London, United Kingdom (2006 – 2011)

Sian Alice Group have a talent for artfully wrought, wholly realized compositions.

They have an instinctively experimental approach to their songwriting, and take in elements of , , , , and to create a mix that sounds both organic and completely original.

At the heart of Sian Alice Group are multi-instrumentalists Rupert Clervaux, Ben Crook and vocalist Sian Ahern. The three formed the group in late 2006. Rupert and Ben have both honed their crafts through different outlets in and around London for nearly ten years, Clervaux as a producer and engineer (he is currently working with J. Spaceman, Alexis Taylor, Spring Heel Jack and Treader records), and Crook working on a series of home recordings under the name 40,000 Ghosts. Having talked about collaborating for years, the two teamed up with vocalist Ahern to form Sian Alice Group. With a grandiose sound in mind, Sasha Vine was added on violin and piano.

In the beginning of 2007 Sian Alice Group played their first live show in Copenhagen and followed it with two shows opening up for Spiritualized in the UK. This was followed by some US shows and the release of a 7”, Nightsong, on The Social Registry in the summer of 2007.
