About Alex

Alex is a dynamic vocalist, singer/songwriter, & actress based in Buffalo, NY.

From the first moments she can remember, music brought comfort & joy like nothing else - the house she grew up in was filled with it all. From instrumental jazz, classical, prog rock, Motown & soul, 80's-2000's pop, to every Disney movie that had a song to sing & dance to, her parents did not hold back exposing her to as much of the musical world as they could. Doing so fostered an appreciation for many approaches to musical storytelling and expression.

Alex's love for storytelling via musical means led her to study musical theatre & music at the University at Buffalo. After meeting George Caldwell during jazz ensemble auditions her first year, she found a deep appreciation for vocal jazz music & improvisation that she had not felt before. She decided to study independently with some of the best jazz musicians, educators, & composers of the Buffalo region, all aiding the creation & control of her rich, soulful sound.

Since then, she remains open to the ways in which she can continue to share her love of music & storytelling with musicians & audiences alike of any & all backgrounds. 

Winner in the JazzBuffalo Poll for Female Jazz Vocalist of the Year in 2018 & 2021, she has led her own jazz & pop groups in Buffalo since 2016. Her groups  of multiple genres (jazz, pop/funk/soul) can be regularly found at various venues, festivals, & events in the Western New York area. When not performing under her own name, she can be found as a featured guest for a variety of jazz, pop, blues, funk, & classical performances/groups in the area.

Alex is a vocalist & master of ceremonies for weddings & private/corporate events with The Silver Arrow Band, & is an active member of the theatre & choral communities of Buffalo (Starring Buffalo, Musicalfare Theatre, Vocalis Chamber Choir, Harmonia Vocal Jazz Ensemble). In May 2022, she was inducted as a board member for the Sportsmen's Americana Music Foundation.
