Cinematic yet captivatingly intimate with mysterious, old soul sensibility, Alexa Dark is a Spanish/American multi instrumentalist singer songwriter raised between Barcelona, Munich, London, Paris, and NYC. Drawing inspiration from her multicultural upbringing and eclectic music taste (from Françoise Hardy to Portishead), as well as her love for film noir, French New Wave cinema, and Jazz age literature, Dark began writing her own songs and poetry in her early teenage years. She quickly took this to the stage, where she began performing live in London, both solo with her acoustic guitar and in different bands. It was here that Dark honed her artistic direction and arrived at her unique sound and presence, soundtracking a 60s, Bond-like world of mystery with a femme fatale villainess at its center.
Dark moved to New York City, becoming involved in the downtown music scene and began working on new material. She wrote and recorded her debut song “Fade to Black and Blue" and following singles with producer Matt Chiaravalle (Debbie Harry, Warren Zevon), mastered by Grammy-award winner Emily Lazar (Beck, Haim) and Grammy-nominated Joe Lambert (Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten). Dark's siren-like singles set the stage for her villain origin story culminating in her debut EP "Dark, Vol. I," out now.
She is now based between New York City & Los Angeles.
