It’s rare for contemporaries to scream from the mountain tops that someone very special has emerged who deserves the spotlight, but in America, they gathered around Alice Howe and put the word out that here was a singer-songwriter with the kind of qualities that had earned many of the great names legendary status.

Robby Hecht said she was “reminiscent of Kate Wolf,” and added: “Alice Howe's earnest lyrics and heart-melting vocals might be the musical equivalent of lying in the dark beneath a clear sky of stars.”

Fellow Bostonian, Antje Duvekot held my many to be “folk royalty,” said that she could happily “listen to her sing for hours.”

“Her voice is beautiful as a bell, classic in that Joan Baez way,” she added.

Alice first came to the attention of the American media during a three-year stint in Seattle where she rapidly became a well loved face on the vibrant acoustic music scene. After moving back to her home town, she slid effortlessly into the top end of the club circuit, appearing at many of the best spots, such as Club Passim. She regularly turns out with legendary bassist, Freebo (with Bonnie Raitt 10 years, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, & many more).

The 2017-issued EP, "You've Been Away So Long" traced the New England native's years in the Pacific Northwest and went on to win an army of new fans.

Since releasing that record in the UK, many feel she is about to make the big breakthrough on this side of the Atlantic too.

Featuring several tracks, well-respected BBC Radio Wales presenter Frank Hennessy told listeners she had “a voice I have fallen in love with – and how!” Seasoned reviewer and radio presenter Mike Davies, writing at Folking.com said that Alice was “up there with the very best of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters and Dar Williams,” while AmericianaUK said the recording was “a gem.”

“Touching the spirit of the moment, this music is visceral, and real” said Folkwords..
