The music of artist “ALXXA” has been creating buzz worldwide. Blending intelligent instrumental arrangements with haunting vocals and modern electronic production influences, ALXXA’s fresh take on pop music is sure to transport listeners.
Lead Vocalist/Keys Player Alex Saad grew up with a piano at her fingertips, and her diverse interests shaped her into the unique songwriter she is today. She has almost 20 years of dance training under her belt, including classical ballet and hip hop. She received a degree in Physics with a concentration in Music from Loyola University Maryland. Her love for travel sent her to study in Australia for six months, and allowed her to tour her music all throughout Europe. Worth noting is her extremely sarcastic sense humor and a faulty brain-to-mouth filter. She is also a lover of all things fashion, especially when jewels, spikes, and heels are involved. Her diverse interests, experience, and education all play a huge role in Alex’s writing process.
Unexpected chord formations and changes, stemming from her intense musical theory background, drive Alex’s modern interpretation of a standard pop arrangement, and her powerful haunting vocals are her vehicle for delivering honest, heartfelt lyrics that provide a new perspective on the human condition. Her musical training allows her to be an integral part of the music production process. Alex wrote and performed most of the instrumental parts featured on her first EP, released in July of 2014. The East-Coast tour of the EP in the summer of 2014 took her to prestigious venues including World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Bowery Electric and Pianos Lounge in NYC, and The State Theater in Culpeper Virginia. She had the pleasure of sharing the stage with several national acts, such as Paula Cole in January of 2013. In May of 2015, ALXXA toured throughout Europe, playing over 17 shows in 6 different countries.
Alex took her music to Nashville in 2013, where she has been relentlessly writing, performing, recording, and producing to develop her craft. An ALXXA performance will silence a room and stir curiosity, while her blunt and honest sense of humor will amuse her audience, leaving them excited and ready for more.
More Recently, ALXXA has transitioned even further into the electronic world. Alex’s education in Physics gave her the tools to both record and produce her own music, and she is now fully involved in every part of the musical process for her next release. She is excited to share what she has in store with her audience and friends in LA!
