Solex inventive musical endeavours (with for example the Maarten Altena Ensemble) showcase a vocal presence (and a keen sense of humor) you won’t find elsewhere.
The Solex live show has evolved into a thing of extraordinary dexterity, merging the idiosyncrasies of her albums with the immediacy of a live band. In the past she played The Lowlands Festival, SxSW, Popkomm, CMJ, Noorderslag, Les Printemps de Bourges, Roskilde, toured Japan, Europe, Iceland, South America, the United States, done six Peel Sessions, and met lots of nice people.
Since the "Laughing stock of Indie rock" album she's mainly been playing live with Marit de Loos (on drums).
