Alice Merton | Collective Arts Black Box Sessions

Alice Merton performs "No Roots" and "Lash Out" live at Indie88 in the Collective Arts Black Box.

After being born in Germany, moving to the US, and then settling in Canada, singer-songwriter Alice Merton’s travels were only just beginning. She has moved twelve times in her 25 years, so it’s no surprise she wrote “No Roots” to get out some of her feelings on the lack of having one place where she could call home.

After its release in 2016, the track quickly became a radio hit, shooting to number one on Spotify’s Global Viral 50, and charting internationally and in the US. She released the single “Lash Out” earlier this year, and is scheduled to release her debut full-length album Mint in January, 2019.
