Review of Alice Bentley on the Potting Shed at Belladrum, 8th of August, 2014.
Delighted to catch Alice alive and well and in particularly fine voice at the Potting Shed on Friday.
She never fails to impress with her exceptionally well judged covers (Pumped Up Kicks is Alice’s now as far as I’m concerned) and her own material matures particularly well and just gets stronger with each outing.
Well observed vignettes that comprise of a truly engaging mix of delicacy, awkwardness, heart and soul; Alice brings an unashamedly poetic voice to the Potting Shed.
Great news – Alice is working hard with an EP on the not too distant horizon, followed by more hard work and, there was talk of drums. Drums I tell you, make of that what you will.
