Music Therapy: Alice Smith

I always like to search for new music. While browsing some music on Amazon.com a few years ago, I came across Alice Smith and decided to buy her album. I was taken aback (in a good way) by her eclectic sound- it's a blend of funk, rock, soul, and R&B.

Here's some info about Alice Smith:

She is a singer/ songwriter & producer based out of New York City. She was raised in Washington, D.C., and Augusta, GA.

Album(s): For Lovers, Dreamers, and Me (2006)

Collaborations: Sia Furler, Imani Coppola, and Aloe Blacc
She has performed with Black Rock Coalition and Tamar Kali.


Her song "Dream" was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2007 and was featured in one of the episodes of Entourage (Season 4), and The L Word (Season 5- "Let's Get This Party Started").

She has worked on and recorded new tracks for her sophomore album. Yet due to changes with her now former record label- Epic Records, the album was pushed back and not released. In the mean time she has continued to perform for her fans.



Recently, I replayed her album on my playlist, and "Do I" really stood out. The song is slow, so soothing and deep. It puts you in a reflective mood- at least for me.
