Alice Phoebe Lou

Singer - Europe
Alice Phoebe Lou

 

Alice began busking across Berlin with just her guitar, a small amplifier on a trolley and her mesmerising voice. Her captivating delivery and natural talent started to garner a cult street following with people coming to see her busk and buy her records. 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. Alice soon 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 and a 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.

Between Paris and Amsterdam; experiencing the highs and lows of street performances' underbelly, that summer Alice roamed. A creative inspiration and gave Alice an enduring taste for the immediacy of street crowds was the vagabond lifestyle. Upon her return to South Africa to complete her studies, Alice's path led her back to Europe and she made her way to the German capital - Berlin. She immersed herself in the creative world and the freedom of the city was intoxicating.

Now having spent two years playing intimate gigs across Europe and South Africa, and supporting established like-minded artists like Rodriguez, 2016 will see Alice releasing her first full length studio album. The album is a testament to Alice's collaborative way of writing and features musicians from South Africa and Europe lending their musical skills and different visual artists producing art works to match each track, produced by Matteo and Kyson. Vagabond spirit and showcase her distinctive, soprano voice, Orbit comprises nine jazz-influenced, eclectic tracks recorded between Cape Town and Berlin that encapsulate the freshness of her live style. The result is an intricately woven pattern of soul, blues and jazz: scattered with retro, beatnik melodies; soothing vocal harmonies and sleazy brass flourishes.

At the tender age of 21, the singer-songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa has been performing on the streets of Berlin since 2013. A beautiful performance at TEDx Berlin that same year went viral and took her music beyond the German capital. Towards worldwide fame and fortune? Not if she can help it. Alice talks street performance in Europe, social awareness and protest music.

Shes 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, Alice has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice.

Alice grew up on a mountainside in South Africa listening to her parent's records and indulging her love of theatre, arts and music at a local Waldorf school; a formative time that nurtured her independence and desire to experience music of all styles. Being part of a multi-faceted creative upbringing mixed with natural wanderlust and in 2010, 16-year-old Alice made her first journey to Europe during her summer break from school. She began to perform inspired by watching fire dancers in Paris likewise to get enough money to fund her travelling.
