Album Review

Alice Smith has the voice of a soul singer: a four-octave range and remarkable control, versatility, and emotion. And yet, or maybe because of this, her songs hardly fall into the soul, or even neo-soul, category. Instead, they circle from rock to blues to pop to R&B to jazz, never settling fully into one before a new chord, a new phrase, or a new verse will change the feel completely. "Woodstock," for example, starts off with a soft organ and an India.Arie-esque guitar, then switches a funk groove for the chorus, then segues to the verse with the band quoting "Blister in the Sun," and yet somehow still works really, really well. In fact, the music and the production on all of For Lovers, Dreamers & Me are fantastic, intricate, and layered while still retaining individual instrumental subtleties (the plucked strings on "Fake Is the New Real," the forlorn trumpet in the chorus of "Desert Song"), adding the right amount of whimsy, ingenuity, passion, and technique to accent Smith's voice perfectly. Because it is her voice that makes her debut so compelling and fantastic. It's commanding, almost explosive in "New Religion"; it moves around in its lower register with grace and agility on "Love Endeavor"; it's sultry and sad in "Do I," suspended over high notes and sunk calmly around the bass as if it doesn't even notice where it is, what it's been doing. Yet clearly it's focused, and its movements are anything but arbitrary. Smith is more than aware of the power she houses in her chest and throat, and when long smooth tones don't do quite enough to convey the sadness or anger or passion or regret in her lyrics, she isn't afraid to spit or growl or slur if that's what it takes to get her point across. And so while overall For Lovers, Dreamers & Me may be positive and confident and even sentimental at times, there's the everyday human struggle, the pain of love, the falsity in contemporary society, within it as well. That added introspection makes it more than just a warm, thoughtful album; it also gives it an element of timelessness. It's an excellent record, from the harmonies to the instrumentation to the changes in dynamics and everything in between, an impressive debut from an impressive and talented musician.

Customer Reviews

"If we start the ball to rollin' will it stop??" No, it keeps on goin'!!

I was turned on to Alice's release by the inclusion of her song "Dream" in Episode 49 of HBO's series "Entourage." Once hearing that song, I knew I had to have it. So I bought the whole album, and there was absolutely no disappointment! She reminds me a lot of Alana Davis in that her voice has a bit of huskiness, and weight, but remaining at all times feminine. Her lyrics are engaging as well as catchy, and the instrumentation is awesome. This is great music! Nothing but 5-star cuts are on this gem. Alice's strongest efforts are "Dreams" -- obviously -- "Gary Song" (the sleeper!!), "Do It," "Desert Song," and "Fake Is The New Real."

Alice rocks it!

if you're into female vocalists who really push themselves to find their 'sweet spot' - then ALICE SMITH is a must. Its funky and bluezy and sexy all wrapped into a hot chick. I recommend many singles on the album including Desert Song, Dream, Secrets, Woodstock - but the entire album is a full on chill. Enjoy!

See her LIVE

To hear Alice's album is amazing. To see her LIVE is an EXPERIENCE. Download her, get familiar with the music, and then see what she does with it live. She will BLOW YOU AWAY! I've been listening to her album for months and cannot get enough.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Growing up between Washington, D.C., and a farm in Georgia, Alice Smith spent much of her time listening to and singing many different genres of music, but it wasn't until her college years that she actually began to consider the possibility that her voice could be her career. Singing backup for a band at Fordham University, Smith was in the studio one day when the manager (and head of BBE Records in the U.S.) heard them perform. A record deal followed shortly and Smith released her impressive debut,...
