Alice Merton — singer and songwriter

Alice Merton was born on 13 September 1993 in Frankfurt, Germany. Her mother is German. Her father is Irish. The nature of her father’s work forced Merton’s family to move around a lot. When she was just 3 months old, Alice moved to Connecticut. Soon they relocated to Canada. The girl’s native language was English. She started studying German upon returning to her native country in 2006. Before turning 18, Alice managed to live in Oakville, New York, Bournemouth, London, Berlin, and many other places.

Merton graduated from high school in Germany. In 2013, she was accepted to University of Popular Music And Music Business. While studying, Alice met young musicians, who later became members of her band. Alice earned a bachelor degree in Songwriting.

In February 2015, a German duo Fahrenhaidt, which consisted of Erik Macholl and Andreas John, presented its debut album The Book of Nature. All the songs, featured in the LP, were performed by different artists, among which was Alice. The critics gave her great reviews. In 2016, she earned Acoustic Pop prize at the German Young Talents Award in Hamburg.

Soon Alice moved to Berlin and established her own recording studio, which she called Paper Plane Records International. There she recorded her debut single, "No Roots". Later Alice said that the title of the song was inspired by her own life, which was full of moves. When she was young, Alice had trouble identifying where she was from and where her home was. In 24 years, she moved 12 times.

The co-author of the debut single was Nicolas Rebscher. The song came out under Paper Plane Records in December 2016. “No Roots” became a huge hit in Europe. Alice woke up famous. Her song topped the French charts, came in second in Germany, third in Austria, fourth in Russia, Ukraine, and Israel. It also charted at top-10 of many other countries.

In February 2017, the single was released in the USA under the Mom + Pop Music label. At about the same time Alice recorded an EP with the same name. Merton’s work became popular in the USA and Canada as well. It reached the 5th spot on US Hot Rock Songs and the 84th place on Billboard Hot 100. In Canada, it climbed to the 97th position of Canadian Hot 100 and the 3rd place on Canada Rock. The song was also a hit in Mexico, where it charted at number 43 on Mexico Airplay.

In August 2017, Mike Jones from the FM radio station WWDC promised Alice unbelievable success. He turned out to be right. Only half a year after its release in the USA, “No Roots” was downloaded over a million times. Many organizers tried to book Alice Merton for their events on both sides of Atlantic Ocean.

Vodafone Germany used the song in one of its ads, which made it even more popular in the singer’s native country. Eventually, the single earned platinum certifications in Austria, Germany, and France. Alice started touring the world.

In August 2017, Merton presented her second single "Hit the Ground Running". Unlike the first song, it didn’t make it into the charts. Her third single “Lash Out” came out in 2018 and reached the 25th spot on US Alternative Songs Chart.

The fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the artist’s debut album.
