Alice Smith background
Smith released her first album, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me, in 2016 -- and it won her critical acclaim around the world. It took her seven years to release her next studio album, She. However, the talented musician created music for several major TV shows during the intervening years.
Smith is determined to stay true to her musical roots, which is why she still creates her own hybrid brand of music -- in her own way. She prefers the intimacy of small crowds, and uses gigs at venues such as The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to truly connect with her audience.
Alice Smith career highlights
Listed by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the 10 artists to watch in 2006, Alice Smith has enjoyed both critical and commercial success over the years. Smith toured the US and Europe following the chart success of her first album, but she was soon back in the studio writing new material. Smith's song, "Dream," featured heavily in season four of HBO's Entourage, as well as Showtime's The L Word.
Alice Smith received a Grammy nominationin 2007, but retreated from the public eye shortly afterwards. She shelved her second album because of the pressures caused by her sudden success, and because she wanted to move to Los Angeles to raise her children. It wasn't until 2011 that Smith made her long-awaited comeback. She collaborated with Aloe Blacc of the Red Hot Organization, and then started work on her second album shortly afterwards.
Smith's second album achieved moderate chart success, but failed to match the achievements of her first. She later performed with Eric Clapton and Prince, and recorded a cover version of "I Put a Spell on You" for the TV show Nina Revisited: A Tribute to Nina Simone.
Alice Smith concert tickets are usually in high demand, thanks to her reputation for putting on edgy, experimental live shows. The soul diva has graced the stage at a selection of relatively small theaters in the past, including the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater in Washington, D.C., and Le Poisson Rouge in New York. She has also performed with jazz musician Bilial in a series of shows across the country.
