Alice Russell is an enthusiastic traveler. The Brighton, U.K.-based soul chanteuse toured relentlessly in 2007, darting around every pocket of the Europe and North America, and though we’re not even halfway through 2008, she is set to return to the road next week. For this handful of North American dates, she’ll be joined by her six-piece Alice Russell Live band, and with their help, show the rest of us how real singing (and crooning) is done.
