Since 2004, multilingual singer-songwriter Alexa Weber Morales has made 11 studio recordings, including solo albums Jazzmérica, Vagabundeo and I Wanna Work For You. Vagabundeo, named “one of the greatest Bay Area recordings in recent times” by Latin Beat magazine, made top-20 airplay nationwide. Her soulful lead singing and lyric contributions to three-time Grammy nominee Wayne Wallace's 2007 date The Reckless Search for Beauty received acclaim from around the world (check out Alexa singing a salsa version of "Use Me" and a Spanish version of "Afro Blue"). Alexa joined the ranks of Grammy-nominated artists with her vocal contributions to the Latin Jazz short-listed album Bien! Bien! by Wayne Wallace in 2011.
Alexa is a dynamic and honest-to-goodness stage performer who counts sold-out shows at Yoshi's, Jazz at Pearl's, Cafe Cocomo, San Jose Jazz Festival and the Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society to her name. She's also played Sonoma Jazz + Wine Festival, The Improv San Jose, The Little Fox in Redwood City, Santana Row, the Monterey Blues Festival (opening for Lenny Williams of Tower of Power), the Reno Jazz Orchestra, the Artichoke Festival (opening for Average White Band) and venues in Boston, Austin and Los Angeles. She plans to develop a touring show in the near future.
Rio de Janeiro–based producer Arnaldo DeSouteiro (João Gilberto, Luiz Bonfá) calls her original compositions “rhythmically captivating and entrancing.” A June 2008 DownBeat review of Vagabundeo enthuses, “Her large-scale skill and talent encourages her all-inclusive dreams” and praises her “gorgeous articulation, flowing time sense and warm tone.”
