· ABOUT ·

Having been away from the active music scene for
several years while raising her 4 children, Alex Spencer
has returned with a compelling new album, Shine.
Teaming up with the stellar Berlin jazz trio of Ben
Lehmann (double bass), Martial Frenze (drums) and Paul
Engelmann (alto saxophone), Spencer has produced
work of change and transformation. The songs explore
juxtapositions between youth and ageing, children and
parents, technology and humanity – all underpinned by
the group’s steady rhythms and mellow tones. Part
feel-good jazz, part sophisticated folk, this album
stretches its arms wide and brings its themes together
around a kitchen table where everyone is welcome.

Growing up in a musical family amongst both the green
hills of western England and the forests of southern
Germany, Alex Spencer moved to the big city of Berlin
after her studies in Philosophy in the summer of 2000.
Between her children and working as a teacher, she has
also managed to keep her life and identity as an artist
alive, releasing her first album, ‘Underwater’ in 2010 and
following it up with ‘Shine’ in 2019. When she’s not
playing live on the Berlin singer-songwriter gig circuit,
Alex can be found walking her dog through Görlitzer Park
in her Kreuzberg neighbourhood.
