Channeling her inner soul diva a la Dusty Springfield, Alice Russell, with the help of long-time producer TM Juke, combines deep, emotional vocals with RnB-laced instrumentals and hip hop beats in her music. While her albums are incredible, she turns it out at live performances, freely improvising and sweeping the audience off their feet with her charms. Russell is completely at ease and in control of her talents, doling out a fiery rage in her powerful vocals in "Heartbreaker" to her cool, collected crooning in "Hurry On Now." Watch this lady sing the blues at The Glass House with Moonchild and Act As If.
