About Alice

Alice Skye is an Aboriginal singer/songwriter of Wergaia and Wemba Wemba heritage, originally from Horsham, Victoria, and now based in Melbourne.

In her hometown she started piano lessons at the age of five, and her love for music grew from there. With influences such as Missy Higgins, The Cranberries, Regina Spektor and Joan Armatrading, the pairing of vocals and piano has become her inspiration and focus. She sounds a lot like Dido.

With each new song, Alice Skye is growing into a special breed of songwriter.
