Liza Jean's desire to be on stage started at a young age after first hearing mainstream pop on the radio in the late 90s. While the genre's changed over the years, the desire didn't. She has been singing since she was a child, and took up various instruments throughout her life including piano, flute, and saxophone. She sings in an alto-mezzo range. Her influences as a musician include bands like Icon for Hire, Amaranthe, The Pretty Reckless, and Halestorm.
She joined Alice Sweet Alice officially in May 2017, and is incredibly excited to be working with such an amazing and talented group of people.
Guitar - Bass - Vocals
Scott was attracted to music at an early age. One of his earliest memories is hooking up a stereo in his bedroom and learning the words to songs on the radio. Coming from a family of musicians, and seeing somebody play guitar around a campfire when he was very young, that instrument is what first captured his imagination. Talking his parents into getting him a guitar, Scott took lessons for a short time, and then moved to bass in high school, playing with punk bands in the area. His 80's band released an album on vinyl when he was 19, and that started his interest in studio recording and performing. After playing bass for most of his career, and for the first decade of Alice Sweet Alice, Scott has now switched to guitar - which was his first love.
