1. What is your artist name?

My artist name is Alexie.

2. How would you describe what you do?

I would say it's very new. I want to bring something different to the table, something people aren't used to. On paper it's described as Alternative R&B but music is music right? What matters is how it makes us feel. I like to write from experience, I feel like I have a story to tell and this is my way of telling it.

3. How long have you being performing/working?

Well I've been fully focusing on myself as a solo artist for around 18 months now but had previously worked with other artists for around 6 months before that.

4. What has been the highlight of your career to date?

To be honest, everything is so surreal for me at the moment, I can't choose! The fact that I'm here, genuinely happy and doing something I never thought I'd have the courage to do, is a highlight for me. But I guess seeing your own face in a magazine comes pretty close...

5. Have you worked/performed for/with anyone famous? 

I haven't! I have my eye on a few though so ask me again in a year or two ;)

6. If you could perform/work with anyone, who would it be?

Oh wow, erm, well one of my vocal idols is Jessie J so that would be amazing to perform with her. Work-wise, I'd have to say Lauryn Hill. I love the rawness in her lyrics, I think we could make a great track together!

7. What is your guilty pleasure?

I have more than one *hides face*. 90's girl groups, Gaming, Family Guy and Jalapeños straight from the jar. Before you ask, yes, I am a little weird but aren't the best of people? :)

8. Tell us one secret about yourself.

As much as people think I'm a highly confident person, deep down I'm actually really really shy :')

9. How and why did you get into this profession?

Well, music is the only thing in my life that hasn't let me down. It is everything I need. Plus I do really love to sing!

10. When you're not working what do you like to do to chill out?

Duvet days, xbox, food, Netflix and good company. Need I say more?
