With her soulful, impeccably tuned voice and crafted poetry, Boston singer-songwriter 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. Alice’s 2017 EP You’ve Been Away So Long features her original song “Homeland Blues,” which debuted at #1 on the April Folk DJ chart and came in as the #7 song of the entire year. She was a 2017 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, and has performed at such venerable Northeast venues as Club Passim, Caffè Lena, and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts.
“A gem…at once of the moment and personal, timeless and universal.” – Mark Walton, Americana UK
“Up there with the very best of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters and Dar Williams” – Folking.com
“These are well crafted songs” – Country Music People (UK)
“This music is visceral, real and simple” – Folkwords
“…I could listen to her sing for hours. Her voice is beautiful as a bell, classic in that Joan Baez way, transporting, wistful…her vocal mastery and musicality are beyond her young years and her songs stay in my head for days.” -Antje Duvekot
“How can a singer-songwriter have a voice like a broken angel’s bell and write songs that could be a week or a hundred years old all at once? Alice Howe, that’s how.” – Vance Gilbert
“Classic emotive folk reminiscent of Kate Wolf, 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.” – Robby Hecht
