Alex Hamburger

Growing up in the Washington, DC area as the daughter of two accomplished artists, a drummer and a dancer, Alex's love for music started very early. After some time away, a few years in New York and one in Switzerland, Alex has now returned to DC and with a sense of urgency and ready to make some noise. Her debut album “And She Spoke” (released in November 2021) brings together a collection of music inspired by the diverse and ever changing concept of the female voice, featuring original compositions heavily inspired by poetry written through the female voice and personalized arrangements of female-written compositions. Featuring world renown bassist Doug Weiss along with producer/pianist José Luiz Martins and drummer Chase Elodia, “And She Spoke” is “An album whose spontaneity and subtle sophistication reveal new treasures with each listening” (Patrick Dallongeville, Paris- Move). The album's CD release tour in 6 different cities in the US was funded by the Jazz Road touring grant, a national initiative of South Arts, which is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
