MP3 of the Day: Alice Russell

Categories: MP3 of the Day


I'm not sure what they're feeding those UK young women to get those gospel pipes up to such great heights. The latest of the pasty ladies with hearts full of soul is Alice Russell, a Brighton resident who worked her way up the church choir and intro recording/performing with the likes of Massive Attack, The Roots, Lonnie Liston Smith, Femi Kuti, De La Soul, Quantic, and The Quantic Soul Orchestra. She's also released records under her own name, the latest of which, Pot of Gold, is a bluesy, jazzy combo with Russell's Broadway-ready pipes in the spotlight. Her booming voice will bounce off the walls of the Independent on Monday, Nov. 10, but you can get a taste of the Gold with "Got The Hunger" here. -- Jennifer Maerz
