With a vintage sound that is at once cinematic and captivatingly intimate, Alexa Dark is a New York City-based singer/songwriter raised between Spain, Germany, and London. Drawing inspiration from her transient, multicultural upbringing and developing an eclectic musical taste while growing up in London, Dark began writing her own songs and poetry in her early teenage years. Influenced by a broad range of artists such as Françoise Hardy, Jack White, Portishead, and Patsy Cline, she began performing live in London both solo and with different bands. On these stages, she was able to hone her artistic direction and arrive at her unique sound and presence. Dark moved to New York City, where she became deeply involved in the live downtown music scene and began working on new material. She wrote and recorded her debut song “Fade to Black and Blue” and second single “Blind Faith” with producer Matt Chiaravalle (Debbie Harry, Warren Zevon), mastered by Grammy-award winner Emily Lazar (Beck, Haim). With over 10,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, over 100,000 streams on her debut single “Fade to Black and Blue,” and key features on Apple Music’s New In Rock playlist, Dark’s authentic lyricism and distinctive musical production makes her an up-and-coming artist to watch.
