“strikingly soulful… jaw dropping” – MOJO
“one of Britain’s best kept secrets” – THE INDEPENDENT
“Working with a singer like Alice was something new, terrifying and ultimately amazing.” – DAVID BYRNE
To Dust is her first solo album since 2008's Pot Of Gold , and marks the next step forward in a remarkable career. Whether on a big stage with her 16 piece band, charming a crowd of 4000 into staying out dancing in the rain (as she did at Montreal Jazz Festival) or rocking out an intimate club with a stripped-down six piece, Alice s natural talent and charisma have always commanded attention and affection. Unfazed by taking to the spotlight after a sober Amy Winehouse or joining Roy Ayers live for "Everybody Loves The Sunshine" , it is no wonder she has attracted worldwide media support, and praise from fans as diverse as Gilles Peterson, David Byrne, Dennis Coffey, Massive Attack s Daddy G, and Groove Armada.
