Album Notes
Alice Wallace has been writing songs and playing music since she was 16. But now, she's playing for real.
Her debut album, "Sweet Madness," was recorded at The Compound Studio in Long Beach, Calif., in July of 2011, and was co-produced by The Compound’s owner and manager, Anthony Arvizu. Arvizu and Alice met through mutual musical friends, and after a couple of short recording and brainstorming sessions they decided to go forward with recording the entire album.
“I was immediately impressed by her singing and I felt that I could help her with the production of her songs.” Arvizu says.
Alice had hardly more than a few hours’ worth of studio recording experience under her belt when she showed up at The Compound, so Arvizu’s experience behind the board helped her refine the songs for the album. Arvizu has worked with a long list of Orange County and Los Angeles bands, as well as national acts like Sublime, the Mars Volta and Ryan Bingham.
With a style that falls somewhere between the alt-country crooning of Emmylou Harris and the bluesy timbre of Bonnie Raitt, Alice draws from simple and honest folk melodies she learned from her father growing up when crafting her songs about life, love and the pursuit of that ever-elusive happiness.
After moving to the Los Angeles area three years ago from her lifelong home in Florida, Alice threw herself into the performing circuit - steadily attracting larger audiences and landing opening spots with well-known artists like Lisa Loeb, Shawn Mullins, Sophie B. Hawkins and Shawn Colvin.
She raised the last bit of money she needed to record this album with help from friends and fans across the country, and Alice’s wide-ranging influences are evident on the finished product – a bit of rock, a bit of jazz, a bit of pop, but always folk at heart.
Though most of the songs on the album were written within the past couple of years, tracks "Baby I Do" and "That Was Me" have been in Alice's repertoire for years. And since she has closed nearly every show for the past several years with a song about teaching herself to yodel in college, she couldn't make an album without a little yodeling to wrap it up.
