Bexk’s an unique talent, her soft voice blends well with atmospheric production and has melodies that will leave you lost in her world. Get to know Bexk before everyone else does in our interview below.
1. Introduce yourself and tell us why you make music?
My name is Bexk and I make music because it gives me an outlet to express my creativity, thoughts and opinions.
I also make music so people have something that allows them to get through any situation in their life. Whether they’re going through a breakup, grieving for a loved one, dealing with depression or if they’re deeply in love. Everything that I create I want there to be a little something for everyone.
2. What has had the greatest influence on your art?
The world and the people in it have by far been the greatest influence on not only my art but my life as well. As I’ve gotten older I’ve noticed how complicated and cold the world has become, you can’t help but feel consumed by it. As a result I try to keep my art uncomplicated, I don’t try to cover up how I’m feeling. Being up front is how I choose to live my life, so it’s only right that my art is as well.
3. What are your thoughts on the Toronto Music Scene and where do you stand as a young artist?
The Toronto music scene is slowly growing, it’s only a matter of time before it blows up and shows the world that we’re just as much of a competitor as New York and LA are. As for where I stand as a young artist in Toronto, I’m going to continue to work on my craft so that day will finally become reality.
4. Why should people come see you at The Alley, what should they expect?
What to expect when you come to The Alley to see me perform – a bunch of good vibes and some nice melodies that’ll get stuck in your head forever.
5.Tell us more about your latest release?
Make sure to look out for my debut album “Undo” in Fall 2015
