Wer die Südafrikanerin nur von ihren Straßenkonzerten kennt, wird überrascht sein, plötzlich Bläser, Kontrabässe, Klaviere, Glockenspiele, Schlagzeuge und verdoppelte Gesangsspuren zu hören. Sofort wiedererkennbar sind hingegen ihre klare, warme Stimme und ihr Fingerpicking. Manchmal erinnert sie ein wenig an Leslie Feist, dann wieder schlendert sie in folkige und jazzige Regionen. Die Songs der einstigen Waldorfschülerin folgen dabei keinen festen Patterns, sie haben meist nicht mal Refrains, was ihnen eine mäandernde Traumverlorenheit verleiht.

ALICE PHOEBE LOU

Singer-Songwriter / Blues / Pop / Folk / Country

Alice Phoebe Lou's fiercely independent approach to her music has given the singer-songwriter a creative confidence that shines through in her captivating vocals and stripped back music. Having developed her bluesy, folk sound busking on the streets of Berlin, the South-African artist has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice. Alice began busking across Berlin with just her guitar, a small amplifier on a trolley and her mesmerising voice. Her natural talent and captivating delivery started to garner a cult street following with people coming to see her busk and buy her records. The uncompromising creative community of Berlin also helped Alice grow musically and she collaborated with acoustic, jazz and electronic musicians; including multi-instrumentalist Matteo who quickly became Alice's live performance companion. Soon Alice self-released her first body of work - the Momentum EP - her first collaborative effort recorded between Berlin and Cape Town with five different producers. Although by now interest was sparked with several major labels, Alice's desire to maintain the creative freedom she had fostered kept her focus on growing her digital community of loyal fans and imagining ever more interesting settings for her intimate live shows.
