Alice Russell (born 16 March 1976) is a soul singer from Suffolk, England whose love for gospel and soul helped shape her sound, inspired by the legends: Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin and Minnie Ripperton.

Born into a musical family and the daughter of an organist, Russell’s love for music was nurtured from an early age as she began learning the cello age nine and sung in choirs. In 1994 Russell went to university in Brighton, England to study art and music.

In the early noughties, Russell started making a name for herself as she featured on recordings for the likes of Mr Scruff, Nostalgia 77 and Quantic which really showed the versatility of her voice as she meandered through Latin, funk, jazz and soul. In 2004 she released her debut album “Under the Munka Moon” through the label Tru Thoughts which featured a collection of singles, collaborations and remixes. Her follow up album “My Favourite Letters” (2005) received favourable reviews from critics as Russell steadily made a name for herself with her powerfully textured soulful vocals.

In 2008 she released her fourth album “Pot of Gold” through Six Degrees Records in the US and on her own label Little Poppet in the UK. Russell has supported the likes of Femi Kuti, De La Soul, played alongside Amy Winehouse and performed at Big Chill, SXSW and Montreal Jazz Festival.

The joy in Russell’s music is witnessing it live as she jumps leaps and bounds. Whether it’s an intimate performance with a single spotlight on or accompanied by a 16 piece band performing in front of 4000 people, the unique experience Russell provides time after time leaves audiences walking away with goosebumps as her silky smooth bluesy vocals captivates the entire room. An incredible British talent, Russell has an abundance of passion and with each release delves into the depths of her soul.
