"As a songwriter, Limoges brings to mind something akin to a softer-edged Fiona Apple, or a harder-edged Sarah McLachlan — awfully, awfully pretty, but with a flair for the dramatic that creeps in on nearly every track." - Bangor Daily News
Born and raised on a mountain by the sea in coastal Maine, Alice Limoges was singing before she could walk. After spending 7 years working in the New York City music scene, the coronavirus pandemic guided her back to Maine in 2020. With a voice reminiscent of a young Fiona Apple, Alice possesses a powerful, strong voice with the heart and soul of a classic folk troubadour.
Whether singing poetic songs about returning to Maine and finding love, or shining a light on mental health, Alice's songs are lit up by her unique and soulful voice. Alice is a storyteller and can easily draw the crowd in with her honesty as she plays her original music. At the same time, Alice can comfortably build a warm ambience with her jazz duo partner, Bill Barnes, as they share Alice's original songs, jazz standards, and more.
Alice has released four independent albums to date. Her song "No One Underneath” was a semi-finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition. She played on the Grammy Award winning album "Ageless: Songs For The Child Archetype" by Jon Samson.
She has performed extensively across NYC and the northeast, including festivals (Make Music Harlem, NYC; The Campfire Festival, Cambridge, MA), colleges (Columbia University, Hamilton College, SUNY New Paltz), and other legendary venues such as The Cutting Room (NYC), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), Club Passim (Boston), and Blue (Portland, ME) as well as countless intimate concerts with Sofar Sounds.
