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 the lead singer Alice Edwards. Each song is taut with feeling and longing, with many inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare.
With a sold out debut EP launch, their first offering, “Ground Opening” produced by Tom Donovan, was met with excitement and critical acclaim, its opening track being played on BBC South Today and with support by BBC Introducing.
