Alice Smith headlines the Apollo Theater’s third Women of the World Festival with a evening length concert. The NYC-bred singer/songwriter/producer, known for her 4-octave vocal range and stunning stage presence, made a name for herself with her critically-acclaimed 2006 debut album, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me, released on BBE Records. At the time, her artful blend of bluesy, soulful vocals and mid-tempo grooves garnered a passionate following that packed venues like NYC’s Mercury Lounge and Joe’s Pub, while Vibe Magazine gushed that her sound “evoke[s] Fiona Apple’s finest material.” Her single “Dream” was nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Best Urban/Alternative category.
Opening the evening concert, Liv Warfield will focus on her She-Roes. In 2006, Liv’s self-released debut album Embrace Me, and in 2009 legendary performer Prince invited her to audition for his vocal backing group, the New Power Generation (NPG) In 2014, Liv recorded her sophomore album, The Unexpected, with Prince as the Executive Producer. Liv Warfield’s describes her style as “alternative R&B Soul with a little bit of Rock ‘n’ Roll” – a style which she has spent years cultivating.
