Alexa Barchini is a jazz vocalist, composer, and lyricist based in the Philadelphia area. Though initially attracted to mostly classical and pop repertoire, she was introduced to jazz and improvised music as a teenager. Somewhere along the line she caught the proverbial ‘bug,’ and has since gone on to study and perform in various settings, with tours taking her to Los Angeles, Berlin, New York, and Boston. With a particular interest in the music of Brazil, her compositions fuse her deep love of jazz and jazz singing—rich harmonies, a capacity for story telling, and improvisatory freedom—with playful Latin-influenced rhythms and the warm, understated style of singers like João Gilberto.
