Alex Hamburger is a flutist, vocalist, and composer hailing from the vibrant music scene of Washington, DC. Raised in a family of accomplished artists, her passion for music ignited at a young age. After some time in New York and studying in prestigious institutions in New York and Switzerland, Alex has returned to DC with a renewed sense of purpose.

Alex's highly anticipated sophomore album, "What If?" (Unit Records, June 29th, 2023), delves into perception, transition, and the boundaries of human experience. With a quintet comprising talented musicians, (JoseĢ Luiz Martins, Tyrone Allen II, Chase Elodia and Patrick Graney) the album fuses electric and acoustic sounds for an immersive narrative. Support from Chamber Music America via their Performance Plus program where the band was mentored by Ingrid Jensen and the Pathways to Jazz Grant made this recording possible.

Her debut album, "And She Spoke" (November 2021), explores the diverse concept of the female voice through original compositions based on poetry by female poets and personalized arrangements of compositions by female composers. The album received critical acclaim and features renowned bassist Doug Weiss. The release tour of 6 cities was supported by the South Arts Jazz Road touring grant. Alex was also a member of the esteemed Focusyear band at JazzCampus in Basel Switzerland in 2018/19. Studying and performing alongside renowned artists, the international ensemble released an album of original music, "Open Paths'' and embarked on a successful European tour.

Alex's journeys abroad have ignited the flame for her to continue captivating audiences worldwide with her internationally acclaimed performances as she continues to tour around the world, having so far toured around Europe, South America and the US with her project.

While captivating audiences worldwide, Alex remains deeply connected to the DC music community. She was a member of the 2022 Strathmore Artist in Residence class and a 2022 Wammie awards nominee. Driven by a belief in the transformative power of music, Alex utilizes her talent to make a positive impact. Alex actively contributes to her hometown's musical landscape as the producer of the successful “My Body, My Festival”; a fundraiser for the DC Abortion Fund as well as assisting in the production of the Mid Atlantic Jazz Festival and teaching at Paul Carr's Jazz Academy of Washington. Alex's unwavering commitment to her craft and her desire to create resonating music reflect her dedication to both the stage and the community.
