Spotlight: Alice Merton
May 10, 2018 • 8:00 pm(All times are in PDT)
In the middle of her worldwide tour, the GRAMMY Museum welcomes pop singer/songwriter Alice Merton to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation and performance, hosted by Museum Executive Director Scott Goldman. Her single “No Roots” has already captured an immense amount of attention with millions of global plays on Spotify and YouTube, top positions on iTunes, Shazam, and Hype Machine, and a platinum status in Germany, having been No. 2 on the official single charts. Raised in Canada, finishing high school in Germany, then moving on to England with her family, Merton has gotten quite used to packing and unpacking boxes. With her debut single “No Roots,” she describes the life of having had many different homes, but comes to the realization that her home was never in one place. Creating a very analog and organic pop sound, Merton has worked with producer Nicolas Rebscher, combining individual styles to develop a style of their own, while maintaining her own creative freedom as an independent artist under her own record label.
