Contemporary jazz vocalist, songwriter, and Seattlite, Alex Baird strikes a sublime balance of creativity, quirkiness, and artistry on her debut recording Lemon Tree. Produced by acclaimed vocalist Jeff Baker and featuring a renowned gathering of sensitive & highly creative musicians, Alex Baird explores vibrant reimaginings of jazz standards and iconic pop tunes like ‘Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered,’ and ‘Still Crazy After All These Years,’ as well as stunning originals reminiscent of artists such as Norah Jones and Carol King.

The album is rounded out by new performances of tunes written and recorded in the ’60s by Alex’s late grandmother, Peggi Griffith, an acclaimed torch singer known as the ‘Seattle Darling.’Accompanying Alex on ‘Lemon Tree’ is a ‘Who’s-Who’ of world-class instrumentalists: Darrell Grant (piano), Clark Sommers (bass), Mark Ferber (drums), Thomas Marriott (trumpet), and Lucas Winter (guitar).

With a style that sits at the forefront of contemporary vocal jazz, Alex Baird takes her place alongside the modern singers who are reinvigorating the jazz idiom. Her credits include being the 2018 winner of the Kobe-Seattle Jazz competition, adult division.

Alex will be accompanied on July 26 at the Royal Room by Marina Albero (piano), Martin Budde (guitar), Michael Glynn (bass) and D’Vonne Lewis (drums)
