Alice Auer is a British singer-songwriter from Battle, near Hastings, who takes inspiration from artists rooted in jazz and soul music including Chet Baker, Nat King Cole and Moonchild’s Amber Navran. Having appeared on the Glastonbury 2020 Emerging Talent Competition longlist and received support from PRS for Music following the release of her debut single in October 2019, it was Alice’s collaboration with Conor Albert on the recent ‘Smile EP’ that established her as one of the most exciting new voices on the UK contemporary R&B and Soul scene. The EP which has been streamed over 2 million times since its release, saw extensive support from Spotify (4x New Music Friday UKs, Our Generation, Jazz UK, Riffs & Runs, Sweet Soul Sunday) BBC Radio 1 (Jack Saunders’ Future Artists, Sian Elery’s ‘The Chillest Show’) and BBC Radio 2 (Jamie Cullum) as well as key tastemaker press including The Independent, The Line Of Best Fit, CLASH Magazine and Vogue Paris. Alice and Conor’s cover of the jazz classic ‘Crazy He Calls Me’ was even championed by Justin Bieber in his Instagram Stories.
Alice Auer returned with ‘Turn Back Time’, the first single taken from her debut solo EP ‘Daydreaming’, released on Young Poet, in Autumn 2021.
