Jo Alexis is a songwriter, producer and vocalist for over 150 songs for her many projects including Alexis/Alexander, Happy For No Reason and her latest, GALEXI. Often compared to Sinead O’Connor & Bjork, she brings great hooks to enchanting melodies and her vocals leave the listener wanting more.
Her jazz/folk trio, Happy For No Reason, just released their second CD, “Take It Higher” co-produced by Alisdair Lee and Grammy-award winning engineer, Sean Flora. If you are a fan of Sara Bareilles or Joni Mitchell’s Hejira, you will love this music. Her other main band is GALEXI, a synthpop duo, who released a lyric video of their single, “Liquid Midnight Blue” (which may or may not include psychedelic space travel.)
As a prolific songwriter, Jo has recorded in Nashville, Los Angeles, NYC, Philadelphia and Portland with some heavy hitters like Brad Rabuchin (played with Ray Charles) and Jef Lee (played with Roberta Flack.) She’s also shared the stage with Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary and she’s had a song placed in the video game “Reactor/Master Ground 3”.
