NYC-bred singer, songwriter, and producer Alice Smith, known for her four-octave vocal range and stunning stage presence, made a name for herself with her critically acclaimed 2006 debut album, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me (2006, BBE Records). At the time, her artful blend of bluesy, soulful vocals and mid-tempo grooves garnered a passionate following that packed venues like NYC’s Mercury Lounge and Joe’s Pub, while Vibe Magazine gushed that her sound “evoke Fiona Apple’s finest material.” Her single “Dream” was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Urban/Alternative category.
Smith signed to Epic Records after a bidding war and re-released For Lovers in 2007. The next four years were dedicated to writing and recording new material. Meanwhile, Epic experienced a great deal of tumult, and Smith suddenly found herself at an impasse. Though she was producing new material at a steady clip, it was being held back by the inner workings of her label. Though her fans may have wondered what happened to Alice Smith, she was hardly silent during those years. She performed new material for sold-out crowds at top venues like New York’s Highline Ballroom, SOB’s and Blue Note Jazz Club, and Los Angeles’s Wiltern Theater. However, she didn't release any new albums. Today, she's back and eager to share with her fans a hotly-anticipated dose of new music.
