Alice Kristiansen is 20 year-old NYC based singer/songwriter. Like many artists in today’s industry, Alice began her journey by posting videos of her singing on YouTube. Beginning her channel over five years ago, Alice currently has over a quarter of a million followers. Her soft and angelic voice is what easily draws people into her music. Her sound is warm and comforting and would sit well with fans of soft pop artists likeJames Bay, Taylor Swift, and Shawn Mendes.
Alice’s YouTube channel mainly consists of covers of pop or acoustic songs. She transforms these songs into personal acoustics played either on her piano or her guitar. Her cover of “Wildest Dreams” by Taylor Swift is her most popular video with over 3 million views and 50,000 likes. Alice’s take on the song gives it a sound reminiscent of Lana Del Rey. Since her success with “Wildest Dreams,” her fan-base has grown tremendously. Even Ashton Kutcher took a listen and shared it on his social media.
In addition to a huge collection of phenomenal covers, Alice is also currently working on her own original music. Her newest single, “Twilight Blue” holds a bit of different sound than fans are used to, but allows us to see another side of her talent. “Twilight Blue” has a more electronic and indie-pop vibe than the gentle guitar-accompaniment we’ve heard before. It’s a great change up and her voice sounds amazing with the new sound.
