Album Notes
With a moody, soulful sound and brazen lyrics dripping with a jaded brand of wisdom, BEX seamlessly blends alternative pop/rock with R&B and a heavy dose of blues. While the songs on "Sink or Swim" vary in tone, they all explore the concept of survival, digging into such challenges as toxic love, addiction to people or things, a crippling fixation on the past, and resistance to change. The overall vibe is dark — but with a light at the end of the tunnel.

BEX is a 2017 M.F.A. graduate of The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, as well as a full-time freelance journalist and blogger who has contributed to HuffPost, Elite Daily, and U.S. News. Her influences include Lissie, Banks, Hozier, Bishop Briggs, Stevie Nicks, and Bonnie Raitt (the latter two of which she grew up on).

In addition to writing all the songs on "Sink or Swim," BEX performed both piano and vocals. An emphasis was placed on the vocal production for this album — with backup vocals and thoughtful multi-layered harmonies, the aim was to leverage BEX’s voice as an additional instrument to achieve a complex texture, and a rich, emotionally stirring, gospel-inspired sound.

Already, "Sink or Swim," which released in January 2019, has garnered the attention of radio stations both local to Boston (including 92.5 WXRV The River) and as far as Berlin, Germany, as well as music blogs across the U.S. and as far as Australia.
