Hailing from Brisbane, Alex has spent time over the years collecting different musical experiences as a soloist, chorister and director across a range of different genres. At the ripe old age of six, she began her training with the Australian Girls Choir, which fostered her love of all things vocal, choral, and harmony, performing in projects like The Boy From Oz Australian Tour, Bledisloe Cup & various Socceroos Games, and hundreds of performances around the state. After eight years of devoted choral singing, she moved on to take her vocal studies further by studying under Susanna O’Leary, before entering the Bachelor of Music program at the Queensland University of Technology.
While at QUT, Alex studied performance, songwriting, and sound production (with a few film subjects thrown in), while throwing herself into various projects that allowed her to exercise her creativity. This led to her creating, writing, arranging and performing in the vocal group Jazel, which saw her support one of the world’s pioneering vocal groups Naturally 7, and gaining attention from some of her musical heroes, The Idea of North.
Alex graduated from the QUT BMus program with Distinction in 2015, and has since won awards both state-wide and nationally for her vocal arrangements & compositions in the AUSACA Australian A Cappella Championships. One of her biggest passions in the music world is working with various vocal ensembles to help bring out the more modern and creative side to choral music. Alex conducted her first choir at age 16, and now at 21 has grown her experiences in all aspects of vocal music. Currently Alex is director of both QUT Music Society’s Vox Pop Choir (QUT’s only choir program on campus) and Centenary State High School’s Choral Program (since 2013), performer and music director for 8-piece vocal group Anomaly, and works as both an arranger and creative consultant for various groups across the country (as well as working on the odd project of her own, too!). Alex is looking to complete further postgraduate studies of the voice, arranging and conducting this year.
