Authentic, raw, bold and unique can be words used to describe Aly Jados, as she is a force to be reckoned with. She has performed on some of the biggest stages in Chicago like Soldier Field (opening for Metallica) to small intimate clubs around the city. Her raspy rock n roll voice is reminiscent of the likes of Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain with an Amy Winehouse twist.
Aly's distinctive gritty pipes not only earned her spots on shows like American Idol (2011) and the Voice (2012), but one on 2015's all female Kiss cover album, Kiss and Makeup, which was directly supported by original band members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley.
Since 2016, you can find Aly fronting Chicago's rock n roll outfit Blood People. The band performed at Riot Fest in 2018 after the release of their 2nd EP Great Reactor. Here's what Chicago Tribune's Jessi Roti had to say about the performance:
"Give me a punk singer who sounds like she lives off cigarettes and whiskey, and I’m in love. Local punk outfit Blood People did just that. A set stacked with riffs, often punctuated by the hard crack of a drumstick, the band’s intensity under the sun was like a punch to the gut. But technical quality wasn’t sacrificed for the sake of volume or speed, as songs like “Shapeshifter” and “Last One Standing” sounded just as good live as on recording. The only issue? Why put a band this good on a stage tucked away?"
These days, you can still catch her with her trusty Les Paul slung over her shoulder by a Kiss guitar strap, rocking rooms all throughout Chicago, where she plays monthly residences to her growing base of loyal fans. With new material in the works and a thrist for the limelight, it's only a matter of time: This girl's bound for rock n roll stardom.
