Alice Phoebe Lou
Alice Phoebe Lou (born on July 19, 1993) is a South African singer-songwriter with a penchant for pop hooks and otherworldly atmospherics. A self-taught musician, she started her career busking in parks and subway stations in Berlin. Her first EP, Momentum, came out in 2014, followed by the live album Live at Grüner Salon. Even though she received offers from different record labels, Phoebe Lou decided to stay independent. She self-funded and released Orbit, her debut album, in 2016. The LP won her a nomination for Best Female Artist at the German Critics’ Choice Awards and several invitations to play in TV programs. In 2017, “She,” her contribution to the movie Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story was nominated for Best Original Song at the Oscars. After touring extensively throughout Europe, South Africa, and the US, she released Paper Castles (2019). The album spawned three singles (“Skin Crawl,” “Galaxies,” and “Lost in LA”) and was featured in several ‘Best Of’ lists that year. Live at Funkhaus, a ten-track live album, was released in 2020, along with the solo single “Witches” and “Honey Thighs,” by Strongboi, Phoebe Lou’s side project with musician Ziv Yamin.
