Soul Sundays: Alice Russell

Some contemporary soul this week coming courtesy of the U.K.'s Alice Russell. With some collaborations being released in the early 2000's before she started releasing her own albums, Alice has definitely put in her time on the circuit and with her newest release, To Dust, starting to make some noise on this side of the Atlantic this is as good as time as any to introduce her. I've included an acapella version of Heartbreaker Pt.2 from To Dust, along with a live version of Lights Went Out from her 2008 album Pot Of Gold. She, as many many soul singers are, seems to be a big fan of covers too, so I'll throw in a great version of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy as well. Happy Sunday!
