Alice Russel is a British soul singer. Thanks to her powerful voice, Alice has been defined by several critics as ‘a pure talent, a force of nature’, attracting the praise from people of the like of Gilles Peterson, David Byrne, Massive Attack’s Daddy G and Groove Armada. With a portfolio of collaborations with producers such as Mr. Scruff, Nostalgia 77 and Quantic, her blues takes inspiration from different artists and music genres: from Bach to Kate Bush, J Dilla and Alice Coltrane. Over the course of her career, Alice Russell has been compared to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and many of the classic Soul artists she grew up admiring. Instead of being a nostalgic retro-soul singer, she looks at the contemporary, infusing her style with hip-hop, hard funk, dance music, and even jazz rhythms with a little hint of Motown worship.
