Ali Datko is a singer/songwriter who began writing lyrics as a young teenager. While growing up in the Carolinas, she was heavily influenced by classic country and folk music, as well as the humble, blue-collar culture it accompanied. As creative pursuits led her to expand her musical tastes, she discovered that she identified greatly with the ideals of punk music, embracing its ability to unify and bring about social change.
Today, Datko draws inspiration from storytelling lyricists such as Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers, Willie Nelson, Joe Strummer and Frank Turner.
She released her debut E.P. "Broken Machine" on August 6, 2013. It is available for free download at http://alidatko.com.
