Alexia Gardner Switzerland has discovered a Super Voice!
In the Blick Newpsaper, which is a Swiss National Paper, there was an exciting 17 page pull-out about Jazzascona coming up on June 21 - July 1 2012! I am happy to say that amongst all the exciting articles about international men and women, privaliged to perform in Ascona this year; there was this very flattering piece on me.
Well, what can I say, I was really chuffed to read that title. Of course I'm humble enough to say I haven't really got a SUPER VOICE! I am always learning and growing and exploring the voice that God has given me. But it sure is great to hear such praise. I can only move forward and give my best every single time I get on that stage!
Good Morning Everyone,
I just have to say a very warm and huge thank you to all of you who came out to the Allegra Club in the Hilton Hotel on Friday night! Didn't we have a blast! It was just the perfect concert. A wonderful vibe from the audience and the band members right through the entire night.
Marcel, Kalli, Beat and Claudio - you guys were simply swinging hard from the moment we hit the stage. It was magical. We have had so many compliments via e-mails and phone calls but the greatest joy was just seeing all your faces - all lit up- on Friday night.
That gig was something special. Thats why I just love LIVE shows. It's a magical moment that can't be duplicated. You are there! You live it! You feel it! Thats JAZZ. And unfortunately, if you miss it! YOU MISS IT!!! BIG TIME.
Hello there everyone! Greetings from sleepy Liestal!....thats in Basel Land in Switzerland! Most of us are asleep here but that could be because I was just chatting to a friend in Miami and to my Mum in Montego Bay!! So things seem real quiet........until of course.... I get a text from Kalli Gerhards (Mr Bass Man). He says...... 'Check this out'. I click on the link and find I am in the Bolero Magazine for Men. I am in their September issue. I did a crazy photoshoot 2 months ago as a guest of Robi Weber (Piano Player, Composer, Writer and Swiss Jazz Award winner) and his good friend, Ernst Witz (Saxophonist, Photographer, Artistic Director).
It was crazy....... models, make-up artists and hair stylists, camera men and scene builders, glasses of champagne, smoke and cigars and me! I was told what to wear and someone played with my hair and I allowed a make-up artist to do my make-up.....
So the end result is.....'OOOOOOOH BOY!'

Hi Guys! Guess what? I am in the JAZZTIME TODAY. I was interviewed for the Swiss Jazz and Blues Magazine - JAZZTIME. I am featured in their September issue talking about my feelings on winning the 2011 Swiss Jazz Award with Offbeat Trio. I thought I might share the interview with you all. It would help if you spoke GERMAN, though. If not, just know that I was absolutely 'chuffed' by the whole thing!
