Spotlight On: Alice Nicholls

Alice Nicholls is a young singer-songwriter from Leeds, England, who contacted us recently and shared with us her most recent album Kind Quiet Riots, a 6-song EP of protest music.

The album’s title is perfect as Alice takes us on a quiet journey of protest through her multi-instrumental, acoustic songs. From dramatic opening track Deluge to the ukulele performance Get Some Learning and the acoustic baritone driven, closing track Token, Alice guides us through political (and personal) topics on her mind trying to motivate thoughts of change to the listener.

Alice told me via email that she is working on new material although “the current pandemic has put a spanner in the works for everyone – but I am really proud of this collection of angry and topical songs.”
