- Alice Phoebe Lou
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. Born in South Africa and having developed her ethereal indie-folk sound busking on the streets of Berlin, Alice has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice.
Alice first traversed Europe in 2010, at the age of 16. Armed with just an acoustic guitar, she began to develop a devoted street following of fans, supporters and collaborators. She soon self-released her first body of work, the Momentum EP. By 2014, she was garnering international attention. In 2014 and 2015, she performed at TED events in Berlin and London, respectively, as well as Exponential Medicine. 2016 brought about the release of Alice's first full length studio album, Orbit, comprised of nine jazz-influenced, eclectic tracks recorded between Cape Town and Berlin that encapsulate the freshness of her live style, vagabond spirit and distinctive, soprano voice. She was then nominated for BEST FEMALE ARTIST at the 2016 German Critics Choice Awards, and performed at the 27th Annual Conference for the Professional Business Women of California, sharing stage with keynote speakers Venus Williams, Judy Smith and Memory Banda.
Alice spent much of 2016 on the road, touring with artists such as Sixto Rodriguez, Boy & Bear, Allen Stone and Crystal Fighters. She also put on three sold out multimedia events at the Berlin Planetarium, the biggest in Europe. The shows all sold out within 24 hours of being on sale, and by demand she added two additional planetarium performances to her 2017 tour itinerary. The shows were a spectacular symbiosis of live sound and amazing visuals which Alice worked on hand in hand with the director of the planetarium, Tim Florian Horn.
2017 saw a live version of the song "She" going viral. The performance video has well over two million plays on YouTube, and it was selected to be featured in the film BOMBSHELL: THE HEDY LAMARR STORY, executive produced by Susan Sarandon. The movie has already won several awards including BEST DOCUMENTARY (New York Film Critics, Online) and been nominated for numerous others. It was recently announced that "She" has been placed on the Oscars shortlist for BEST ORIGINAL SONG. In addition, Alice self-released the EP, Sola, in December of last year.
Alice performed 6 shows at SXSW this year including a radio performance and IV on KGSR Live SXSW Morning Broadcast. The day after SXSW ended her and her 3 band members flew from Austin to San Francisco to start recording Alice's second full length album. The 10 tracks that comprise "Paper Castles" were recorded at Panoramic House in Marin County CA (https://www.panoramic-house.com/), a residential studio with a fairy tale layout embed on the side of hills facing the Pacific Ocean. Producer Noah Georgeson (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noah_Georgeson) directed the recording sessions for over two weeks, helping Alice's find the constellation of each song that felt right for her. Him and Samur (engineer) had immediately synergy with the band which made the days creating the album flow with ease. They helped each musician track their best performances. The final part of recording the album saw Alice and Noah honing down on her vocals at Seahorse Studio in LA.
Noah Georgeson also mixed the album.
While at the studio in California Alice was still needing to fund part of the album. She decided to organise a show from abroad back in her hometown of Berlin wanting also to present her new songs with her new band. A moment of celebration. All 500 tickets were sold via her web site, sold out in 8hours.
Alice has wanted to play in Japan for a long time. This year she saw the opportunity and arranged a tour directly with Shunsuke, promoter who had reached out showing enthusiasm and interest in booking Alice to play in Tokyo. Alice played 5 shows, including a festival (Ocean People) and her first headline show in Tokyo, which was sold out. Alongside that tour she licensed her first record "Orbit" + bonus track "She" (which was released in February this year) to small independent label Tuff Beats who release a Japanese version of her album (digital and physical) a week before the tour.
Alice went on to perform at various festivals throughout the summer; a personal highlight for her being headlining one of the main stages at Fusion Festival at the stroke of midnight. She also played her first two festivals in N.America; Edmonton Folk Festival and Wanderlust, and played headline shows in Vancouver and Toronto.
She also performed three more shows at the Planetarium in Berlin on the 13th, 14th and 15th of September. Audio visual concept show she developed with Tim Florian Horn; director of Berlin's Zeiss Großplaneatrium (biggest planetarium in Europe) in autumn 2016 which Alice and her band have performed at the planetarium 11 times now, always sold out within a day or two of being released to the public.
Alice just completed a European tour this November with 10 of her 12 shows being sold out, the other two being over 90% sold out.
The day after she releases Something Holy Alice will be performing a sold out show at the 1000 capacity Studio 1 at the Funkhaus: venue built in the 1952 to record orchestras is the biggest recording live room in Europe with an amazing architectural design and acoustic treatment. www.funkhaus-berlin.net
Alice will be performing with her trusted band, 3 piece brass section, and a choir of 20 women
In March she will embark on her first headline tour in the US in support of the release of Paper Castles, the new album planned for release in 2019...
