“Warm and engaging...one of the finest voices of any female singer-songwriter”
— Rich Warren, WFMT Chicago
With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice and crafted poetry, Boston singer-songwriter Alice Howe is "at once of the moment and timeless, personal and universal" (Mark Walton, Americana UK). Her pure, distilled sound reflects a musical sensibility rooted in '60s folk and '70s Southern California songwriters. Credit is due to Alice's parents for raising her on a steady diet of Taj Mahal, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, Jackson Browne, and Joan Baez. As a performer, she is sure-footed and captivating, familiar to her audience from the very first song.
2017 was the year that Alice began making big waves in the folk world. Her EP You've Been Away So Long debuted on the April Folk-DJ charts with a #1 song - "Homeland Blues" - and #11 album. "Homeland Blues" went on to become the #7 song for all of 2017. Alice has been touring consistently in support of the EP in throughout the US, and recently returned from a critically acclaimed tour of the UK and the Netherlands. All in the last year, she was a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, an Official Showcase Artist at FAR-West, and a Formal Showcase Artist at NERFA.
Alice had just completed her first full-length album, Visions, produced by Freebo (Bonnie Raitt, CSN, Ringo Starr) and recorded in Bakersfield, CA. The new album features a collection of new originals and my interpretations of iconic songs such as Muddy Waters' "Honey Bee”, "Too Long at the Fair," first covered by Bonnie Raitt, and songs from Dylan and Taj Mahal. The release is expected in early 2019.
