Alexandra Alden (born 8 April 1994) is a Maltese singer-songwriter, raised in Tutzing, Germany.

She also provides backing vocals for Country/Americana band Martin McNeil & The Dissidents and can be heard on several tracks on their debut album.

In 2012, she performed with Stalko at their album release concert at the Orpheum Theatre in Gzira.

In 2013, she was invited to perform live as one of the interval acts at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2013, where was accompanied by percussionist Luke Briffa.

Her debut EP The Curious Child was released on Bandcamp, on 13 April 2013. It was produced and arranged by Mark McRae.

Later that year she moved to Utrecht, The Netherlands to begin her studies in Jazz music and now resides in Rotterdam where she is currently studying for her bachelor's degree at the CODARTs Conservatory.

In late 2014, Alexandra won the second edition of the 'JongQuiteQuiet' Songwriting Competition hosted in Delft.

Soon after, she was invited to be the opening act for Dutch songwriter, Michael Prins (winner of the popular TV program, de Beste Singer-Songwriter van de Nederlands) and released the single 'Ladybird' accompanied by a video online.

Summer 2015 saw Alexandra's return to Malta for a few months of performances where she played solo or accompanied by guitarist Warren Galea for jazz sets. She also opened for Tribali at the Farson's Beer Festival in July.

Alexandra released a fully-acoustic, live-on-the-spot recording of a new composition called 'Darling' featuring a video of her surroundings in Rotterdam (i.e. parts of the historical centre) which was filmed by Felipe Pipi. It received many positive reviews.

She is now recording a new EP.
