Formed in 2019, The People Versus borrow from a variety of genres and traditions. Their combined voices and instrumental lines swoop, circle and support the beguiling voice and personality of lead singer, Alice Edwards. Each song is taut with feeling and longing, with many inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare.
Their first recordings received support from BBC South Today Live News as well as BBC Introducing Oxford and Shropshire. Followed by two new singles in 2021, Witch and Calypso have earned placements at international film festivals, BBC Radio airplay, and an 'Artist of the Week' feature in Richer Sounds.
2021 saw The People Versus perform all over the UK in a headline tour, as well as some additional dates internationally in Denmark supporting Northern Assembly.
