Alice Auer is a vocalist persuing her dream of music in London. Working closely with musicians to produce original material in a Jazz, Soul and Pop style.
Alice began her musical studies after gaining a music scholarship to St Bede’s where she was tutored by composer and performer Andrew Barclay. She participated in a music exchange to USA to perform with the Sussex Youth Orchestra, New Jersey. Whilst studying at Bede’s, Alice also started performing in her first band, ‘Fred’s Tattoo’. Whilst in the band they competed successfully in Rock Competitions, held fundraising events and appeared at local rock festivals.
Alongside her studies Alice was also a member of a Performing Arts School - Mad Fish where she studied under talented vocalist and director Emma Burnett (formally a member of D’Oyly Carte). Whilst studying with Mad Fish Alice competed successfully with many wins at Musical Festivals as a soloist, duet and in groups. In her final years at Mad Fish Alice performed as Cosette in a sold out production of Les Miserables.
After school Alice gained an unconditional offer to the London College of Music to study Music Performance. She was immediately intrigued by the jazz course and the dedicated teaching style from Pete Cook, and decided to focus her performance attention to jazz. She began lessons with top UK jazz singer Iain Mackenzie, and found her suited performance styles and gained a vast repertoire selection. Throughout her time at the London College of Music Alice was given some amazing performance opportunities including performing with the jazz vocal ensemble as support for legendary saxophonist Courtney Pine.
Upon graduating Alice was given the most exciting opportunity so far in her career, a chance to perform at the Ealing Jazz Festival. She performed on the Main Stage along artists such as Roy Ayers, Yolanda Brown and Vasilis Xenopoulos. Alice is currently working on original material with her band and is excited to perform it and record her EP in the new year.
