Live Music: Frankie Alexander

Frankie Alexander is often referred to as a musician's singer. Like an instrumentalist, she rarely performs a song the same way. Her understated style has been compared with such vocalists as Carmen McRae and Shirley Horn, two singers that Alexander is quick to claim as influences. A native of Concord, NC, and a resident of Durham since the late seventies, Alexander has worked with and learned from some of the most talented and influential musicians in the area including Steve Wing, Ed Paolantonio, Robert Trowers, Louis Sawyer, Scott Sawyer and our beloved Yusuf Salim and Bus Brown.
