ALICE PHOEBE LOU is a South African who developed her bluesy, folk sound busking on the streets of Berlin. She has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice. Alice grew up on a mountainside in South Africa listening to her parent’s records and indulging her love of theatre, arts and music at a local Waldorf school; a formative time that nurtured her independence and desire to experience music of all styles.
She left South Africa with no money and started busking in Berlin. She was invited to perform at TEDx Berlin, of which her performance went viral and received almost half a million views.
Alice released her new album ORBIT last year in Europe, which charted at #2 on the German iTunes singer/songwriter charts and at #1 on the Austrian singer/songwriter charts. In September she was also nominated for Best Female Artist at the German Critics Choice Awards (Popkultur Awards). Rolling Stone in Germany published a 6 page spread on Alice praising her independent approach to releasing music. She has been on the cover of Tip Magazine in Berlin and also sold out 4 nights at the Berlin Planetarium.
Alice Phoebe Lou will be returning to South Africa next month for 2 shows in Cape Town, and one show in Jozi.
