ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Her voice is beautiful as a bell, classic in that Joan Baez way, transporting, wistful…her vocal mastery and musicality are beyond her young years and her songs stay in my head for days.”
-- Antje Duvekot

"How can a singer-songwriter have a voice like a broken angel's bell and write songs that could be a week or a hundred years old all at once? Alice Howe, that's how. I'm proud to know her now, because I think big things are going to happen with this lady."
-- Vance Gilbert

“The future is bright for singer/songwriter Alice Howe! Her songwriting is STRONG and getting stronger. Her voice is as gentle as a spring rain with a hidden power that will surprise you. I am a BELIEVER!”
--Joltin Joe Pszonek, Radio Nowhere Newton, NJ

At once timeless and original, Boston singer-songwriter Alice Howe joins a soulful, impeccably tuned voice with crafted poetry in her new EP, You've Been Away So Long. Tracing the New England native's years in the Pacific Northwest, You've Been Away So Long is a cross-country journey through the matters of the heart. Recorded in Seattle, WA with an emphasis on crystal-clear vocals, Alice's new EP features five original songs accented by the lush additions of multi-instrumentalist Jeff Fielder on electric guitar, dobro, and a sweet 1920 Gibson L-1 archtop.

A lifelong songwriter, Alice's musical sensibility lies in '60s folk and '70s Southern California songwriters, with comparisons drawn to the pure, distilled sounds of Joni Mitchell and Kate Wolf. As a performer, Alice is sure-footed and captivating, familiar to her audience from the very first song.
