Alexa Goldie is a Canadian singer from Kingston, Ontario.[1][2]

Goldie began performing in public at ten years old, began performing her own songs at twelve years old, signed with manager Cliff Fabri, at 13, and brought out her debut album "High Road" in 2020, when she was 21 years old.[1][2][3]

Early in her career Goldie was taken on by Cliff Fabri, the individual the Kingston Whig Standard credited with the success of Avril Lavigne, another singer who reached early success.[4]

In 2020, following the breakout of the Covid 19 virus, Goldie had to cancel her upcoming concert tour.[5] [5] A profile of Goldie from the Kingston Whig Standard described how she began to replace her planned in person concert tour with scheduling virtual concerts. Goldie described initial difficulties performing without an audience; how she overcame these difficulties; and how she was recognized as an example of an artist who was successfully transitioning to virtual concerts.
