Alice Phoebe Lou

Music / Singer-Songwriter, R'n'B/Soul / Berlin, Cape Town, Germany, South Africa

To attend this Elbphilharmonie concert, reservations must be made in advance.

Born and raised in South Africa, Alice Phoebe Lou took piano lessons as a child and taught herself to play guitar. As a headstrong youngster, she moved to Berlin after finishing school, where she took to parks and subway stations with her guitar and amp. She wasted no time and released her first EP Momentum within weeks. A few months later, she left such a big impression at TEDx Berlin that renowned labels inundated her with offers. But Lou stayed true to herself, cultivated her artistic freedom and trusted in the power of her angelic blues without letting herself become commercialized. And she was right. What followed were festival slots at SXSW and Primavera, sold-out shows, an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song – and then Lou bravely declined to open for James Blunt. Wherever she plays, she leaves audiences breathless with the sheer power of her indie, her independence, and her integrity.
