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 smokey blend of roughly ground coffee & 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 - Cousin 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 ("Dance me to the end of love"), this Bajan-Kiwi 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 & Puerta Rico, Cousin Alice is back in her adopted home town of London with some new flavours from her travels.
A truly vintage sound, backed by the UK's unchallenged master of vintage swing, guitarist Martin Wheatley, and double bassist Jonny Gee (who has performed with Dame Cleo Laine, Ravi Shankar & Brian May), this acoustic trio has a truly foot-tapping vibe.
DIVA Magazine says: "Jazz glamour. She's swing. She's gorgeous."
