As a finalist at the BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year 2020, and winner of the Rising Star category in the 2019 British Jazz Awards, Alex
is known to be one of the most in-demand and versatile young reeds players emerging on the British jazz scene. Praised for her extensive repertoire list and intelligent ear for harmony, she brings a youthful, intuitive approach which sounds authentic in a variety of musical settings from New Orleans to bebop. Alex’s sound is steeped in the tradition of jazz; her deep respect for the heritage of the music can be heard in a swinging, melodic approach reminiscent of Scott Hamilton and Lester Young, with strong influences of Phil Woods and Cannonball Adderley. Featured with Alex’s Trio is Dave Newton
, principal lecturer in Jazz Piano at Leeds College of Music, voted ‘best Jazz Pianist’ sixteen times in the British Jazz Awards, and all-round master of his instrument!
