Jazz musician/vocalist and actress, Alex McArthur, joined Rockabilly Greg In the Flamingo Lounge on January 2, 2023 to talk about her musical journey and current projects.
Alex is a dynamic vocalist, singer/songwriter, & actress based in Buffalo, NY.
From the first moments she can remember, music brought comfort & joy like nothing else – the house she grew up in was filled with it all. Alex’s love for storytelling via musical means led her to study musical theatre & music at the University at Buffalo.
Alex was the recipient of Best Female Jazz Vocalist of the Year in 2018 & 2021 in the JazzBuffalo Poll. She is a vocalist & master of ceremonies for weddings and private/corporate events with The Silver Arrow Band, and is an active member of the theatre & choral communities of Buffalo (Starring Buffalo, Musicalfare Theatre, Vocalis Chamber Choir, Harmonia Vocal Jazz Ensemble).
In May 2022, she was inducted as a board member for the Sportsmen’s Americana Music Foundation.
Alex will be performing at Musicalfare Theatre from January 13-29, 2023 as Billy Holiday in LADY DAY AT EMERSON’S BAR AND GRILL. Below is a sneak peak of Alex rehearsing for the show with accompanist George Caldwell.
