After a 5 year hiatus, the award-winning Beatrix Players are back with an eight piece line up and an intriguing new concept album.
Founding member, writer and vocalist, Amy Birks is joined on the album by her co-writers from the original Beatrix Players lineup, Helena Dove, and guitarist Tom Manning.
Also joining this expanded group are flautist John Hackett, guitarist Oliver Day (That Joe Payne / Yes Please), drummer Andrew Booker (Tim Bowness/No-Man), cellist Jane Fenton (LSO, LCO, RPO, Britten Ensemble etc), pianist Matthew Lumb and bassist Kyle Welch.
Birks says: “Living & Alive is an honest album, that explores how life isn’t just about living, but that it’s about having the courage to really be alive and own it. Simply put; you are your best you, and will only ever be second best if you’re trying to be something other than you…“
