Part of In the Round, our series of unique all-seated, intimate performances.

Alice Russell has one of the UK’s finest soul voices and so it’s little wonder that she has won accolades from such a diverse range of people as Gilles Peterson, David Byrne, Dennis Coffey, Massive Attack’s Daddy G and Lauren Laverne. She has also won over a whole host of producers – lending her strong, emotional tones to releases by Mr Scruff, Quantic, DJ Yoda and Nostalgia 77; the latter pairing producing the Seven Nation Army cover that demolished clubs for years. But following her first release, Under The Munka Moon, it’s her records with long-time producer and bandleader TM Juke that she’s best known. From their debut album My Favourite Letters through to To Dust, they have made some of the most arresting blues soul since the glory days of Aretha. Russell is an entrancing presence whether on a big stage with her 16-piece band or in an intimate club with a stripped down six-piece band. She is currently working on a new album set for release in 2020.

Alice Russell is a singer who commands attention and for In the Round she will be showcasing her new album for the first time – music she conceived to be performed in this very set up.

One of the greatest voices we have in this country.
