Carefree, charming and emotionally astute, Alice Skye is one of Australia’s brightest stars. A proud Wergaia / Wemba Wemba woman, her private bedroom scribbles on love, loss and life have become some of the greatest Australian pop ballads of the last seven years.
Blessed with a modern sound that takes its cues from ‘90s indie, Skye writes songs that could warm even the coldest of hearts. Just ask the likes of Moby, Midnight Oil, The Avalanches and Phoebe Bridgers, all unofficial members of a ragtag Alice Skye fan club.
Skye dug deeper on her 2021 follow-up album, I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good, laced with songs of chasing away anxieties, making peace with the past and fighting towards the light. The album closes powerfully with ‘Wurega Djalin’, which Skye sings in her people’s language of Wergaia.
Following rave reviews for her I Feel Better But I Don’t Feel Good headline tour and support slots with Courtney Barnett, this is a rare chance to experience Alice Skye in the retro intimacy of The Weary Traveller.
"Dazzlingly therapeutic, and an exquisite lesson in leaving one’s most tender spot laid bare"
