"For a long time I kept it all to myself, until I unexpectedly found songwriting being the way I could finally talk to others and myself honestly.”

Biography

Alise Joste is a young Latvian singer-songwriter who already has drawn big audiences to her festival and club performances.

Alise’s debut album was recorded mostly by herself during the hot summer of 2010 in a country house, with a little help from her brother. When asked about her music, Alise says: „As I consider myself as a pretty shy person, it's always been very hard for me to talk about the things that are happening to me, what I think or feel. For a long time I kept it all to myself, until I unexpectedly found songwriting being the way I could finally talk to others and myself honestly.”

Alise's first album was mixed by Krisjanis Geidans in Riga, Latvia, and mastered by Bjorn Hansell in Stockholm, Sweden. It was released in March 2011 under an independent Latvian record label "I Love You Records".

Lyrics

Angina

Written By: Alise Joste

I watch your face right before you turn to leave
And though I know it’s the last time we meet
There is nothing I could say to you

And if I fail to find my way back home
Could you be the one to show me which way should I go
To find a place where I belong

Ill-omened

Written By: Alise Joste

Could it be that we are waiting for something
That’s not even about to happen

And if we’re meant to fail I’ll stand and wait

Was it me that made you believe that we would go
So much further than we could

And now we stand and wait to see if we will really fail
And if we do, well it probably was meant to be this way

A Thousand Questions

Written By: Alise Joste

The sun cuts a shadow on the wall I’m passing by
But where does it go when the light and I am gone?

So this and thousand other questions are those which seem not to have the answers
And where am I supposed to look to find what I’ve been searching for

The stars up above they show me the way back home
But where do they go when the dawn is breaking?
