Penning her first EPs while sitting by her grandparents old piano, with nothing but a handheld voice recorder to hand, Alice’s first two releases – 2013’s Skisser EP and 2014’s EP II – were a document of her innermost emotions, pieced together in the sanctum of her teenage home.
The tastemaker music press immediately latched onto those honest, barebones depictions of emotional fragility, with features in The Fader, The Guardian, NPR, Entertainment Weekly and radio support from KEXP and 6 Music helping spread the word. Before long, Alice Boman’s delicate bedroom compositions captured hearts and minds across the globe, with those early EPs backed by a packed touring schedule of over 120 shows (including Green Man, Visions and End Of The Road festivals, and tours of the US and Europe) giving the intimate appeal of those first musical forays an exponentially bigger scope.
All the while, Alice retained that delicate authenticity which first captured the attention of her early supporters. Prominent television features on shows including Transparent, Suits, Being Human and Catfish, and feature film inclusion on Paper Towns only furthered the reach of those first two EPs.
