That gutsy attitude is sewn throughout Aly's debut album, Things Worth Keeping.

Spacious and melodic, salty and moving, Aly Tadros alternative folk stylings tempts each listener out of the vacuum-sealed sterility of every day life. Her classical guitar writhes on the floor of the mind, haunted by the honesty of her lyrics . Her influences range from the off-kilter Tom Waits, to the commanding Ani DiFranco, to the captivating Fiona Apple, leaving the listener to feel seduced, loved, left and wizened. In addition to her influences, Aly is frequently compared with the likes of Rachael Yamagata and Jolie Holland.
