The People Versus

“Haunting folk fairytales powered by sheer pop euphoria”

Formed in 2019, THE PEOPLE VERSUS borrow from a variety of genres and traditions. Their combined voices and instrumental lines swoop, circle and support the beguiling voice and personality of the lead singer Alice Edwards. Each song is taut with feeling and longing, with many inspired by Greek myth and tales from Shakespeare.

Their first recordings received support from BBC South Today Live News as well as BBC introducing Oxford and Shropshire. Followed by two new singles in 2021, Witch and Calypso have earned placements at international film festivals, BBC radio airplay and a feature as Richer Sounds artist of the week.

2021 saw The People Versus tour nationally with headline slots at Oxford O2, St Pancras Old Church, Leaf and the Hug and Pint. Not to be kept still they also toured internationally in Denmark supporting Northern Assembly, including a show at the Musikhuset Aarhus.


“Alice’s vocals are truly bewitching, The melody is transportive. A very strong debut.” –For Folk’s Sake

“A standing ovation from our audience, no mean feat.” –Sofar Sounds

“’The resulting sound is dreamy… it just pulls you in.” –BBC Oxford

“Like being sung to by an angel. An audio mug of hot chocolate.” –BBC Shropshire

Undisclosed costs I was disappointed that the full cost of the show wasn’t disclosed up front. I.E. the rider cost which I found excessive for such a small show. But the agent did sort it out for me. John Beverly Krakatoa Aberdeen

Amazing roster I've known Midnight Mango since the days when John Smith was an upcoming artist and their roster is now even more amazing and their professionalism is unmatched. Saw some amazing acts at Beautiful Days and Funke and the Two Tone Baby rocked the Bimble Inn with a bouncing crowd.
