About

Born in Macclesfield, Alex grew up surrounded by orchestral musicians and in 2017 graduated from Leeds College of Music, with a degree in Popular Music.

Since then he has worked across many genres and with a wide range of artists, including the MD of Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, James Pearson, vocalists Mick Wilson (10cc), Lance Ellington (Strictly Come Dancing), Matt Ford (John Wilson Orchestra) and Capital Voices. He also works regularly with the CBSO and Hallé orchestras across a variety of styles including West End/  Abba/ 80's/ Nashville/ Bond themed shows and was thrilled to perform the iconic Bond theme in recent film with live orchestra screenings of both ‘Casino Royale’ and ‘Skyfall’ in Manchester and Harrogate.

Alex is also a frequent performer in smaller local venues. He is a passionate advocate for blues music and loves to bring his twist on both traditional and modern to new and community-based audiences. 

Alex is a passionate music educator and whilst still in Leeds he supported visually imparted young musicians at Junior College and taught in schools across the city for ArtForms. After moving south, he was invited to tutor on Peter Gill’s Rock Schools, the Everyman Youth Theatre summer school in Cheltenham and enjoys teaching private pupils alongside creating bespoke music packages for primary schools in his community who are without specialist provision.

Alex is currently out on tour with his blues travelogue show 'Old Dogs, New Tricks' which sold out and received rave reviews at its debut at Broadway Arts Festival in 2021, and is also working on a tribute show to the great Joe Bonamassa alongside developing material for the AV Trio.

His debut blues album, ‘Head In A Blur’ was released in early 2020.
