Alice DiMicele and her band “Force of Nature” celebrate the release of Alice’s new album “One With the Tide.” Force of Nature features Alice’s longtime bassist Rob Kohler and drummer Nick Kirby.
Alice DiMicele is a singer/songwriter and acoustic guitar player that seamlessly works jazz/blues phrasing and R&B and rock & roll rhythms into a broadened Folk/Roots/Americana sound she calls “Organic Acoustic Groove.” Whether playing solo or with her band, Alice brings her wide-ranging vocal prowess, humor, and distinctive guitar style to festival stages, theaters, clubs, and house concerts.
For over 30 years Alice has been a grassroots trailblazer in independent music. Bucking the advances of record labels early in her career–she has self-released 14 albums on her Alice Otter Music label including 2018’s “One With the Tide”. DiMicele has stayed true to herself and her mission: to create music that connects people and inspires them to take a stand for the earth and for justice in the world. Born and raised in New Jersey, and firmly transplanted since 1986 in the fertile Southern Oregon soil, DiMicele’s music encompasses both city savvy and country innocence.
Alice has played at many festivals including Strawberry Music Festival, Kate Wolf Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festivals, Oregon Country Fair, Northwest String Summit and many, many more. She’s shared stages with some of music’s finest including some of her musical heroes like Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, JJ Cale, David Grisman Quintet, Steve Winwood, Ferron, Peter Rowan, Richie Havens, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and the list goes on. Bonnie Raitt said, “Alice’s music has that great combination of earthiness and groove that keeps it funky from the inside out. She’s for real.”
