Cousin Alice

Hailed by Jools Holland as making him "think Tom Waites meets Peggy Lee & Marianne Faithful", Cousin Alice's unique singing and playing defies description.

Leading the trio on her vintage banjo ukulele, her voice has been described as "a post-apocalyptic smoky blend of roughly ground coffee and charred Cuban cigars" (The Boisdale Club) and her personality shines through in every song, with a dark emotional intensity, across the wide spectrum of subjects she writes and sings about.

Forget an evening filled with fluffy love songs - Alice exudes an exuberant joy, born of surviving what the world has thrown in her face.

Mixing old school acoustic blues and jazz standards like My Baby Just Cares For Me with retro reggae & calypso sounds from her mother's island of Barbados, and a touch of Leonard Cohen, this English singer songwriter has also penned her own hit songs, including a Number 1 hit Kukerichoo in South Korea.

Fresh from 4 months touring of Mexico, Costa Rica & Los Angeles, Alice is back in her home town of London with some new flavours from her travels.

A truly vintage sound, backed by Martin Wheatley - the unchallenged master of Swing on guitar - and his son, Tom Wheatley - a gifted musician on double bass. This acoustic trio has a truly toe tapping vibe.
