Alice Russell‘s second solo album has been highly anticipated. Having slowly but surely built her reputation as one of the UK’s finest soul singers through her recordings with a number of artists and live appearances, she is now concentrating on her solo career.

My Favourite Letters” has been produced and co-written by TM Juke who has added his magic musical touch to Alice’s gifted vocals. The album could be described as a kaleidoscope of soul music history with influences from Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Northern Soul, Broken Beat, Electronica and Funk but a sound that connects the whole album.

Alice has featured as guest vocalist on music for The Quantic Soul Orchestra, Max Sedgeley, Nostalgia 77 and Bah Samba amongst others and has also performed live alongside Roy Ayires and supported Lonnie Liston Smith, Femi Kuti and De La Soul.

Alice and TM Juke have put together a band now so look out for dates at The Big Chill (on the main stage after Norman Jay and before Massive Attack DJs (as requested by Daddy G)) and throughout the UK in September and October.
