Rachel Ivy Alex on SoundBetter

I'm a multi-instrumentalist, Berklee alumni and singer-songwriter here to help bring more magic to your projects. I love session work and am dedicated to getting the best takes to create masterful songs. I attended Berklee College of Music for Film Scoring and have collaborated on many different genre styles. Let's work! 🌝

I go by Ivy Alex. I'm a singer-songstress, pianist and flautist. After working on cruise ships for several years as a dueling pianist, my focus is now entirely on songwriting and composing. I write in all types of styles from ambient classical piano to neosoul to country and have collaborated on pop, edm, and jazz tracks. I love vocal production and arranging but my specialty is melodies. Looking for beautiful flute lines or gorgeous ambient piano or vocal melodies/harms? I'm your girl!

I've also written several pieces for Spitfire Audio Libraries (available on their and my ig @ivyalexmusic)

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
