Alice Phoebe Lou- The Birn Interview
March 5, 2019 @ 6:00 pm EST
Tune into BIRN1 on Tuesday, March 5 at 6:00 p.m. for a special BIRN Alive performance by Alice Phoebe Lou.
Alice Phoebe Lou first traversed Europe in 2010 at the age of 16. Inspired by street artists, she began performing as a fire dancer before eventually turning to music. She relocated to Berlin, Germany, in 2013 and began to develop a devoted following of fans, supporters, and collaborators. She soon self-released her first EP, Momentum. By 2014, she was receiving international attention. That year and the following, she performed at TED events in Berlin and London, as well as at Exponential Medicine.
In 2016, Lou released Orbit, her first full-length studio album. The album was composed of nine jazz-influenced, eclectic tracks recorded between Cape Town, South Africa, and Berlin that encapsulate the freshness of her live style, vagabond spirit, and distinctive soprano voice.
In December 2017, Lou independently released the EP Sola. That same year, a live version of her song “She” was released, racking up more than 2 million plays on YouTube. In addition, the single was selected to be featured in the film Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, executive produced by Susan Sarandon. The studio version of “She” was released in February 2018, premiering on NPR’s All Songs Considered.
After several performances at SXSW, Lou headed west to California to record her forthcoming album, Paper Castles, to be released in March. In support of the album, she will embark on a world tour, including her first headlining run in North America.
