BEX is a Ghanaian-born, up-and-coming artist from Vienna. Her path to music was rather unconventional, but that's what makes her journey so eclectic. She has always had a love for music and has been writing poetry as a hobby since her youth. A hobby that became a passion through the persuasion of her best friend. A passion that allows her to express herself in her most authentic form.
In 2021, she started working on her sound. From then on, she has paired her confidence and skills with the right amount of explicit content to allow her listeners to take a break from their reality to escape into her fantasy.
Her debut as an artist began with two features on W1ZE's EP "Down Low," which was nominated for Best Sound at the 2022 Amadeus Austrian Music Awards. BEX once again proved her versatility with her next feature on the Nono Punch-produced track "Bounce," effortlessly merging her rhymes and flows with the beat to create a perfect powerhouse banger. Bounce entered Vienna's FM4 charts and made it clear that BEX is here to stay! In November 2022, she officially released her debut single "Midnight Playground", with which she gained her second entry into the FM4 charts.
Within a very short period of time, the young artist has created her own space to blossom. But this is just the beginning. Her next projects are in the pipeline, but how they will sound or what genre they will belong to remains to be seen. One thing is for sure though, you can always expect the unexpected from BEX, after all her personal favorite verse comes from none other than the rap legend Lil Wayne: "Real G's move in silence like lasagna".
