Alice and the 11's is an all original all female alt pop band from Austin TX.
First, there’s Alice’s voice. It moves like a sax - malleable, seductive, soaring and growling with grace and grit. Then there are her thoughtfully crafted heart-on-sleeve hooks and lyrics framed in catchy hummable melodies. Add the alchemy of 4 women - their collective influences and inspiration creating a bedrock of layers and textures.
Voice, keys, bass, drums, guitar, and songs that won’t let you go.
The 11’s are at home in venues of all kinds – clubs, theatres, outdoor festivals, and as a support act. 11’s fans are millennials to boomers, hipsters, fellow musicians, dj’s.
