Alice Skye is an Aboriginal Australian singer/songwriter originally from Horsham, Victoria and now based in Melbourne. In her hometown she started piano lessons at the age of 5, and her love for music grew from there. With influences such as Missy Higgins, Regina Spektor and Joan Armatrading, the pairing of vocals and piano has become her inspiration and focus.
Other influences growing up included Laura Marling, Feist and Ben Folds. Being the youngest of two much older sisters, Alice developed a huge love for singers and songwriters of the 90s, in particular The Cranberries, The Breeders and No Doubt. Along with her passion for music, Alice is a Wildlife and Conservation Biology student at La Trobe University. She’s aiming to combine her love for both animals and music whilst living in Melbourne.
Since the beginning of 2015 Alice has had two tracks playing on the Triple J Unearthed platform, one of which has been chosen to featured on Triple J’s ‘Far out’ segment. She was one of 8 winners of the Alukura Songwriting Competition, chosen to record at the CAAMA Music studios in Alice Springs, while being mentored by the Stiff Gins.
