With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice and crafted poetry, Boston’s Alice Howe is “at once of the moment and timeless, personal and universal” (Mark Walton, Americana UK).
Her pure, distilled sound reflects a musical sensibility rooted in ’60s folk and ’70s Southern California songwriters. 2017 was the year that Alice began making big waves in the folk world. Her EP You’ve Been Away So Long debuted on the April Folk-DJ charts with a #1 song – “Homeland Blues” – and #11 album. Alice was selected as a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, an Official Showcase Artist at FAR-West Folk Alliance, and a Formal Showcase Artist at Northeast Regional Folk Alliance. She has been touring consistently in support of her EP, playing at such venerable Northeast venues as Club Passim, Caffe Lena, and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. In March 2018 she appeared to rave reviews on WFMT Chicago’s iconic program “Folkstage” hosted by Rich Warren. She is currently hard at work on her first full-length album in Bakersfield, California, produced by legendary bass player turned award-winning singer-songwriter Freebo (Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Dr. John, and many others). The release is expected in late 2018.
