'Blessed with the natural stage presence of Siouxsie Sioux, the vocal command of Björk and the dark phrasing of Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, [Alice] is a rare and singular talent.' - LOUDERTHANWAR
Formerly Alice's Night Circus, Alice Strange is classically trained and started her journey in classical music before venturing into her own style of music which encompasses influences from a wide range of musical genres and literature. She now performs her own original songs.
Alice started singing professionally in her late teens whilst running her own business as a designer of fashion and jewellery. It was however following a meeting with Eliot Kennedy – Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer - that she ventured into Steelwork Studios to “find” her own sound through the writing of her own songs.
Alice released her first album called Metamorphose, it was a curious journey down a musical rabbit hole, featuring a blend of apocalyptic fairy-tale Steampop with a touch of the circus but discovered along the way that there were more sounds and styles she wanted to explore and to allow a broader thematic scope changed her name to Alice Strange.
‘From day one I realised we were working with a real artist in [Alice]. Not only a designer of fashion and jewellery but also a real visionary regarding her music. It was a fab project to be a part of and I am really proud of what we have done together. I wish every success possible!!!' - Eliot Kennedy - Songwriter / Producer
Alice has had M.E./Fibro since the age of 17 and the life experiences this has brought her have strongly influenced her music, which concentrates on the positive outcomes that can be achieved by overcoming a range of lifes difficulties.
She is a very popular artist within the Steampunk, Fantasy and Faery communities and is also developing her fan base into the greater population, having performed at Fantasy Forest, Zandari Festa Music Festival in Seoul, South Korea, Liverpool Sound City, Lincoln Engine Shed, Lincoln Castle, Whitby Pavilion and the Legendary Llangollen Faery Festival.
Jessica Law is accompanied by her nefarious band of Outlaws, Jessica Law specialises in wry, theatrical folk songs with a strong storytelling element. Covering subjects as diverse as vengeful mermaids, noisy ghosts and lost polar explorers, her melodies will haunt you as much as her stories.
"As is fast becoming the norm, it is difficult to compare Julia to any current musical style or genre. Her originality of voice and skill with melody set her a millennia apart " - Paul Oldfield, Radio Presenter and Music Journalist
"Hailing from Staffordshire, a landlocked English town with green grass and castles, the Julia Mosley faithfully recreate the sense of fantasy of that part of the world through dreamy and glamorous melodies" - Douglas Menagh, New Noise Magazine.
