Dr Ally K : We are in the studio now, working on‘ Get Connected’ which will be a full length album. Also I am planning on releasing a brand new song, called ‘Monster’ and proceeds will go to The charity, “shelter movers”. My closest friend was a victim of domestic violence and in her honor have written this song, Monster; an anthem for those suffering in domestic violence situations and my plea to them. Music can be a very powerful tool to assist others and stand up for people that are in pain. I used to write songs about my own pain, and now as I have matured I seek to be more of an ambassador for others pain and causes. There is a meaning in every song I write
