Limelight: Introducing enchanting chamber pop trio Beatrix Players
Meet the three women making hauntingly beautiful sounds
“There is no frontwoman in Beatrix Players,” explains the band’s vocalist, Amy Birks. “A crucial part of our sound is the layering of vocals, combined with mass instrumentation provided by the three of us and our instruments.”
The three leading ladies – Australian pianist Jess Kennedy, Spanish-born cellist Amanda Alvarez and Birks, who hails from Staffordshire – formed powerful neo-classical folk prog band Beatrix Players in 2013.
