Alicia Witt has played her piano-driven rock all over the world for the past 5 years, including opening for Ben Folds Five, John Fullbright and Jimmy Webb. She performed as musical guest on CBS' Late Show with Craig Ferguson and was featured as the cover story in Sound & Vision Magazine.
Also known for her decades-long career as a prolific TV/film actress (beginning in David Lynch's 'Dune' at the age of 7), her music has been featured in numerous movies including this year's 'I Do' and 'Pasadena', in which she also stars. The latter is a duet co-written/performed with Ben Folds for the end credit theme.
A classically trained former competitive pianist, Alicia's music has been described as 'sharply personal, boldly melodic pop originals in the Carole King/Billy Joel vein' and 'snappy, resilient, emancipated-woman anthems and touching lost-and-found love ballads' (Philadelphia Inquirer).
...what a voice. It comes from tender, intimate appeals, soaring to roof raising heights, as she all the while works the piano with ease and command...where Witt really excels is in her ballads, personal and universal poems of love, longing, and everyday girl issues. Her lyrics flow with a poetic polish, and her piano playing rivals that of rockers Billy Joel or Elton John. - What Duvet Said
... her mature and telling lyrics resonate with deep meaning and purpose... her probing words are intimate, candid, confessional' - Worcester Telegram
