Hey, I’m Alice Ivy.
I’m an electronic producer based in Brunswick, Melbourne.
[Vision: Alice working - sound equipment]
I make soul electronic music and now I’m sort of switching to more of an electronic pop vibe.
[Vision: Alice at computer keyboard]
I guess I’m really lucky to be able to be doing this full-time now.
[Vision: Alice performing to large audience - Alice speaking - lights]
I started playing in a 25-piece all-girl soul band, and so we covered Motown covers.
We got to tour Europe a couple of times, and tour Australia and that sort of gave me a really good intro.
[Vision: Alice Ivy signage - Alice performing]
So I just started chipping away at it.
[Vision: Alice performing to large audience - Alice speaking]
So the Music Works Grant funded my trip to Canadian Music Week last year, and honestly, like, it opened up so many doors for me.
[Vision: Alice at keyboard - lobster - Alice at keyboard]
To be able to get that support grants to be able to record a record, tour, especially overseas, it’s so important, especially for those up and coming artists who don’t have the financial situation to be able to pay for it.
[Vision: Alice performing - Alice speaking]
This year is sort of a year for me to work on some new material, and the other side of this year I release my debut record.
[Vision: Alice performing]
So I guess it’s all sort of just like building up.
Yeah, I’m super excited.
It’s going to be a big year.
