Alex’s Musical Journey

Originally trained classically, Alexandra found her talent and love for singing in choirs at school and university. Her low range and tonal quality was identified early as rare and something to be shared more as a soloist.

What attracted her to music initially was the opportunity to collaborate with others to share the experience of such a full sound created together and to have the experience of expressing and releasing emotion and communicating in a way that only music and art is able to do.

After years of singing in choirs including chamber choirs, Alexandra had a yearning for learning more about jazz and blues, feeling intuitively that her voice although very suited to opera due to it’s natural fast vibrato, could also be suitable to jazz, blues and contemporary styles. In her mid 20’s she started to listen to more music that broadened her horizons and exposed her to some of the greats that inspire her performance today, initially trying her hand at backing vocals and eventually moving to solo performance that allowed her full voice to be heard.

Inspired by the likes of Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall, Aretha Franklin and Etta James, and some of the male greats such as Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles, Alexandra Frost and the musicians that work with her are bound to lift your spirits as you lose yourself in a special, musical experience.

Alexandra Frost has been performing with various combinations of duos, trios bands and ensembles for many years and, in particular recently, has won hearts and minds at Wassail Wine Bar in what has now been a 3 year residency initially as a duo with acoustic guitar and  more recently over the past 18 months with keyboard that she feels fully allows her most freedom to be who she wants to be musically. There she woos patrons with her intimate yet powerful performance style accompanied by Ed Heddle, a jazz pianist and talented composer whose versatility, passion and interpretation makes for a truly unique and engaging duo.

Alexandra has performed in many well known venues around South Australia, including Wassail Wine Bar, The Daniel O’Connell Hotel, The Kentish Arms Hotel, The Duck Inn, The Third Cork Wine Bar, Finn MacCools, Bacchus Wine Bar, The Hyatt Hotel, The Coopers Alehouse, Escobar, The Old Adelaide Inn, The Governor Hindmarsh Hotel, and in The Adelaide Fringe Festival.

She has also performed at many private and corporate functions and is drawn to create  more performance experiences in the coming years aimed at a listening jazz/blues/cabaret audience interested in a performance where the music, the stories and the emotion takes centre stage.

She is planning to build on her recent professional development in cabaret to plan a cabaret show to allow her to truly bring her entire self to the stage and to showcase the repertoire that she most resonates with and wants to share. She is most attracted to performing in intimate settings where she is able to feed off her own and the audience’s energy to produce a performance that evokes emotion, provokes thought and captivates with a depth that is not always found.
