Meet the Band

Beatrix Players 2

Beatrix Players

The Band

We are Beatrix Players, an all female trio based in London, combining dramatic piano, strong cello and heady vocals, using dark melodies to tell our stories of real life and fantasy, influenced by a love of film scores and classical composition, we experiment with different styles of acoustic folk and pop to create music not for the faint hearted. “Gentle on the ear but strong enough to make a great impression on the mind. A waft of elegant anglicana, which hints at jazz and levels of unplugged sophistication. So good they should be declared compulsory listening for all those seeking music beyond the norm. Swoonsome harmonies to swim with, drown in…Not one gruff note or rough vocal line, recalls the likes of Pentangle and maybe even a whisper of Sandy Denny in the way they relate to homegrown musical stylings.” Moorlands Radio "Enchantingly Dark" Radicals Rising

Jess Kennedy

Pianist, backing vocalist and writer

Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, Jess has always had a creative imagination, happily spending hours making up plays, musicals and puppet shows in the backyard for her little sister to star in and her toys and parents to be audience to. Jess started writing music as a teenager, composing piano-based instrumentals - influenced by her classical training, interest in celtic folk music and love of the dramatic. Over the years, Jess has collaborated with many musicians and ensembles (currently also playing with London-based band - Swallow and the Wolf), and has drawn upon this varied experience to help develop the music of the Beatrix Players. Jess lives in Hackney, East London, attracted to the sense of community and creativity that is alive there. Jess is known for her colourful clothes and signature bad dance moves :)

Amanda Alvarez

Cellist & writer

Amanda grew up in Madrid, Spain where music was always present at home. Amanda was always encouraged to develop their creative abilities. She stumbled across different instruments, but it was love at first play when the cello appeared! She moved to London not knowing what to expect and 4 years later she’s still loving every minute, especially with the Beatrix Players. Amanda has a love for the classics and so you'll probably find her playing to some Bach cello suits in the back room or eating! “Love food & love a bit of Bach :)” Final comment: “Good music, good food and good friends!”

Amy White

Lead vocalist and writer

Amy started performing from an early age, performing at her first piano recital at the age of 11 with a rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Waters. It was shortly after that Amy began to sing in the local church choir in her hometown of Stoke-on-Trent, where she soon found her real passion...singing. Before attending university to study Music Technology, Amy was very fortunate to meet and learn from some great musicians and bands. One writer in particular which influenced her drive to succeed as a songwriter was Brian Tatler; writer and guitarist of Diamond Head. The sessions spent with Brian and friend and guitarist Will Brettell, without doubt sealed Amy’s desire to be a singer songwriter. Highlights so far; Performing for the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh for the Queens 80th Birthday celebrations back in 2006 with co-writers Tom Manning & Helena Dove from Staffordshire University. “This was a moment I will never forget. I remember it like it was yesterday. The Duke of Edinburgh was late for our performance and he got a bit of a telling off from her Majesty, so we were asked to play it again. Asked for an encore by the Royal household! Priceless!” Amy is known for her obsession with antiques & and gardening. Not very Rock 'n' Roll!
