Album Notes
"Local songbird Marcus has that sweet, pure vocal style practically invented for alternative country." - Seattle Weekly

"Ali Marcus might be country in some of the beats and styles but she's clearly in the progressive folk camp when it comes to singing about politics and her more personal opinions...There is something very fresh about all this." - Victory Music Review

Turtle Rock Records is proud to announce the release of Ali Marcus’ 7th album, “Americana Hotel.” This new collection of songs represents a huge step forward in Ali’s writing and recording style. It showcases a belief in the power of our stories - the remarkable way in which individual experiences can actually be quite universal despite the specificity of the tale. The tracks include "The Ballad of Helen and Bernie," the true story of Ali’s grandparents' elopement during the Great Depression, "Of Homes and Loved Ones," a meditation on the reason WHY?, and "California," an imaginary tale of a journey across America looking for the great unknown. Also in there is "American Soil," a topical song inspired by the Tea Party but generally addressing the popular sentiment and guilt in American politics, "Alcatraz," a love song from the eyes of an inmate, "Talkin' Nashville Tornado Blues," a mixture of music industry and weather-related antagonism, and "I Haven't Heard a Song," about the death of a loved one.
