For this special show Alice is teaming up with another wonderful Naarm based singer Kee'ahn thus offering up two extraordinary voices of contemporary Australia on the one night.

Since her first album Friends with Feelings, released on the CAAMA Label, Alice has signed with Bad Apples Music, the Indigenous-driven label, founded by Briggs, that celebrates and priorities' blak excellence. Alice's upcoming sophomore album I Feel Better but I Don't Feel Good was produced by local artist Jen Cloher. Her work continues to look inwards and explores finding staunchness in softness. Today, Alice further shapes a reputation for bringing forth unparalleled emotional exposure and introspective story-telling to her work, who's universality in substance continues to engage with far-reaching audiences. Despite Covid Alice has had a busy year. After cancelling her international schedule for 2020 Alice has released two acclaimed singles, Grand Ideas and most recently Stay In Bed. She has also taken part in the Kev Carmody/Paul Kelly collaboration of Cannot Buy My Soul for which she sang a cover of Blue You, a song which has always resonated strongly with her.
Kee'ahn is a proud Kuku Yalanji, Jirrbal, Zenadth Kes song woman who has recently ventured from her home town in North Queensland, to pursue her dream in the Kulin Nation (Melbourne, Australia). Kee'ahns rich vocals and hopeful lyrics champion the idea that finding strength in our struggles, encourages us to reflect, reinvent, and rejoice in all of our own individual healing journeys. The release of her debut single Better Things in May this year had music lovers sit up and take notice. The song has attracted over 450,000 spotify streams to date and has bagged her a swag of Awards including 2020 Winner Archie Roach Award, National Indigenous Music Awards (NIMAs), 2020 Finalist, New Talent of the Year (NIMAs), 2020 Finalist, Song of The Year (NIMAs), 2020 Winner Music Vic Awards 2020 for Best Emerging Artist.
