Carry Me Home by singer, songwriter Ali Matthews

July 29, 2012 at 1:13 am 3 comments

I met Ali Matthews at a Write! Canada conference some years ago. She provided our musical entertainment  and also gave a workshop on songwriting. From her first song, I was taken by her pleasing voice and thoughtful and eloquent lyrics. Since then she has gone on to success after success and new albums. I have several of her CDs and enjoy hearing her voice and her messages whenever I hear her sing.


Myhusband and I had occasion to attend a dinner and concert at her home last year. We received a warm welcome and ate well. Her husband John managed the grill for delicious barbecued food.  For the concert, her musicians— with Rick Francis  on guitar and Charlene Nafziger at the keyboard—backed up certain songs, and others Ali played by herself with her own guitar.


I have come to know Ali better and appreciate her as a fellow Christian, writer, as well as musician.
