Soundcrash are proud to present the wonderful Alice Russell Live at Scala in support of her new album “To Dust”.
Alice Russell is all pure natural talent, a musical force to be reckoned with. Whether on a big stage charming a crowd of 4000 into staying out dancing in the rain (as she did at Montreal Jazz Festival) or rocking out an intimate club set she’s a singer who demands attention.
Back again with longtime production partner TM Juke, there is a brand new album entitled ‘To Dust’ in the can and ready for release on 25th February. First single from the forthcoming album is entitled ‘Heartbreaker’ and sees Alice Russell back to her soulful best. To Dust sees Alice exploring every letter of the soul lexicon. From the Prince-esque strut of Hard And Strong to the epic intensity of the title track. Heartstring tugging I Loved You ; the sonically smooth yet emotionally raw Twin Peaks to the pulse-quickening build of Let Go (Breakdown) & psychedelic social consciousness of Citizens Alice is never less than scintillating as she displays emotions so real you feel you could reach out & touch them. The idiosyncratic structure of the LP, peppered with interludes & reprises, makes for a unique & satisfyingly whole album experience.
As much as she loves being in the studio there’s something special about Alice let loose on an audience. From performing with a full band and horn section, to pared down and more intimate sets, Alice Russell takes no prisoners!
Joining us in support on this fine evening will be our man Scrimshire. Scrimshire’s sound is steeped in jazz, soul and funk, but with a nod to contemporary sounds, and with strong popular song writing sensibilities.
As a singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, DJ and now label boss at Wah Wah, Adam wears a good few hats. But above all, this man knows how to write a tune!
