Profile

Hailing from deep in the heart of Shropshire, and now residing in the folk-infused depths of Cornwall, Alex is an authentic British singer-songwriter. With his easy charm, road-worn voice and modern folk sound, the future is looking very bright indeed for this humble but most impressive British musical talent.


Alex has been duly touring the South West circuit for years, playing to sell-out crowds at venues like the Eden Project in support of international stars such as Jack Johnson and Paolo Nutini. The excited buzz around his shows in the Alps earned him support gigs for KT Tunstall, Newton Faulkner and Squeeze at both the Altitude and Little World festivals.


As one third of AlBenAza, Alex enjoyed massive success amongst the South West student population and played festivals, bars and cafés all over the UK and Europe. When the roots/rock trio’s musical paths lead them in different directions, he moved on to become lead guitarist for exceptional Cornish singer-songwriter Ruarri Joseph and started to build up his solo career.


" The day was amazing and the band were brilliant. Al's guitar at the ceremony was perfect and him and the band in the evening were incredible - played the first dance perfectly and then the whole set was awesome. There was genuinely never a single moment when the dance floor wasn't packed with people. The band were so great they even didn't take a break and just played straight through! And it was really nice they'd learned and played some Elvis tunes especially for us. They honestly couldn't have been any more perfect. We had loads of people saying they were the best wedding band they've ever seen. Thanks again- it genuinely made the event "

" We cant thanks Alex enough for his fantastic music on our wedding day. He allowed my friend to sing alongside him which was really special and provided the best background music for our field wedding. All of our guests commented on how talented he was and he kept all of our guests entertained. He was very professional and approachable and i would highly recommend Alex to anyone planning a very relaxed wedding that wants a very talented lovely young chap to perform. "
