Introducing ALICE ARMSTRONG

FINALIST IN THE UK BLUES AWARDS 2022 “BLUES VOCALIST OF THE YEAR”

Really loving that vocal” Craig Charles, BBC Radio 2

Alice Armstrong is a multi UK Blues Awards nominated singer-songwriter from the UK, known for her wide vocal range, unconventional lyrics, long red hair and enigmatic delivery, topped off with light-sensitivity glasses and an unrivalled love for chips.

After gaining a following fronting and writing for the Crossfire Blues Band with celebrated young guitarist, Marcus Praestgaard-Stevens, Alice spent the last few years on the stage of many of the UK’s biggest rhythm and blues festivals, completed a European tour and featured in both the 2020 and 2021 UK Blues Awards, singing alongside renowned musicians on a lockdown cover of “Soulshine” by the Allman Brothers.  

It is now the right time for Alice to launch her own “solo” career with support from a brand new 5-piece band.  She is also working on a brand new album of original material and this is scheduled for release in the summer 2022. 

Alice credits Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Donnie Hathaway, Amy Winehouse, Peggy Lee and Dinah Washington to be her main musical influences, peppering her performances with her trademark sense of humour.
