Alicia Lemke (3 February 1987 – 9 August 2015) was an American singer.

Biography[edit]

Lemke was born in Madison, Wisconsin to Bradley and Gale Lemke.[2][3] She attended Shorewood Hills Elementary School, Blessed Sacramant School, and West High School.[2] She appeared in Children's Theatre of Madison productions numerous times.[2] After graduating from West, Alicia went to school at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania. She was double majoring in biology and musical theater because she had a passion for both science and the arts. She eventually pursued the arts route, and she attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

She then moved to New York, doing gigs around clubs in the city. It was during that time that she developed her voice as a musician.[2] People in New York and Los Angeles urged her to change her name to avoid confusion with Alicia Keys, so she chose the name Alice and the Glass Lake, which she chose as an ode to a lake in Northern Wisconsin at which her family had a cabin.[2][4]

On July 9, 2009, Lemke created a YouTube channel where she would upload videos of covers and original compositions.[5]

On June 20, 2012 Matt Harding released "Where the Hell is Matt? 2012". The video features Matt and many others dancing in 71 locations, comprising 55 countries and 11 US states. The video uses the song "Trip the Light", composed by Garry Schyman and sung by Alicia Lemke.[6]

In 2013, she opened for Fleetwood Mac.[1] That year, she had also played at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Tennessee.[1] In August 2013, she released her first EP of electronic dream pop.[1] In December of that year, she was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia while on vacation in France.[1][2]

She posthumously appeared in Eminem's album, Revival in the title track, Revival (Interlude). The vocals were taken from an unreleased song submitted to Eminem in 2012.[7][8]

Death[edit]

She died on August 9, 2015 from leukemia.[2] She had been sending notes to her producer about her then-upcoming album Chimaera up to two days before her death.[1]
