We were delighted when soulful Boston-area folk singer-songwriter Alice Howe and legendary bass player Freebo (Bonnie Raitt, CSN, Maria Muldaur, Ringo Starr, Dr. John, and many others) dropped by WEXT to play some songs and chat with Dave Michaels.
2017 was the year that Alice began making big waves in the folk world. Her EP You've Been Away So Long debuted on the April Folk-DJ charts with a #1 song - "Homeland Blues" - and #11 album. "Homeland Blues" went on to become the #7 song for all of 2017. Alice has been touring consistently in support of the EP, playing at such venerable Northeast venues as Club Passim, Caffe Lena, and Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. All in the last year, she was a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist, an Official Showcase Artist at FAR-West, and a Semi-Formal Showcase Artist at NERFA.
Alice is currently hard at work on her first full-length album at Aum Studio Productions in Bakersfield, California, produced by legendary bass player turned award-winning singer-songwriter Freebo. The release is expected in late 2018. To stay up to date on the progress of the new album, upcoming shows, and other news, please join Alice's mailing list or follow her artist page on Facebook or Instagram.
