About Alice Harvey
“A great new talent, a lovely voice” is how Angie Carter, Director
of the Eyam Jazz Festival in the Derbyshire Peak District, described
Alice after her debut at the event in 2003. Although it was her
first jazz festival (and by the way, she went down a storm) Alice’s
talent is hardly new. She’s been singing ever since she could
hold a tune. She originally started out as a session singer at
a very young age, singing in various styles including Country,
Pop and Soul. However, her love of jazz and blues grew as she
started listening to her greatest influences Ella Fitzgerald and
Billie Holiday. Since then she has sung in various styles, including
pop, country and soul, in studios as widely spread as London,
Derbyshire, Cheshire and Surrey.
Alice is an incredibly versatile singer and loves many styles
of music. These days she is working hard on building a gigging
and recording career with her own band, at the core of which is
superb pianist Eugene Portman. Alice and Eugene enjoy playing
at many wedding venues, events and parties across the UK. The
repertoire, sophisticated, romantic and very classy, is a rich
blend of jazz standards, ballads, smooth soul and blues. It's
mostly standards but interwoven seamlessly are quality originals
in similar styles, some written specialy for Alice by her father.
Her repertoire also features quite a lot of "Rat Pack"
material which always seems to go down well at events. Influences
range from Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Diana Krall to
Dusty Springfield, Sade and Etta James.
Quality jazz-based popular music has received a welcome boost
recently through high-profile young girl singers like Norah Jones,
Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone. Soon we could be adding the name
Alice Harvey to that list.
