Alice Skye is an exciting emergence in the Australian-Indigenous music scene. Since the beginning of 2015, she has been garnering attention for original songs that sparkle with a sensitivity and maturity well beyond her years.

Compared with British singer-songwriter Birdy, Alice’s voice is a combination of hopeful and haunting, naturally sweet and slow and dreamlike. Her stripped back piano melodies elevate the gentle moodiness of her songwriting, transforming her once bedroom scribblings into well-crafted and articulated lyrics on love, loss and life.

Alice has been named one of the five new Indigenous artists you need to hear and was listed amongst The Courier Mail’s Top 5 acts to see at BIGSOUND 2017.
