Fresh off a show-stopping performance at the Calgary Stampede Coca-Cola stage, 2019 will continue to be an exciting year for Alex with even more new music to release and gigs across North America.
Born and raised in Calgary, Alex’s Country background is rooted in a long-standing relationship performing alongside The Calgary Stampede Committee at hundreds of events across Alberta, including performing as the “Calgary Stampede Official Parade Float” singer for many years. Her unique upbringing in a large multicultural family has greatly influenced her style and made music an integral part of her life. This has given Alex her authentic country-style with a unique pop influence.
In 2018, Alex was honored to have been selected to participate in “Canada’s Music Incubator’s- Artist Entrepreneur West program” at the National Music Centre in Calgary. She spent her early 20’s in Los Angeles working alongside Grammy award winning producer, Walter Afanasieff. During her time in LA, Alex opened for Kenny G, performed at numerous charity events, Hollywood parties, and at the House of Blues. Alex performed across Alberta while in partnership with the Alberta Ram Dealers as part of a 3-year sponsorship deal. Because of this partnership Alex recorded and released an original 5 song EP which was distributed at rodeos across the province. She has also had the honor of opening for artists like Gary Fjelgard, George Canyon, Paul Brandt and Brett Kissel at various events. Alex also spent time in Nashville where she was a multiple award winner at the North American Country Music Association International Awards.
Singing and songwriting has been a lifelong dream for Alex. 2019 is shaping up to be her most exciting year yet and she’s so excited to share her journey with her fans!
