Alice Rose (DK)
Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, Alice Rose plays and sings beautiful, mesmerizing and thoroughly modern music that captures the essense of the old world and the new. Her one-woman performances, her stunning vocals, her jugglers skill using samplers, computer, beat boxes, strings, casios, keyboards, harmonicas and toys--all come together in a delicious concoction of electro-folk--equal parts trip-hop, pop, electronica and dance.

During her electro-acoustic shows, drum computers, casios and effect machines are spread out across the table. Alice also plays the viola with her own bowing style and sings her intriguing lyrics with a voice that spans a wide register, from the sweet angelic, to the hard and wild... her performances are always entertaining and fun. The repertoire stretches from folky easy-listening songs to modern electro and from lo-fi experimental to uptempo dance.
