The Alice Rose

The Alice Rose


"The Alice Rose, a quintet out of Austin, TX, channels influences like the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Big Star into a tasty new set of melodic rockers that are catchy without sounding derivative." - Amplifier Magazine


The Alice Rose was formed by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter JoDee Purkeypile, bassist and vocalist Sean Crooks, and drummer Chris Sensat in Austin, Texas in 2001. Colin Slagle (guitar), and Brendan Rogers (keys/backing vocals), joined the band in the fall of 2005, and the group debuted as a five-piece that December.

The Alice Rose recently finished their debut album, 'Phonographic Memory', at the Congress House Studio with producer Mark Hallman. They released the album on November 10th, 2006 with an in-store performance at Waterloo Records in their hometown of Austin. The following week the album debuted at #1 on the Waterloo Records "Shiner Top 10".

A recent review by National Public Radio said,"Think about hearing a classic tune by Squeeze for the first time, and it's easy to understand how special this Austin-based band is: Every song on its debut sounds both strangely familiar and utterly new."

The band recently completed a Midwest tour in April of 2007 in support of their new album. They also recently performed at the annual South by Southwest music festival held each year in Austin, Tx.
