Ali Fontaine is an Anishinaabe singer/songwriter from Sagkeeng First Nation, Manitoba, Canada. Before young Ali Fontaine finished her senior high school year, she had already produced a debut full length self-titled album of award winning, top charted original hit songs. Ali’s debut self-titled album is “one solid record that displays a maturity that belies her 17 years. Her voice and songwriting come off as effortless, showing a poise that will have veteran performers envious and audiences swooning” (Manitoba SCENE). It was no surprise that Ali received 'Most Outstanding Manitoban', 'Best New Artist' and 'Best Country CD' at the 2011 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards. Her initial success served as no distraction to her musical drive as young Ali released an anticipated second album titled “Diamond in the Rough”, June 2012 earning her the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Award for 'Female Entertainer of the Year' and Native American Music Award for 'Best Country Album' in 2013. Ali is currently working on her third album set to be released in 2016. Her new single 'Free' that was released July 2015 is now available for purchase on iTunes and Google Play.
