There aren’t many new musicians who can harness the elemental rock’n’roll soul of both Ike and Tina and Jimi and Janis. Alice Gold though, comes bloomin’ close, a powerful pull of both masculine and feminine laced together with straight out Patti Smith punk spirit and a keen pop ear.
Gold by name and gold by nature, there’s an immense warmth in Alice’s sound and lyrics. She’s been A-listed by Radio 2, toured with the likes of Eels, Athlete and Noah & The Whale and her debut album is one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2011. Exciting times!
Alice will be playing on The Empire stage alongside a host of other acts including Jon Fratelli, Clinic, Cloud Control, Young Rebel Set and Cattle & cane.
