Bio

A distinctive voice and sincerity in songwriting, that is Alice Jago.
Emerging onto the Irish music scene with an eclectic mix that is truly
her own, Alice, effortlessly infuses songs with a beauty in movement,
colour and fluidity. Warrior, Dynamite In Gold and Shadow Dancin' are
instantly recognisable gems. She has stayed true to her unique left
handed guitar style, and with a voice that is sweetly pure, weaving
strong melodies, she captures and intrigues any listener.

This beautiful recipe has led to a staggering amount of gigs around
the Ireland, including opening slots for: Roger Mcguinn (Ex Byrds),
Miles Hunt (Wonderstuff) The Terry Woods band, The Frames, The Walls,
The 4 of Us, Kila, Pina, Turn, The Waifs, Aslan and Woodstar. Alice
has also been billed regularly alongside many of her contemporaries
including Mundy, Damien Dempsey, Declan O'Rourke, Ann Scott, Nina
Hynes, Colm Quearney, Grada, Jerry Fish and the Mudbug Club, David
Hopkins, Mark Geary, Paddy Casey, David Kitt, Damien Rice and Rosey.
Her own billings have included performances at the RDS Lisdoonvarna
festival and the HWCH festival in 2003.

Jago has honed her craft in many late night acoustic clubs country
wide, progressing to venues such as Whelan's, Vicar St., The Olympia
and the Sugar Club. Her influences are wide and varied, from folk to
jazz, country to bluegrass and pop, nothing is excluded. Her songs
involve truth, compassion and friendship, and a feeling that this
life is for living to the full.

Alice's talent has also been recognised by the seasoned professionals,
as they have taken the opportunity to employ her vocal abilities.
She appears as guest backing vocalist on the following releases:

Paddy Casey, Saints and Sinners Single: Track - Red Light
The Frames, Headlong E.P: Track - Listen Girl
Colm Quearney, Reckless Single: Track - Bright Star
Ann Scott, Poor Horse Album: Track - Jane Doll Sorrow

Her key strength is in her ability to make time transient and she
does so with melodies and a voice that can only be described as
somewhere between Emmylou Harris, Stina Nordenstam and
Joni Mitchell. It’s distinctive, pure and overwhelming.

She has now been working on her debut release, which sees
her working alongside Ger Kiely (Juliet Turner, Sharon Shannon)
Pat Donne (Paddy Casey , Damien Dempsey )and Karl Odlum
(Mic Christopher, The Frames, David Kitt, Mark Geary)
