Bex herself is known for having a voice of exceptional, captivating beauty and purity. She is a professional vocalist and recording artist and provides backing vocals for singer-songwriters across the UK.
Currently based in the culturally diverse and innovative musical hub that is Bristol, Bex is a singer-songwriter in her own right and also a multi instrumentalist playing piano, guitar and ukulele.
She is currently performing and touring internationally with the highly-acclaimed artist Fraser Anderson, whose latest album, ‘Under the Cover of Lightness’ was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s real world studio.
Born into a musical family, Bex found her love of singing early in life.
She began playing the piano at 8 years old, and by 14 trained with the Alicia Bardsley youth choir with whom she performed at the Royal Albert Hall for BBC's Choir of the year. The rigorous training, and the exposure to performance at such an early age, developed Bex’s technical understanding of vocal harmony and the standard technical approach to performance-level singing.
But it wasn’t until Bex started to perform solo that she began to explore her own sound and vocal expression, tapping into something inside herself that touched audiences and adjudicators. Her ability to express her emotion through sound found her consistently winning regional dancing, singing and piano competitions.
Engaged as a singer-songwriter for several years, leading to a performance at the eminent Bristol music venue St George’s Hall, Bex provided backing vocals for soul band Memzee and the Sweeteners and recorded vocals on Dave Green’s forthcoming album 'Unsteady On Your Feet'. She is the featured vocalist and backing singer on Fraser Anderson’s latest album, Under the Cover of Lightness.
She has toured with Fraser Anderson and his band, performing at Ronnie Scott’s (Jazz venue in London), The BBC Club, Zermatt festival Switzerland, Folk Music Ontario Conference in Ottawa, Canada, a national showcase in Paris Trois Baudets, Celtic Connections Festival, and performed as support act for Kula Shaker in Rome as part of the Villa Ada summer series.
She performed on SKY Vintage TV this year, and has recently been invited to showcase as a duo with Fraser Anderson at the prestigious music ‘Folk Alliance’ conference in Kansas, February 2017.
Bex holds a degree in Art and Social Context from the University of the West of England, Bristol and specialised in Performance Art as a vehicle for personal and social change.
As a highly creative and innovative artist, she has worked continuously and passionately to empower others to develop their creativity for many years. She started her working life hosting art and poetry workshops, and setting up a magazine to give a voice to the homeless about their lives and experiences.
Her love of music and personal development came together when she began teaching music and dance to people with learning difficulties at the City of Bristol College, and also sang in elderly residential care homes. This experience confirmed the healing and transformative effects of music that she instinctively knew for herself. Helping people of all ages and abilities to blossom.
A natural cultural leader, Bex ran music and personal development programmes for The Prince’s Trust, for whom she also developed her own unique residential programme called ‘Enabling each other’. This brought gifted corporate leaders together with disadvantaged young people to help them to work together to overcome the barriers they faced to realising their dreams.
Bex has served as long term director for the creative hub ‘Hamilton House’ in Stokes Croft, Bristol, supporting local artists, musicians and social enterprises to flourish, a creative community she continues to support as chair.
Her work has always honoured and created a space for the message or ‘Voice’ in each individual that needs to be heard- also within the context of high-level business coaching, facilitating community development initiatives, supporting vulnerable children and adults, creative therapeutic projects, or through social justice campaign work.
Bex is a deeply experienced personal development coach. She has coached large corporations and facilitated corporate leadership programmes for ‘BP’, accountancy firms, the NHS, and Police within the south west, amongst others. Her incredible intuitive faculty and emotional intelligence has enabled her to bring about positive and breakthrough transformation for a diverse array of individuals and groups. Her coaching work has improved the personal and professional lives of many, and at the heart of her work has been the art of empowering people to know and express their truth.
"Well, I wasn’t expecting that! I feel as though I met my voice for the first time in my life, and was amazed to find that I liked it. I found the session surprisingly therapeutic and quite moving, but most of all fun, I felt good for hours afterwards. Bex created a relaxed atmosphere and was wonderfully encouraging and I found myself happily singing within minutes. To say I’m looking forward to future sessions is an understatement. Thanks Bex!"
