Poppy Alice is a local singer/songwriter from Kent with an exceptional voice and talent for writing a variety of songs that reflect her thoughts and ideas. With influences including Ed Sheeran, Jessie J, Adele and Eva Cassidy to name a few, her range of emerging songs are an eclectic mix of styles centered around an acoustic/folk genre. Performing over a year, Poppy Alice has been delivering her emotionally powerful performances at numerous festivals, pubs and private functions accompanying her vocals with her beloved guitar.
She released her eagerly awaited 5 track EP entitled ‘Just As I Am’ at the Local and Live Festival 2012 and is already back in the recording studio to complete the next album which will hopefully be released early in Summer 2013. Poppy Alice has also recently starting performing with locally acclaimed guitarists Andy Vickery (Intraverse, The Breretons) and Steve McCormack (The Charlie Rivers Band) who will also be adding (and probably improving!) the guitar on the coming album. After finishing school this year, she's planning to take a year out to focus on her music including traveling to Australia to tour for a few months. Then, following her place acceptance, she hopes to continue establishing herself as an artist at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London. Find her on Facebook, Twitter or Soundcloud.
