Audio Vision: Some Alice Smith Performances That I Have Never Ever Seen Before

Friday, January 14, 2011


It's been so long...like Anita Baker sang.

Now if these visuals have been seen before, forgive me, but I had no idea that Alice Smith did these very intimate performances back in the Spring of 2010 at a venue in Philly. I think at the time I was preoccupied with getting my rump out of college and not paying attention to Smith making a quiet little comeback. She's been doing so in small increments, as she unleashed the beast that was the song, "Fire" last year on the touring circuit.

On these visuals she's 'debuting' two new songs, "Moving Lights" and "Martha" from a new album called, The Last After---or so the YouTube description informs me. And as you would expect, both performances are well worth marinating in. Smith is a top-notch vocalist, which is why folks like myself clamored over her 2006 debut, For Lovers, Dreamers and Me. She just has a real great tone to her voice, it's gravely but also quite lush. From these it appears like Ms. Smith is working her way towards following up her debut, and I'm glad for that.

Is it just me or is she channeling the 80's Sade look here...you know with the earrings, stark red lips, blazer and a slicked back bun? Just me? Okay.

Have at it above and after the cut.
