Bellatrix is a musical explorer and songwriter from Bristol, UK. Primarily a bass player and vocalist, she also holds the titles of 2009 world beatbox champion, 2014 UK beatbox champion, 2015 world team beatbox champion and 2015 UK team beatbox champion. Unlike most beatboxers, Bellatrix has a degree in jazz double bass from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. Her broad palette of influences from hip-hop to jazz, folk, and downright weird, is apparent across her music and character.
Known for her work with independent power-house girl band The Boxettes and psychedelic hip-hop outfit Dizraeli and The Small Gods, it is only now after years of extensive collaborations and international performances as a beatboxer and bassist, that Bellatrix reveals a new slant to her identity as an artist. It turns out that she has an unusual and distinctive singing voice and a whole load of songs that nobody has ever heard before. In her new show, Bellatrix uses live looping with her voice, bass and synth to conjure images of an abstract world drenched in sounds you can taste, and everything it is to be human.
