Catch Alice Phoebe Lou live in SA in February!

2017-01-19 20:01

Cape Town - This February, South African Alice Phoebe Lou returns to the country for three shows.

Alice has been developing her bluesy, folk sound busking on the streets of Berlin and she has caught the ears of a community of music lovers the world over with her honest storytelling and raw, beautiful voice. Growing up in Cape Town, she left South Africa with no money and started busking on the streets of 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 also published a six 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 four nights at the Berlin Planetarium.

Alice now returns to South Africa for the first time since the release of her new album. In February 2017, she will be performing two shows in Cape Town and one in Johannesburg.
