With her band, The Dearhearts, Alixandra Cowman has played music across North America. Now, she’s stepping out on her own, bringing her unique style of music with her.
She's Dolly Parton meets Ingrid Michaelson, She & Him meets Abigail Washburn. Her music is heart-forward and honest, and her voice is a powerhouse blend of her classical training and her experience in the world of folk music. With lyrics that can be simultaneously irreverent and devastating ("Dead, dead, we're all gonna be dead" is one example), Alixandra doesn't shy away from the truth of the song, and does it all with a wink and a grin.
Alixandra will sweep you into the clouds with beautiful melodies, and bring you back down to earth with the music that was written in her bones from the beginning.
