The Bearing

Alise Kirtley’s musical journey began at the age of six. A classically trained pianist and composer, she has written pieces for solo piano, choir and ensembles that have been performed across the UK, Europe and America. While working in the wilds of Utah as a white water river guide and helping to produce the Moab Music Festival, Alise’s love of music and the natural world began to coalesce. From now on her back country hikes would always include manuscript and pencil! The singer-songwriter was born. The Big Bang debut EP contains powerful messages and catchy pop hooks in equal measure. Alise is not afraid to experiment with complex time signatures and different genres, but always remains true to her pop sensibilities. When performing live, Alise and her band build upon the density of the studio productions to create a hugely engaging and uplifting sonic experience.
