RELEASE DATE FEBRUARY 16 2024
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Alice Di Micele (DeeMissEllie) has released 16 albums of almost all original music since 1988. Born in New Jersey but firmly transplanted to Oregon in 1986, Alice has spent the last 35 years touring, singing, writing, playing, and learning. During the pandemic lockdown she started learning songs that she had always loved but had never had time to work on and arrange. This, her seventeenth album, Interpretations Vol 1 means to pay homage to writers and songs that have long inspired her. The collection includes songs by Neil Young, Kate Wolf, Reverend Gary Davis, Christine McVie, Tom Petty, Abbey Lincoln, the Grateful Dead and Sting.
This is a diverse collection of songs that reflects her love of varying styles of music.
“My first concert was the Grateful Dead in 1982. Two weeks later I saw David Grisman Quintet at Carnegie Hall. I came home that night and dug out my mom’s old guitar that had only 5 strings and called the guitarist of the band that I sang in and told him to teach me to play. I learned to tune the guitar to the dial tone and then Neil Young’s Sugar Mountain that night. Soon after, I found country blues listening to late night NYC radio. I love jazz and sometimes feel like a jazz singer in a folk singer’s body. I have spent most of my life writing songs but these influences run deep.”
“There is a reason that singer comes before songwriter and singing these songs reminds me that although I strive for originality, my music has been influenced by a long legacy of incredible writers and singers. I am but a small link in a long chain of music.”
