Alicia McGovern is a songstress, a traveler, a teller of tales, and a compelling performer.
With her love of words and her experiences of travel, her songs carry themes of impermanence and simplicity that touch the universal spot where pain and joy meet and reconcile.
Combine that with her whimsically sweet, yet emotionally edgy vocals, and you get sounds and moods reminiscent of the Be Good Tanyas and Jolie Holland.
On stage, she delivers her songs with calming ease, drawing you in with her intricate guitar playing and unassuming nature.
Above all, her lyrics take the driver's seat delivering emotions and images that will linger in your mind and heart, quenching a deep thirst you might not know you had and leaving you wanting more.
In the words of renowned songwriter Steve Seskin, Alicia's music is "Passionate, poignant poetry combined with beautiful melodies sung with a great sense of what she's singing about. Alicia McGovern doesn't just write songs and sing them, she feels them deeply and when you listen to her, you can't help but do the same."
