Alexandra Kladi was born and raised in Zakynthos. She studied musicology at National and Kapodistian University of Athens and Music Theory at Philippos Nakas Conservatory. She also studied classical singing and piano and she showed great interest in other musical instruments too, such as the oboe, the accordion, the mandolin, and the guitar.
But it was musical composition that won her over, so she continued her studies in contemporary composition and film scoring. Her songs are strongly influenced by traditional, classical, jazz and pop music, and her lyrics are characterized by simplicity and immediacy. Her vocal performance is ingenuous, aimed at expressing the essence of straightforwardness and authenticity of her songs.
Her intense and multi-faceted creativity is not limited to song-writing; she currently lives and works in Athens as a music teacher, directs the Philippos Nakas children's choir, writes children's books, composes children's musicals, and also writes music for theatre and films. She divides her time among teaching, composing, recording and performing, as well as all of her wide interests; from yoga to mathematics, she is a life-long learner and polymath. Alexandra is also a strong advocate of human and animal rights and is deeply concerned about environmental issues.
