Ali Harper is someone I met for the first time earlier this year. I told her I wanted to podcast her – because I knew her work. I had heard some of her albums, seen her on the TV and stage and knew that she’d have a good story to tell.
She told me to wait until the middle of the year when she’d be in Wellington performing the show, Songs For Nobodies.
We caught up earlier this week, just ahead of the season’s premier. The show is touring New Zealand – and from there to America!
So Ali previews the show – check out her website for more details as well as the link above to the season at Circa.
We talk about her quarter-century career as a performer – from appearing in the chorus of a touring musical to being on Dancing With Stars as one of the singers, to releasing her own CDs and shows.
It was my great pleasure talking to Harper – her passion and enthusiasm is there right throughout this conversation. I hope you enjoy listening to it.
