‘Outstanding, energetic, breathtaking’ – Swanage Blues Festival 2024

‘A must-see live act’- Real Rock Radio March 2024


Born and educated in Macclesfield, Cheshire but now based in Gloucestershire, Alex’s passion for blues music began as a teenager when he came across Joe Bonamassa’s album ‘Don’t Talk’ and was immediately hooked and inspired by the virtuosity and complexities of Joe’s playing. So began his love and exploration of a huge range of blues music, whilst Joe has continued to be both a huge influence for Alex’s development as a musician as well as his inspiration to become the best player he possibly can be. Alex is a passionate advocate for the benefits of music-making on young people, especially those with speech disfluency, and was recently appointed as a Youth Ambassador for the UK Blues Federation. He also works for Rock Steady as a tutor, inspiring young musicians of the next generation.


Alex's playing owes much to the blues/rock influence of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Bonamassa, coupled with a refreshing and high-octane personal style. In 2021 he formed the Alex Voysey Blues Band with virtuosic funk bass player Ben Hands on his monster 6 string Dingwall, the talents of drum maestro Paul Arthurs and musical theatre director Andy Alpass on keys and theremin - four consummate musicians who feed off each other’s virtuosity and musical integrity to deliver shows packed with incredible guitar performances, phenomenal musicianship, funky grooves and catchy riffs! Their original material is engaging, complex and memorable and when coupled, this is a band that is constantly evolving and excites audiences wherever they go.

Their trio album AV3 reached no 10 in the IBBA charts in January 2024 and their spectacular new album ‘Blues In Isolation’ produced by Paul Long (Catfish/BB King/BBC Radio 2) launched in March 2024 to a sold-out Cheltenham Playhouse. The first single released from the album, Whiskey and Wine, has been hailed by renowned jazz and blues broadcaster Spencer Evans as ‘exceptional’ and the album is IBBA’s pick of the month for April 2024.

Recent highlights have included their sold-out debut at the legendary Soho Pizza Express jazz club and headlining at the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival, with sold-out debut shows at Swanage Blues Festival, Diseworth Blues Club and Skipton Town Hall more recently.


Since graduating from Leeds College of Music in 2017, Alex also works as a session guitarist with many of the country’s leading symphony orchestras, including the Hallé, CBSO, RLPO, RTE Dublin, BBCNOW, London Concert Orchestra and Manchester Camerata across a variety of styles including West End/Bond/Abba/Nashville/80’s/90s shows and several film with live orchestra screenings in major concert halls of ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Skyfall’ with ‘Top Gun Maverick’ coming up in November 2024.


Alex currently owns several guitars but is especially fond of the blue Les Paul which he and his dad built together a decade ago. It took him all the way through music college and is still used on nearly every gig!
