Ali Gatie knows the way to your heart is through your ears.
Over the course of 2018, the 22-year-old singer-songwriter from the Toronto suburb of Mississauga self-released a string of projects that took him from square one of his career to a global fan base, racking up millions of streams of unexpected hits like the acoustic-tinged ballad “Moonlight.” In the process he revealed himself to have not only the single-minded focus and work ethic of a 21st-century hustler but the heart of a classic songsmith.
Now, he’s released his newest hit “What If I Told You That I Love You” and we’re in love!
Ali doesn’t shy away from writing about the big subjects that have always consumed great artists, concepts like love, and devotion that many young artists these days shy away from. His sound mines the fertile area where R&B and contemporary pop overlap–although from a brighter side of the spectrum than you might associate with crooners from the 6–but it’s delivered with openness and honesty, mixing the timeless songwriting of contemporary icons like Ed Sheeran with the next-generation sounds of Post Malone, Juice Wrld, and Charlie Puth.
