Ally Cribb – Bigger

Toronto-based singer and songwriter Ally Cribb comes from a musical family. Her father Robert Cribb is a musician and writer as well. No surprise, then, that Ally chose the same career path. Citing Taylor Swift and Joni Mitchell as her heroes, she started taking singing lessons at the age of eight. Now only 16 years old, she steps into the spotlights.

Her first ever single, released earlier this year, was a heartfelt cover of Radiohead’s Creep. Impressive, but I think her first original release, Bigger, is even more extraordinary. Especially since she wrote the song herself at such a young age. Sonically, her first two tracks couldn’t be further apart. Her version of Creep was a stripped back, piano-only affair, while Bigger sounds, well, ‘bigger’.

Speaking on the track, Ally Cribb explains: “Bigger is about breaking through the obstacles that convince us to accept less than what we are. I’ve come to understand failure as a source of strength instead of something I should be scared of. I wrote this thinking about the many things I want to accomplish in my life, and the feeling I get when I close my eyes and picture myself standing on a big stage, staring out into a sea of faces. That’s my dream. And however challenging it might be getting there, this song is my own reminder that perseverance and dedication are stronger than the fear of failure.

Bigger was produced by Ally’s father and will be part of her forthcoming EP Unbroken.
