The Future Heavies
Alice-Anne Harwood Sherrill - lead vocals
Alice-Anne Harwood Sherrill brings her non-stop laughter and mega-pipes as one of The Future Heavies lead vocalists. Her early obsession with The Cure guaranteed a solid 1980s alt addiction for most of her formative years. While her listening preferences leaned toward R.E.M., Nick Cave, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran and the like, her major influences and sound seems to align more with the ladies of the late 1980s: Sarah McLachlan, Tracy Chapman, Suzanne Vega, The Indigo Girls, 10,000 Maniacs, Edie Brickell, and Shawn Colvin. (She will admit to a guilty pleasure of seriously rocking out to hair and glam bands, too). Alice-Anne played her first gig at three years old, and never looked back. She's been off the stage for a bit, promoting and working to build the careers of other artists.
You might recognize her most from her role as the former Executive Director of the CT Folk Festival, or perhaps during her tenure at New Haven's Neighborhood Music School. Before jumping on board with The Future Heavies, she was a member of the folk duo The Woulds, and can be found, on occasion, throwing down some jazz standards with the remarkable George Melillo on keys.
