2016 & 2017 Downbeat Critic’s Poll Rising Female Vocalist, runner up in the 2014 Made in NY Jazz Competition, winner of the 2011 Jazzon Alpe-Adria International Competition and nominee in the category of Best Jazz Composition for the 2011 PORIN Awards - the Croatian Music Academy’s honor equivalent to the Grammy Awards in America. 

Thana Alexa released « Ode To Heroes » (Jazz Village/Harmonia Mundi) in March 2015, an album of original compositions and vocal arrangements, which bring together elements of jazz, pop and world music. The album mainly features her engaging original compositions, along with vibrant takes on jazz standards like Shorter’s « Footprints », « Mingus », « Goodbye Pork Pie Hat » and Desmond and Dave Brubeck’s «Take 5 ». Most importantly, it spotlights Alexa’s ability to engage in rewarding and illuminating musical conversation with some of the music’s most renowned and forward-thinking players.

On her upcoming album (set for release in 2018) Thana dives into the exploration of textural soundscapes, vocal effects and the importance of making a relevant statement about our time through art. This crossover album integrates elements of jazz with soul, electronica and pop, opening a door of accessibility and appeal to sophisticated music for wider audiences without diluting its complexity and depth. It makes a strong statement about the role women play in music and in the world – a role that makes female influence and strength undeniable. The album explores the vastness of humanity and our duty as people to be the change we want to see in the world.

Alexa is an active member of Antonio Sanchez' touring ensemble « Migration » (Grammy winner for the Birdman film score as well as Pat Metheny’s drummer) and has recorded two critically acclaimed albums with the group: « New Life  » and « The Meridian Suite » (Seamus Blake, John Escreet, Matt Brewer).
