This recognition spearheaded a run of high-profile festivals performances and a slot opening for UK folk sensation Turin Brakes at the Lyme Regis Folk festival. Alex’s opening performances landed her two record deals, as she was quickly snapped up by US label OK!Good Records and Right Track Records UK. Alex started working with Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer Terry Britten (famous for “What’s Love Got To Do With It for Tina Turner) and went on to release her critically acclaimed debut Album “On this Day”

Following the success of Alex’s debut album, her voice and musicianship caught the eye of legendary Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre, who asked Alex to be a part of his band as a musician and vocalist for their European and international tour dates. Alex has performed and toured all over the UK/Europe with the band and is embarking on an international US tour, Spring 2022.

Alex also collaborates and performs alongside, the critically acclaimed Devon born folk singer Seth Lakeman, Alex’s voice as well as her multi-instrumental playing features heavily on his brand-new album. The new single “Higher We Aspire” is currently getting huge BBC Radio 2 support, and Alex has just performed the song live on BBC Breakfast TV.
