“Cross My Mind” is the first single from new artist, allie. It possesses a nostalgic quality reminiscent of old school R&B and Soul. Lust, desire, and indecision are interwoven in melodic unity, creating a sound that is quintessentially allie.
Join us in celebrating the release of the video for “Cross My Mind” as well as a live performance by allie.
