Presenting: Saxify musicians - Lex Empress

Lex Empress wrote the lyrics and sings lead and backing vocals on “Tudo Bem”.  Also she sings backing vocals and ad libs on “Throwback”. 

I met this magical woman many years ago, I think in 2002 or 2003 when first performing with dj’s. I am not sure anymore when and where, I was probably under her spell and she erased all my memories.… It could be a little festival in the Netherlands or maybe we met for the first time travelling to Luxembourg to perform there? She’s a person, when she stands in front of you you don’t know what to say until you figure out that she’s human. I’v seen many people getting strange physical reactions from her.. turning into stone or differently, their knees began to buckle and their stared at her and started to stutter when meeting her! When she enters a room, everybody turns his head. Of course, she’s Lex Empress.. or by the earth name of Alexandra Keijssers :-)

She travelled the world and performed everythere while I did my music studies in the Netherlands and recorded jazz cd’s with my band. 
Throughout the years we kept performing together because we have a common network. When our paths cross it’s always special. Different lives, but always instantly connecting when performing together on stage. I am glad I could capture her on Saxify.
Currently she resides in Ibiza and keeps performing all over the world…
