Bex was born in Devon but now based in London, the product of two very different families, one blue blooded landed gentry, the other Irish Romany. As a child at family gatherings her uncles would always play and stand her on the table to sing. At 11 years old she was given a 1963 Gibson Hummingbird by her Uncle David (The Marauders) and started playing, she got hooked on instrumentals and classical guitar standards which stretched her fingers and gave her a great basis for her own music to develop, flamenco, ragtime, country chicken pickin’, rock and on to blues and roots where she is now in her element.
She always had a passion for travelling, it’s in her blood, trained as a croupier at 18 & began her travels around the world working gaming tables on cruise liners to Park Lane even dealing illegal poker games in Amsterdam. She hitch hiked the coast of Australia on cattle trains and always with a guitar on her back living and storing tales. Now she is headlining some of the world’s most prestigious stages playing and singing her own music. Bex was asked to be the guest JANIS (‘Joplin’) by Big Brother and the Holding Company’s original guitarist Sam Andrews on their 2014 European Tour with all original members. Bex was also asked to sing with Darby Slick as the voice of Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane) on her last US tour in 2018. Bex has toured USA 6 times to date. She has played The London Fleadh Festival alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, Robert Plant and Sheryl Crow & has performed on a number of occasions at the legendary Glastonbury Festival. Bex regularly conducts writing retreats for budding musicians in various countries. Bex is now sponsored by Teye Guitars, Ozark Resonators, the legendary guitar maker Chris Eccleshall who has built guitars for Clapton, Gallagher, and Bowie to name a few, Dr Strings USA, and GMF Amps.
