Currently studying at Birmingham Conservatoire, Alex Clarke has already had a busy and varied jazz career, mainly in the Midlands and North West. As a tenor saxist, she acknowledges the influence of Ben Webster and Lester Young, but she is as much at home on flute and clarinet and covers a wide range of styles, from Dixieland to Big Band to ska to a Pink Floyd tribute band. Placed 5th in the Rising Star category at this year’s British Jazz Awards, she has already shared a stage with such notables as Roy Williams, Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams, Gilad Atzmon and Greg Abate.
