sure enough, you live through the song and see how it grows and come back to it a couple months after going through the writing process and see how so many different pictures and parts of the song were probably relatable to me without knowing it.”
She wrote this latest single in Nashville with two Canadian fellas, Travis Wood and Gavin Slate. She expects to have the new material out by early January.
