Inner Ally is a unique band that hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Their music brings you back to the vocal driven guitar rock of the 1970’s and 1980’s featuring great rhythms and strong multi-part harmonies. Using primarily cover songs as well as their originals, the band aims to choose specific songs with specific lyrics to weave into every performance a message of hope which our world desperately needs to hear. As a lyric from one of Inner Ally’s songs “Stand By You” says, “Look around you and you’ll see. It’s not as bad as you imagine it to be”.
The band released its debut E.P. entitled “E.P. ONE” in April of 2017. This first EP features three original songs: “The Key”, a warm and different telling of the Easter Story, “Kathy’s Song ’17”, a song that was originally released by Frank Patek as a solo song, as well as “Stand By You”, which was an Akademia Award Winner for Best Rock Song for February 2016 (also from his unreleased solo project).
One year later, the band released it’s 2nd E.P. entitled EP 2. The three originals are entitled “You’ve Got a Life (Larry)”, “Unforgiven”, and “Make it Right”.
On November 21st, 2020 the band released an LP album entitled "Hollywood".
