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. 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. She self-released her first full-length studio album in April 2016. "Orbit" comprises nine jazz-influenced, eclectic tracks recorded between Cape Town and Berlin that encapsulate the freshness of her lifestyle, vagabond spirit and showcase her distinctive, soprano voice. Produced by Matteo and Kyson, 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 artworks to match each track. The result is an intricately woven pattern of the soul, blues, and jazz: scattered with retro, beatnik melodies; soothing vocal harmonies and sleazy brass flourishes.
