Bio

22 year old Alice Skye is a singer-songwriter, Wergaia woman and universal little sister. Now living in Melbourne, home to Alice Skye is country Victoria. Growing up aside the Grampians and no shortage of inspiration – music was unavoidable. It’s just her and her piano.

Alice Skye’s songs sparkle with a sensitivity and maturity well beyond her years, accompanied by the gentle and hauntingly sparse melodies of a piano score. Very like young 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.

this track always sounds so good when it airs on Double J so I just wanted to drop by and say so.

Those chords reminded me of Cowboy Junkies version of Sweet Jane. It's got such a calming feel, and Alice nails that fragile yet strong vocal combo.
