That seemingly casual share of her latest video by Ashton Kutcher on his Facebook page last year set off a firestorm for 20 year old, NYC based singer Alice Kristiansen.
Up until that point, Kristiansen had a relatively small but loyal following on social media. What followed were over 3 million views of that performance as well as over 26 million views on her channel.
In her latest release, “Twilight Blue”, Alice has strayed from the acoustic guitar and piano sounds she is known for; exploring electronic and cinematic elements within her brand of indie pop.
What has remained constant is her pure, angelic voice, that fans have come to love.
Alice, who was born in England before relocating to NYC as a child, is no stranger to music or show business. In fact you could say it runs in her blood. Her grandfather, Malcolm Vaughan, was a chart topping Welsh crooner and pop star in the 1950's.
Alice was first discovered by her manager, Mark D. Conklin, on YouTube at the age of 16 while posting cover songs. The two began working together almost immediately and released an album of mostly acoustic cover songs. Her slowed down and hauntingly sorrowful version of Katy Perry's "The One that Got Away" has landed on numerous Spotify playlists and has been streamed almost a million times.
After the "Ashton Kutcher incident" other notable musicians like James Bay and Shawn Mendes began reaching out to pay their compliments.
Even Hollywood came calling and Alice found herself up for the lead role in a major motion picture. In the end, Alice passed on the movie opportunity because she was focused on her music and her career as a recording artist.
Her first original single, "Moon and Back", released in February 2016, has been streamed over 550K times and the video has been watched nearly 240K times. Her latest music video for "Twilight Blue" has been viewed over 150K times and the song has been streamed over a quarter of a million times. Kristiansen plans on releasing her first original EP early in 2017.
