Sian Alice Group

This London-based, five-person group brings their orchestral sound to the WNYC Studio. Their range—from intense to lyrical—is revealed gradually as each song unfolds, offers new possibilities, and points in new directions. Along with vocalist Sian Alice Ahern are drums, electric guitar, violin, piano, bass, and more. The band talks with host David Garland, and performs songs ranging from full ensemble at full-throttle, to the intimacy of just voice and piano.

Well that was an enjoyable way to spend an hour.
First heard Sian Alice at a festival (at the end of Brighton Pier bizarrely!) and they were the stand out of 3 days hard living and 30 bands hard listening. Countours and Way Down In Heaven (played here) are the highlights live. Recommend checking them out - one of the most interesting sounds out there at the moment.

My daughter - Sian Ahern - and her group, did a show with David Garland recently. Just wanted to say what a relaxed and interesting session it was...their playing and singing and David's sensitive and insightful interview...the photos were great too !
Thank you
