In 2016, 23-year old artist/producer Alice Ivy released a pair of singles, the cinematic “Touch” and soul- soaked “Almost Here” which collectively amassed 900,000 plays on Spotify and saw the Melbourne-based beat-maker draw comparisons to fellow sample-fiends and one of her greatest influences, The Avalanches.
Alice Ivy’s musical output was compounded by near constant touring numbering more than forty shows by year’s end having completed two Australian headline tours, maiden dates in the USA and Singapore and a slew of summer festivals. Her September showcase at BIGSOUND in Brisbane was widely reported as one of the best of the conference by triple j, Purple Sneakers and The Herald Sun.
