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 utmost feeling and longing with many inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare.
The People Versus formed of Alice Edwards (lead vocals), Jack Wilkinson (guitar + vo- cals), Ben Crone (Cello), Danny Evans (Keys), Cathy Ife (Bass) and Owen Stepney (Drums) have been quickly recognised as one of the most exciting talents coming out of the Folk Music scene in Oxford, UK with one journalist describing their music as “haunting folk fairytales powered by sheer pop euphoria.”
Filling large tents at Greenbelt Festival and Lakefest, completing runs of indoor venues and festivals, The People Versus have been welcomed by enthusiastic audiences across the UK.
