Alexa Shoen confuses everything with the blues. A San Diego native, Alexa grew up inhaling Motown and funk before beginning to front sixteen-piece big bands at the age of 14.
She fell into jazz backwards, by accident and from several different directions, slipping from The Supremes to Etta James to The Jackson 5 to Nancy Wilson to Tower Of Power to Bonnie Raitt --and referencing seamlessly between them.
A lyrical storyteller, she blends the heart of Eva Cassidy and the vocal power of Amy Winehouse with the warm era-gone-by tone of Norah Jones.
In 2011, Alexa broke from traditional big band jazz, and broke from America. She entered the Masters Programme at Leeds College of Music under the tutelage of Kari Bleivik (Røyst Trio) and You Are Wolf, studying Nordic jazz vocalists and experimental contemporary classical composers.
