This folk/ classical and rock inspired sound captured the interest of the judges at The Peoples Music Awards; progressing them to the third and final round of the 2011 Global competition: “A very interesting and extremely original song. Keep up the writing, this is very intriguing stuff.” Mick Glossop, Producer.
Why take the time to listen?
It’s not every day that you see a band perform with cello, piano, flute, acoustic guitar, double bass, drums and a plethora of vocal tones and harmonies. It is not every day that you see a band with a polished performance and a look of sheer determination to prove that real music can shine and it is not every day that you see a band that really enjoys a good bit of banter, on and off the stage. This band has real energy that makes you sit up and take note.
Not only does Amy write of rage, fantasy, alienation and confusion of every day life and the emotional strain of the glass ceiling but she also never stops thinking of new melodies, both for the voice and strings. “Amy’s voice is full of character and intensity”, Mick Glossop, Engineer and producer (Judge – Peoples Music Awards 2011). Her distinctive voice intertwines beautifully with the melancholy notes of the cello and piano. Amy has formed strong writing relationships with Jess Kennedy (Piano, vocal and flute), producing songs faster than they can be recorded. Jess’ passion for film and classical music gives the writing the added theatrics that really emanates on the stage. Brother and sister, Amanda & David Alvarez, furnish the lower frequencies of the Beatrix sound, proving catchy riffs and rhythms, fiercely cemented by the creative percussion of Jon Hunt.
