From Etta James to Janis Joplin, Mary J Blige to Adele, Alex Hepburn is the latest singer/songwriter in a long lineage of strong females who put their lives, their loves and all that entails on the line with every vocal performance.

Hepburn was inspired by her mother to explore singing and songwriting, as a way to cope with the trauma and anxiety following her father’s death, as well as the suicide of her younger sister, both of which happened within weeks of each other.

Her single “I Believe” samples Aretha Franklin’s “People Get Ready,” and her vocals are expressive, raw and bluesy, where the listener can recall Andra Day meets Amy Winehouse. The song certainly has a retro soul vibe to it, and she forms a strong connection with her listening audience.
