HLR is very excited to be able to announce that the next in the ‘HLR Presents’ series of events will be, in association with the Singing Windmill Steampunk Society and The Pavilion, Heckington, ‘An Audience with Alice’, an evening of music and conversation with the very splendid Alice Strange.

Alice Strange is an incredible recording artist and live performer and we are delighted, once again, to be able to bring an artist of her calibre to Heckington.

This will be our fourth event in the series (following gigs by The Inheritors, Alex Hamilton and Sharp Class) and this one is going to be special. As well as performing songs from her amazing albums, Alice will talk about her work, in conversation with you, the audience. Providing, of course, you’re there! Tickets details will follow shortly so put the date in your diary and watch this space!

“Blessed with the natural stage presence of Siouxsie Sioux, the vocal command of Björk and the dark phrasing of Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, [Alice] is a rare and singular talent.” – LOUDERTHANWAR

Formerly Alice’s Night Circus, Alice Strange is classically trained and started her journey in classical music before venturing into her own style of music which encompasses influences from a wide range of musical genres and literature. She now performs her own original songs.

Alice started singing professionally in her late teens whilst running her own business as a designer of fashion and jewellery. It was however following a meeting with Eliot Kennedy – Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer – that she ventured into Steelwork Studios to ‘find’ her own sound through the writing of her own songs.

Alice released her first album called Metamorphose, it was a curious journey down a musical rabbit hole, featuring a blend of apocalyptic fairy-tale Steampop with a touch of the circus but discovered along the way that there were more sounds and styles she wanted to explore and to allow a broader thematic scope changed her name to Alice Strange.

“From day one I realised we were working with a real artist in [Alice]. Not only a designer of fashion and jewellery but also a real visionary regarding her music. It was a fab project to be a part of and I am really proud of what we have done together. I wish every success possible!!!” – Eliot Kennedy – Songwriter / Producer

Alice has had M.E./Fibro since the age of 17 and the life experiences this has brought her have strongly influenced her music, which concentrates on the positive outcomes that can be achieved by overcoming a range of lifes difficulties.

She is a very popular artist within the Steampunk community and is also developing her fan base into the greater population, having performed at Fantasy Forest, Zandari Festa Music Festival in Seoul, South Korea, Liverpool Sound City, Lincoln Engine Shed, Lincoln Castle and Whitby Pavilion.
