And now, after 3 years of challenging studio work, song-writing and finding that unique spark, Aly & Fila proudly present ‘Quiet Storm’.

Aly & Fila:”We never stopped learning, never stopped improving. We’ve always progressed. The album has been worked on patiently. We really want it to create a big impact, like a quiet storm brewing.” And so it does. With its 16 musical jewels, ‘Quiet Storm’ lights many new shades of Aly & Fila’s production skills.
