Honest, melodic and warm, ALOÏSE is the stage name of Canberra singer-songwriter Amy Jenkins. Taking pride in her ability to cross genres, with pop, jazz, soul and folk influences, ALOÏSE is a storyteller at heart. A recent graduate from the ANU School of Music, this upcoming young singer released her debut single, 'Never Thing' in early January, which quickly gained momentum on Triple J unearthed, reaching #1 on the Indie charts and #2 overall. With more music to come, and an album in the works for late 2019, ALOÏSE is a fresh voice for the Australian music scene.
