When we ask Alice for her three all-time favourite songs that she would like to have written herself, she mentions simple and melancholic If I Needed You (Townes van Zandt), Videotape (Radiohead), and If You See Her Say Hello (Bob Dylan). "Those three are wonderful, just such great songs," as she puts it.
Such artists also inspire Alice when she's creating new music:
"I often get an urge to write and sing, when I have seen or heard or read something that has touched me. Sometimes, when in the middle of watching a movie or reading a book, I have to stop and go grab a pen and paper and find something to play on.
And also when travelling. There's something about being on the road, being in between places that makes me want to write. Great songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and the like inspire me. Or simply good songs. Music that feels real always gets through.
She also has a very positive view of today's digital music – streaming services, social media, YouTube.
"I think it's great how people are able to reach out to so many more people now. Or, at least it makes it easier to do so. But then, there is also so much out there, that it sometimes feels overwhelming."
