Violinist / Singer-Songwriter Alexvndria Announces Debut EP Hopeless Romantic

She's embarking on a transformative journey into becoming a singer-songwriter

Once solely a classical violinist, Alexvndria has embarked on a transformative journey into becoming a singer-songwriter with her debut EP Hopeless Romantic. She seamlessly blends her classical roots with a fresh and contemporary musical perspective.

Set to release February 9, 2024, Hopeless Romantic will feature 5 tracks covering subjects like situationships, lust, unrequited love, and fulfilling love. In a gradient of simple sounds growing in complexity, Alexvndria incorporates orchestral moments reflecting her experiences from the symphony hall to the recording studio. Her cover of “He Loves Me”, by Jill Scott, was inspired by her appreciation for Neo Soul. “Neo Soul deeply influenced my expectations of romance, so it felt fitting to pick a song from the genre that portrays a good and healthy love.” With a full orchestra and jazz trio, Alexandria brought on Matt Jones to arrange a lush, orchestral interpretation of the song.

Employing elements of classical, jazz, soul, and R&B, this entire work is a musical journal entry on Alexvndria’s experience with love. Her most personal song “Stay” represents a relationship in which one waits too long for their partner to say I love you for the first time. Alexvndria sings “Will you say you love me? Will you stay forevermore? I know I gave my heart too soon, but don’t leave me wanting more. This feeling I keep inside can only live alone for so long, and when I look into your eyes they tell me you don’t want to go.” These words dig deep into the experience of knowing one may have to walk away from someone who isn’t ready for love.

The writing process of this project was a collage of artistic involvement. “Twilight” and “Stay” were produced by Chucky Kim who added a wide range of electronic and keyboard instruments. “Epigraph” came about after working on the track “Twilight”. “The electric bass solo was stuck in my head all day. Before I knew it, I was calling up a friend to improvise over it and recorded the whole song in my living room.” Her other song “Silly Me” was written and recorded while on tour with The Broadway Sinfonietta. Finding a studio along the way, all string members and drummer contributed to the arrangement of the song. 

Recorded in a span of 4 months across 6 cities, the process of creating Hopeless Romantic has given Alexvndria the confidence to move forward as a singer-songwriter with proof she is capable of creating her own artwork.
