What are some of your biggest accomplishments thus far in your career?

It wasn’t until I started living in Vancouver for university in 2014 that I discovered my own ability to write a catchy hook. At this time I actively started to pursue songwriting courses while attending the University of British Columbia. In my last season in Vancouver I attended Nimbus School of Recording & Media studying songwriting & artist development under the direction of Dave Genn(Canadian band, 54–40). At the time Alexandra performed many gigs and open mics at venues all over Vancouver’s Lower Mainland. I am proud of being chosen to sing a vocal solo at Lincoln Centre in New York City in March 2018 under the direction of Pitch Perfect’s Deke Sharon. I am also proud of my set at the iconic “Bitter End” songwriter venue (Joni Mitchell, Etta James, Lady Gaga) in New York City in May 2019.

Alexandra also recorded & released a single- Non Lo So including Nik Pesut(Carly Rae Jepsen) on the drums produced by Dave Genn(54–40). Attending a vocal summit in Los Angeles Oct 2019 for young protegee singers directed by Dawn Elder & being selected to receive weekly online mentorship with her after the program ended.

Alexandra will be headed down to Los Angeles as soon as the quarantine is over to record 2 singles

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Singing my heart out to stadiums full of young girls who believe my messaging. Having released at least a couple albums.

What legacy do you wish to leave behind for yourself?

I want to help girls feel more confident through listening to my music and my lyrics, and feel inspired through the hardships that young womanhood brings. I want to leave behind a legacy of having a very unique vocal power.
