After her packed out hometown headline show at Norwich Arts centre Alex is back to perform at Norwich's famous Waterfront. Described as reminiscent to Kate Bush and Karen Carpenter (Send Me Your Ears & Sinusoidal) Alex Kate has entered the music industry ring as someone to be heard. Achieving the “2023 Glastonbury emerging talent long list”, others think so too. Her sound has journeyed from synth pop, to rock pop back to synth pop again with her third EP. But one thing remains the same, her haunting vocals and her catchy hooks throughout her songs. Her main sonic inspirations are, Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac, 1975, Christine & The Queens and Florence and The Machine.
Alicia Blü is a versatile vocalist blending folk, pop, and more. She has performed across Europe, weaving a tapestry of genres together, drawing inspiration from artists like Aurora and Norah Jones. In solo and collaborative acts, Alicia Blü invites listeners to experience the spontaneous magic of music. From impromptu creations based on audience suggestions to original songs and covers, each performance is a unique connection between artist and audience.
Beyond the stage, Alicia Blü shares the joy of singing through teaching 1-1 and group sessions at retreat centers and events. She is currently working on her debut album, in which you should expect an intimate exploration of sound.
