Alice Smith / Trixie Whitley
With notes of '60s pop, Burt Bacharach-style melodies and that intoxicating element ofattitude, Alice Smith’s upcoming collection has something for die-hard followers and new fans alike. Her sound has evolved, adding lush, orchestral arrangements and multihued melodies. Though she has always been an artist at heart, Smith is now a mother, and she’s been through some powerful experiences over the past few years. She emerges with new insights to realize through song. Still singing, of course, but today, stepping out independently, she has all the more reason to give 'em something they can feel. Sharing the stage is Trixie Whitley, whose magnetic presence and stunning voice captivated audiences worldwide in 2010 and 2011 as she toured the world performing with Black Dub. During the Black Dub recording sessions, she also recorded her second EP, The Engine, featuring her own music, and began preparing to record her debut as a leader.
