It's been a gradual burning, shimmering process for the remarkable Alessi's Ark. A name and cinematic voice which has been built upon years of experimentation, travel, resilience and triumph. Alessi has since toured extensively in the UK, Europe, US and Japan in support of her releases with M.Ward, Jenny Lewis, Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten and John Grant, amongst others.
Her releases have won acclaim and support from Gary Crowley and Robert Elms at BBC London, Cerys Matthews and Steve Lamacq at BBC 6, Tom Robinson at BBC Introducing, John Kennedy at XFM, WFMU, DubLab, KEXP and previous LP 'Love Is The Currency' was warmly welcomed by MOJO, Guardian, Best Fit, Clash, The 405.
London-born songstress Alessi Laurent-Marke called herself Alessi's Ark to avoid any confusion with the Alessi Brothers. She started drumming at the age of 11, and left school at 16 to persue her passion for music. She has supported artists such as Laura Marling, Mariee Sioux, Emilíana Torrini and Cerys Matthews. She has a beautiful crooning voice, and produces tender, melodic folk-pop.
